The ‘C’ Wall

Mid-century inspired pattern

The ‘C’ Wall

I am still working on and refining my technique for creating walls that reflect my background in using patterns to make three-dimensional textures.

This particular design is very much mid-century inspired following the type of designs that were made in the early 1950s in the UK. The motif itself is created from a rectangle although the effect from a distance is to make it look like a capital letter C. It is for this reason that the article is so named.

The motif, if you look carefully, is a lot more complex than a simple letter and uses various colours sourced from mid-century to produce the effect. The scale used is a small one which allows you to see the pattern from a distance although for the visitor the effect on the wall should be a total one of a texture rather than an individual pattern. Using such a simple device as this I saw the wallpaper being used in a modern room although it is shown here in my mid-century themed living area.

The effect of the pattern is, I hope, to take the eye of the visitor across the room thus showing its size and scale. I have also included on my Flickr page (I’m afraid you will have to go there to see it) a close-up of the image above which shows the pattern in more detail.

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