A Riot Of Colour

The 1960s in the United Kingdom is always seen as a formative time for design but the patterns that people associate with the 60s really only occurred at the end of the decade.

It was a time of great innovation but it was also a time of great excess when boundaries and limits were pushed as far as they could go and often beyond. Many of the designs and ideas are perhaps a little too forceful and imaginative for today’s consumption but this pattern, I hope, is both acceptable and meaningful as a modern-day design. The pattern is very rooted in the ideas and motifs of that exciting time and the colouring is taken from my mid-century extended palette and is designed to represent the strides that were being made to bring in new and vibrant colouring.

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