Green Stripes

Mid-century Inspired Patternaff156_01_mosaicFabric seems to suffer from the same problem that I feel besets wallpaper in that it, too, is often devoid of patterning in so many modern fabrics. While this is good in that it enables you to produce large areas of colour or of texture, the downside is that the rooms that it creates can seem drab, lifeless and lacking dimensionality.

I often feel, looking at images of such rooms, that I would soon tire of the surrounding or that I would feel bored and downcast at the lack of interest and stimulus.

This pattern, created in blues and greens from the mid-century palette, tries to inspire and to stimulate, bringing alive the large expanse of curtain at a window. I have deliberately chosen a simple set without the assistance of other items of furniture to show this effect.

The colours used are eau de nil for the background with Bredon green, fiesta blue and marine blue for the stripes.

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.
