Aff475 1950’s Style Pattern

This is one of those patterns that is instantly recognisable as a 1950s design and is one of the set referred to as ‘Atomic’ because the motifs originated from the quite marvellous scientific images of atomic activity that were being produced and shown to the world in general.

As well as being instantly recognisable, they are also well liked by people although, I believe, that they have a slightly more limited usage. Sometimes we like decoration of a particular type and enjoy seeing it although we are less likely to use it in our homes. The reason for this, I think, is the there is a lot of contrast in the colours and in the motifs and this makes the pattern a little too disturbing and colourful to be suitable for either wallpaper or soft furnishings.

However, this does not stop me from creating these patterns and of this particular one I like both the colours, which are mid-century, and the motifs which I think would look perfectly in place during the mid-century 1950s.

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.
