Another Mid-century Grey Carpet Pattern:

Carpets are carpets and this one is the second in a row! Ah, but there is a magic to designing floor patterns because they look so different as carpet compared to the way that the pattern falls when you see it as a swatch.

It is, I suppose, because of the dimensions of the room and the fact that the carpet recedes away as you look at it. This gives the pattern quite a different look and seems to enhance the lines and colour.

As in the last example, this consists of simple mid-century motifs on a grey background, but the effect is very different since this pattern emphasis the width rather than the length of the room.

The pattern was more complex than it looks, the colours are recorded as charcoal and flake grey for the background and then for the motif I used shire grey and Minerva grey with lines of magnolia and Mid Brunswick Green.

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.
