Mid-century Grey Carpet Pattern: Swatch

Carpet for flooring seems to have gone out of fashion in favour of floor boards which I think look cold and unfriendly by comparison.

Mid-century carpet patterns are hard to define since they covered a large area, ranging from florals left over from pre-war days to more modern and adventurous designs. This pattern tries to be simple but elegant and to show off the dimensions of the room and make it interesting and inviting for a visitor.

The colours used are mid-century ones being dark admiralty grey for the background with lovely nightshade and brass for the motif. The effect, as I have tried to demonstrate, is to take the eye along the room to emphasis its dimensions and lead the eye of the visitor to the sofa at the end.

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.
