Corton Nightshade

mid-century inspired surface pattern

Corton Nightshade

Surface patterns designed for fabric lend themselves well to their use as curtaining since this allows for a large area and so provides a good look at the design.

Here I have used lovely Corton Nightshade as the curtaining fabric in the West Avenue set but with one important difference. This time I have drawn the curtains to give a much bigger canvas for the design to show through. In order not to substantially change the colour or the look of the room I have not used a tungsten bulb in the lights so you have to imagine that the lighting uses natural daylight lights – the sort of light that I use at home.

Nightshade is a lovely colour (although not a particularly nice plant) and here I have teamed it with a very, very light apricot and a slightly silver coloured wallpaper and I think this this shows up the curtains well.

Corton nightshade is one of my designs that I have made available from Spoonflower as a fabric and also as a wallpaper. You can see the page on Spoonflower here.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
