Early Flowers

This is called ‘Early Flowers’ because it is based on the type of flower motif that was used early in the mid-century decades and had been used ever since the beginning of the 20th century.

Here the motif is used, as it was probably originally intended, as a wallpaper or possibly as a fabric for curtains. I like fairly quick repeats and I also like to see the way that a pattern looks when it is composed of just one motif. As a wallpaper, this will not catch the eye but will look interesting and decorative on either a feature wall or perhaps two or three walls in a room.

In order to make the pattern look more solid, I have squeezed up the repeats so that, from a distance, the design looks pixelated. The effect of this is to make the dimensions of the room look less obvious and to try and create a softer feel to the walls. Used as a curtain material the effect would be a similar one.

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.
