Aff481 Pattern

This was designed as wallpaper and as an all–over pattern but once it was near completion I decided that, although the pattern had a fast repeat and fitted the Belle Epoque 2 criteria well, it would show the lines across the wall much too strongly and I had second thoughts.

The basic design is a version of mid-century motifs using mid-century colours in, what I think, is a pleasing arrangement. It should have made a perfect wallpaper but, as they say, the proof is in the final look and in this particular case I thought it was not worth proceeding with. Rather than throw the design away I changed the colours, although keeping them mid-century, and produced this pattern which I like very much indeed. Now, this pattern would look good on a feature wall or even as soft furnishing for cushions although not, because of the thin lines, for curtains.

The background is poppy red while the lines are magnolia, colours so beloved of those in the 1960s and 1970s decades. The lines are made a little stronger on some of the motives to make them stand out a little more and so give the pattern some ‘depth’.

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.
