Aff465 Carpet Design

I considered the prospect of moving house recently and I reviewed several possible houses and noticed that all but one had wooden floors. I have to admit to being impressed by the look of floorboards although I know from experience that the reality is not quite as good.

Wooden floors are not as cosy as carpet nor are they as warm underfoot although they are, perhaps, simply to keep clean. What I dislike about them is the look of poverty that they bring to a room which is quite different from the richness and sometimes opulence of a good quality carpet.

This design was intended as carpet and was, I suppose, my attempt to create a design that I would like to have seen in one or more of the houses that I viewed. The inspiration for the pattern is from 1950s United Kingdom designs and, as ever, the colouring is taken from colours which were used at the time. I have taken the liberty of picking the brighter and nicer hues to create a design which is both homely, comforting and, I hope, opulent.

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.
