Aff413 Barnly

This is a fascinating pattern that rather, and perhaps unexpectedly, created itself in the software as I began working. The intention was to make a small-scale, square device which I would then rotate by 90°, positioning it next to the first motif, and then proceeding from there.

The motif was inspired by a ‘bootlace’ idea that I was then working on. If you look carefully you can see the eyelet holes and the lace running across. This is then echoed with a little central oval to produce the final pattern. The colours, as you may expect, are mid-century ones, while the background is chocolate rather than pure black.

The overall look of the pattern is solid and swirly, intended to catch and confuse the eye and to make a statement. I have used a version of this pattern for some homeware products, wallpaper, cushions and a duvet cover, and I was pleased with the result.

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.
