Aff432 Belle Epoque 2 Pattern

This design was made for wallpaper but, in the event, it now seems that it is quite unsuitable even for a feature wall as the pattern is too bold and the colouring too stark.

However, when I had finished the pattern and realised that it was not working the way that I wanted, I tried some colour variations and, although these proved more suitable, they took away from the design some of the essence and life that I had created. A moment’s thought persuaded me that I should keep this design as a soft furnishing pattern for use, for example as a design for cushioning.

Sometimes, it is better to go with the flow of your idea rather than attempt to change a pattern simply to make it fit into one of the boxes in your mind. I thought it was worthwhile putting this pattern up both as a soft furnishing pattern but also to make the point above. Aside from all this, the design was created as a Belle Epoque 2 design and I have to say that I feel that it fits all of my criteria for that purpose.

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.
