Aff407 Candie

This pattern is very much in the early 1960s style using motifs of stylised flowers which would, in later years, become much more flamboyant but which, for now, were a little more restrained.

The colour scheme is a simple blue and pink for the motif and a contrast and non-invasive scheme for the squares behind. The intention with this pattern was to create a design which looked pleasant and perhaps a little homely. My intention was to create a range of products on Redbubble which were both for homeware and for fashion and you can see the result above.

I did try other colour schemes but none of them seemed to have the appeal of the design above, which was the first one that I created and so there is perhaps a lesson there for me to learn. My wife is always telling me not to mess with the designs that I create because I rarely seem to make them any better!

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.
