Large Pattern 70s Wallpaper Swatch

The 1970s, at least in the United Kingdom, was a good time for patterned wallcoverings and it would seem from research that most people would have hung wallpaper on their walls.

Today that seems odd with so many painted walls but I suppose the idea then was to stay in fashion and take advantage of the many different and exciting patterns that were around. Walls are ideal for decoration and the effect is to brighten up the room and provide interest both for the house owner and for the visitor. This design is not intended to catch the visitor’s eye but merely to look good and provide a canvas that takes the eye along the length of the room accentuating the dimensions.

My notes give the colours as orange for the background, jasmine, orange,
montella and poppy red for the motif while the stroke is chocolate. I do tend to alter colours at the last minute and forget to update the notes but I think that is still right.

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
