Floral Living

Floral LivingFloral LivingI have to admit that I don’t produce that many floral type patterns, basically because I don’t really relate to them in any meaningful way. There isn’t a particular reason for this, I suppose that it’s just the way I am. However, every rule has to have its exceptions.

So I had a floral day of sorts and designed this pattern which I intended right from the start to be a wall covering for a main room. This living room set, which I often use, is designed to be for mid-century styles and this pattern uses both mid-century colours as well as a motif that is inspired by designs from those decades.

The effect on the room is to make it much more of a mid-century style room and to make it seem more ‘decorated’ than it would if I had used either plain colours for the wall or, alternatively, I had used a very small patterned wall covering.

Overall, I am pleased with the result since it turns this room into much more of a living space and gives it a more homely feel. It looks as if i used magnolia for the base and then, according to my notes, marble green, poppy red, canary yellow, Bredon green and finally brass and flake grey with a stroke of chocolate.

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.
