Mid-century inspired pattern

Curtain Fabric Mauve Swatch

I decided to make a design that, whilst mid-century in inspiration and in feeling, had perhaps a more modern look.

The background colour mauve is not a mid-century colour. There are various blues but the colouring does not extend far enough and so this was an interesting project for me in which I explored some new ground.

The pattern placed on the background is much more mid-century as are the colours and, if you change the background, the resulting pattern would not look out of place in the 1960s. On my Flickr page I have included a swatch which shows the same pattern but with a plain midnight blue mid-century background rather than the mauve muted tartan. If you look at this you will see exactly what I mean.

In fact, having thought about this, I will post tomorrow the same scene but this time with the midnight blue pattern curtain so that you can decide for yourself which one you prefer.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns on my fabulous and ever-growing Flickr page which is here.
