Into The 1970s!

Mid-century inspired pattern

Into The 1970s!

The 1970s, at least in the United Kingdom, is always seen as a time of cooling down and taking stock after the riotous things that happened the decade before.

However, there is more to it than that; it was a decade that had its own character and its own version of the styles and patterns of the 1960s. So far as designs went, bigger was better and patterns expanded to fill as much space as was possible. Walls, in particular, had a fearsome expanse of patterning that made rooms appear smaller and much more concentrated.

This pattern, created as a cushion material, would also have looked good as 1970s wallpaper, embodying, as it does, the very much favoured repeated circular motifs. On all of the walls, the pattern is too dark but as a feature wall in the right sort of house it would have looked eye-catching.

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
