Small Repeat – Big Wall Swatch

All right, so I’m cheating. I particularly like one pattern that I used sometime back – Ai343 – and over the weekend I was working on this pattern to make it look more orderly when I realised that it would look good as a very small scale pattern.

With a complete redesign and a small scale it now gives much more of an impression of horizontal movement which I think helps to give dimensional and scale to the size of this room (which is already quite large). It also, and this was the main point of my experiment, gives the wall a textured look which, to be honest, is far more the look I wanted than I have been able to get in previous work.

There is, of course, the added bonus that when you look closer you see the balance of the pattern and the way that the elements and groups of elements are being used. On my Flickr page I have shown a close-up to help show this. I am hoping that wallpaper like this, designed as a texture, is something which will catch on in the future.

You can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
