Aff466 Design

Once again I have been thinking about my ideas for Belle Epoque 2 patterns and looking back at both the patterns created at the turn-of-the-century in Europe and also the designs that were being used in the United Kingdom, and in Europe, in the 1950s. Whilst the motifs and the way that the motives are used together are very different there is still an overall similarity in motif placement and in the way that the scale is used as well as the fast repeat.

To capitalise on this I have taken a 1950s decade idea and used some perhaps more modern designs for the motif and presented this using mid-century colours taken from my range of British Standard colours used at the time. I have, however, chosen those colours that I think more closely resemble the sort of colours that are used today.

I always have an idea in my mind of the final use for my patterns and this is intended as a wallpaper pattern for a feature wall, although a feature wall that is not intended to be too noticeable. This is the sort of wall where you want to catch the visitors eye when they enter the room but you do not want the design on the wall to dominate the space or to dictate choices within the room for other designs and colours. I shall spend a little time this afternoon using the pattern as a texture in Cinema 4D and see if I can produce a room that satisfies all these requirements.

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.
