Mid-Century Teardrop Design

Mid-century inspired pattern

Mid-Century Teardrop Design Swatch

Teardrop motifs have been in existence for a good many years, certainly since before the mid-century decades and are usually just an ellipse pulled slightly out of shape.

They are used here with some straight lines to give a simple but very effective look to a wallpaper that was intended to be used in a 1960s room. Here the room is the living room that I often use because the light through the window seems to look so good. Overall the effect is not spectacular, not instantly 1960s, but it is the sort of wallpaper that would have been chosen by many householders in that period to create a pleasant and also relaxing living area.

According to my notes (accuracy not guaranteed because I do change colours and forget to change the note) I used a background of silver gleam, motif colours of brass, montella, clover leaf, poppy red and orange while the stroke is chocolate.

If you would like to see larger versions of these designs and my other work then you can do so on my Flickr page, a link to which is here
