Aff431 Curtains

What makes this design special, I believe, is the overall look of red, in order to provide depth and interest, against the warm, not noticeable but very enveloping, magnolia background.

The motif is a simple mid-century design that could have come from the 1970s in the United Kingdom or, indeed, from either of the two previous decades. I have chosen quite a large-scale and you will see from the illustration above that the curtains are quite extensive and intended to be the curtaining that you would find at, for example, a hotel window. Having said this, however, I believe that these curtains would look equally effective and decorative put up at any window in a normal house.

The colours, as I mentioned above, are mid-century ones from the British Standard in use at the time and are poppy red, contrasted against magnolia. Within the design, as you can perhaps see on the swatch above, there is also the lovely mid-century marine blue.

Thinking about the idea of decoration within the home and creating a look which a visitor would find both interesting and appealing, I think that this material used as curtains would go a long way and so I have tagged it as Belle Epoque2.

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.
