Aff429 Jewelled Feature Wallcovering

The purpose of jewellery is to provide small but noticeable flashes of light and colour in order to decorate what might otherwise be a relatively plain and perhaps featureless exterior area.

Taking this idea and using it as a wallcovering, this design takes a simple motif with mid-century roots and adds small jewels onto the surface. It is not, sadly, possible to make the coloured areas reflect light in the way that jewellery would but it still has a similar and unusual effect.

Looking further into the idea of creating Belle Epoque styles with a mid-century look, I spent a little time researching jewellery from that era on Bing image feed. It was well worth the time spent and if you have a moment it is worth doing in order to get a sense of the way that the shapes were used and an overall idea of the look of the style.

My own, somewhat humble, wallcovering is at least a start to produce a sophisticated wallpaper for a small area of wall in an upmarket modern dwelling. I have created some wallpaper designs on Society6 and I had said that I would keep to the dozen, or so, patterns that I had made but I am very tempted to add this to the collection.

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.
