Aff458 Pattern

Blue is a colour that I tend to use with a little caution since it is a strong colour and not really one that was overused during the mid-century decades or, at least, not in the way that I’m using it here as a background.

This colour is midnight blue and the remaining colours are simple mid-century colours from the range of colours in use at the time. The shapes, too, are simple ones and the repeat is a fast one with the set of motifs rotated each time. Simple this pattern may be but the design, I believe, looks far more complex when seen in the context of a full pattern, and will look even better when it is used as a texture for a fabric. It does, of course, fall well within my ideas of Belle Epoque 2.

Anyone who notices my numbering system will see at once that we are jumping nine digits to arrive at this pattern number and perhaps wonder why. Everyone has a design every now and again which, for whatever reason, does not work but it is unusual to have a run of designs which, with hindsight, are best consigned to the rubbish bin. However, that is what happened here and perhaps it happens to everyone but, at least, I seem to be back on track now.

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.
