Sunshine Curtains

Nature, and particularly sunshine, has been an influence on our ideas of decoration, particularly interior decoration, for many years and this was just as true mid-century as it is today.

This design is a little based on mid-century but it is a lot based on the basic idea of sunshine after rain. Although a simple pattern, the effect when used as curtaining is to give the room an aspect of a sunny day – even if the view outside is miserable and gloomy.

In my living room set, showing just the curtains, the view outside was neither gloomy nor sunny and this shows very clearly how the yellow in the pattern makes the outside look brighter and more inviting. Notice also that the regular pattern looks different because the curtains, as is often the case, are closer folded where they are regularly pulled in order to close them at night. This has the rather nice effect of making the pattern at the inside edges look closer together.

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