1950s Green Curtains Swatch

Colours tend to come in and out of fashion and the colour which everyone is using today will be the one that probably few will use next year.

Mid-century was not immune to this colour trend except that, because communication was slower and perhaps the pace of life more relaxed, colour fads tended to last longer. One particular colour which is not seen so much in modern times but which was very popular during most of the 1950s decade is green. At that time, quite saturated shades of green were used for paintwork, fabrics and around the house.

As part of my new collection of 1950s textures and objects, I have created a mid-1950s style surface pattern in this colour. You can see the swatch and the result of using this as a curtain texture above and it looks very different from the type of colours and patterns produced today.

The intention is to use this texture in a 1950s-style set which I am still working on but which I hope to be able to bring to you shortly.

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.
