Mid-Century Circles Swatch

The modern trend developed over the last few years is to have curtains that are of just a single colour with very little decoration to them.

And yet the curtains at our windows can, and often do, perform a very important decorative task. When the curtains are open and daylight and views from outside enter the room then this provides a good focal point. Close the curtains, however, and you lose the view and you also lose that focus, particularly if the curtains are a uniform colour.

Curtains are an obvious choice when it comes to creating both a focal and and a point of interest and this is where patterns play a big part. I created this design to look like a typical midcentury pattern and used it for the curtains in the typical living room set that I use. The result is an instant point of interest within the room. Look at the picture above and imagine the curtains being a uniform light grey or brown and you begin to see my point.

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