Aff443 1950s Pattern

One of my particular interests are the designs created in the United Kingdom in the period initially following the Second World War, that is those designs that appeared from the talented pool of artists in the 1950s.

This design is my attempt to recreate the look of the 1950s both as it was then and as it is seen today by using the sort of motifs that would have been used at that time although these motifs have a fresher and more modern feel. The colouring is taken from my British Standard palette that was in use at the time and so the colouring would not look out of place in that period.

This is not wallpaper, although the patterns were used extensively for wall covering, rather it is a textile design which I saw being used for the smaller soft furnishings around the home such as cushions and towels.

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.
