Aff445 Pattern

This is a wall covering pattern that was designed from the outset just to be wallpaper and, now that it is finished, I think that this is probably going to be its final purpose since I doubt whether it would make a realistic textile.

The design, as I’m sure you will realise, is mid-century and draws on the work done in the 1950s in the United Kingdom. The shapes are simple ones but they are the type of shapes that could have been found during that period and the colours are taken from my extended British Standard range of colours that would have been in use at the time.

This type of pattern is very much the type of pattern that I had in mind when I began thinking about Belle Epoque 2 since it uses relatively small motifs with a fast repeat. The overall effect from a distance is of an undulating solid colour which I think would make this suitable for general use as a wallcovering rather than just for a feature wall.

In terms of its ability as decoration, it will obviously not set the world alight nor will it catch the visitors eye and leave them impressed on entering. It is, however, the type of decoration that looks right in a room and prevents the large areas of wall from fading into the background and from looking too artificial. That is, it makes the walls look as though they are in a room in a house which is also a home.

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.
