Large scale patterns like this one began to appear in the 1960s and this influenced the following decade and then, like all fashions, they vanished only to begin appearing again in this currently century.

I created this design from mid-century motifs intending it to be used at a large scale on this wall because I felt that the wall was big enough to handle the pattern. The colours used are, as always, from the mid-century palette in use at the time and my notes reveal them as midnight blue for the background and then middle brown, canary yellow, Post Office red and finally lovely parakeet.

I have to admit to liking this room and the design at this scale seems to lead the eye across the width towards the light from the window thus emphasising the dimensions of the room. If this were my room (and I have to be honest – I wish it was) then I would have this wallpaper no problem!

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
