Scaled Clouds Swatch

This is yet another experiment in using small scale patterns to produce both a pattern and, when seen from a distance by a visitor, a texture.

The pattern itself is a complex pattern, originally called clouds, which is used at a very small scale in order to produce on the wall the effect of a texture. This is an effect I have used before although in this case I have made the scale a little looser. The image above is the one that you would see if you were seated in a chair in the room.

To help make this clear I have included on my Flickr page an image which shows the same room as it would look if you stood about 6 foot (2 m) from the wall. From here it is obvious that the pattern is a pattern although to the visitor entering the room the effect is that the wall appears as a texture.

The trend these days is to use more solid colours and less traditional patterns on walls but I feel that this often has the effect of making the room look cold and uninviting. However, I feel, that using a pattern like this as a texture makes the room look much warmer and gives it a more cosy feel.

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