Pattern of carefully placed mid-century inspired flowers on a background of leavesThis was a difficult pattern to do in many ways, not because of any technical difficulty but because I was very concerned about the placement of the various elements within the design.

The actual pattern is a simple one of stylised, mid-century flowers placed on a background of leaves taken from the standard leaf patterns that appear to have been in existence for many, many years. What I wanted to do was to create clumps of colour and so I spent a lot of time working out the best placement of the three colours used for the flower motifs. The idea was to make the finished pattern, when used as a large area of fabric, show distinct areas of colour, some more prominent than others.

It is a little difficult to see whether I have succeeded from the pattern swatch and, once I and back to creating 3D scenes, I intend to use this as, for example, a curtain fabric where I hope my intentions will become clear.

I have explained about the motifs, the colours are mid-century type colours but taken from my expanded palate that I currently using.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
