Aff448 Pattern

This is very much in the 1950s tradition in the United Kingdom but it has, I hope you will agree, been bought up-to-date and suitable to consider as a modern wallpaper pattern.

The motif resembles the ‘boomerang’ shape that appeared and was used extensively in that decade. The colouring is from my extended British Standard range of colours that were in use at the time. I have used Magnolia for the background and a range of colours including the nicely named cobweb, along with mimosa, mustard, light grey and aurora.

At a small scale this will obviously fit in with my idea of Belle Epoque 2 but if I use too small a scale as wallpaper then the result is going to look very bitty to a visitor to the room standing at the doorway. My instinct is to use a medium scale so that from a distance the individual motifs will be recognisable. I am proposing to use this as a texture in a modern apartment living room and we will have to wait to see the final result.

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.
