Red Mid-Century Inspired

This is a very nice, very striking pattern that has its roots in mid-century designs but which contains perhaps more than the usual amount of my own attempts at creative input.

The flowers are 1960s flowers while the design was inspired by the patterns of the 1950s, particularly those produced at the beginning of the decade.

The colouring is a late 1960s very definite red with the motifs simply coloured as a contrast. The design, unusually, was not created with an end product in mind other than to be a soft furnishing fabric to be used, for example, with cushions or possibly with curtains although one would need to be careful not to overpower the room. On finishing this design and creating the image I was struck by the pattern of the motif which tends not to catch the eye but to force a more all over look, meaning that this might be more suitable for curtain type material. I may put this in my ‘to do’ list and see how it looks with different background colours and different rooms.

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.
