Aff446 Pattern And Wallpaper

In this pattern I have tried to create a design which could have come from the 1950s but which I have tried to make more up to date so that it looks a little more modern and a little less old-fashioned.

Designs like this appeared in the 1950s and, so far as I’m aware, they were completely fresh in that patterns like this had not really appeared before. I think it is also fair to say that, as the decade progressed, designs like this tended to disappear and have only begun to resurface with the interest in mid-century modern.

Many of these patterns were designed as wallpaper and it is for this use that I saw this design. I therefore used my mid-century modern room which has a long wall in order to show how the pattern would look as wallpaper. The swatch shows the background lighter but I wanted to create a warmer look to the wall so I used a slightly darker background colour. The pattern was never intended, I believe, to be used as a very small scale although to show it off to its best it does need a fairly large room.

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.
