Aff512 Wallpaper

My first thought was that I should use this as soft furnishing and I therefore tried it as a curtain material where it was moderately successful. However, trying it as wallpaper produced a far better effect as you can see above.

As I have already said, abstract designs are a departure for me and, having given the matter some thought, I am not sure if it is a path that I want to actively pursue. I feel much more at home with geometric style patterns, the sort of patterns that you are accustomed to seeing from me.

However, this pattern does give the room, it is an upmarket apartment, a different and quite exciting look which I was very pleased to see once the image had been produced by my software.

Aff512 Pattern

Before you rush to tell me, this not a Belle Epoque 2 pattern, it is a pure abstract design and follows some research I did into abstract patterns used mid-century on soft furnishings and wall coverings in the United Kingdom.

The design of abstract patterns is very different and a very new departure for me since I normally begin my patterns with some form of geometric design. Initially I was not sure how good this pattern would look in relation to the work that I already do but I decided to press ahead and see the finished product.

Until you use a pattern it is difficult to say whether it is a successful design or not and, in any event, the success of a design is determined by other people and so I will try this as either soft furnishing or a wallcovering and we will see the result.

Aff511 Pattern

I very much like this pattern because it seems to embody my ideas of Belle Epoque 2 and it also seems to flow very well both from left to right and from up to down which should mean that it will take with it the viewers eye.

The motifs are predominantly red with just interspersed blue and green which gives the overall look of a red polka dot pattern. Although intended as a wallpaper, this design would work equally well, I feel, as a fashion pattern.

I had hoped to use this as wallpaper although, now that it is finished, it does look quite strongly coloured and this, perhaps, may influence its subsequent use.

Aff510 Wallpaper

This is the wallpaper design from yesterday applied to the walls of a large and moderately luxurious dining room in what would be a British house.

The pattern uses a small-scale and from the angle of the camera, the walls running away from the viewer streak the pattern quite noticeably. However, for a visitor to the room this would not be noticeable as the visitor looks around.

Rather than plain walls, these walls are decorated but not so much as to catch the visitors eye but, rather, to appear just decorated. The pattern does, of course, relieve the boredom and blankness of a completely plain wall.

Aff510 Pattern

This is designed as a wallpaper pattern and is intended to be used on one wall as a feature pattern. However, it has to be said, it is not a feature pattern which is going to be instantly noticeable although it will, I hope, provide a focal point in the room and will also enhance its look for a visitor.

The motif is a simple Belle Epoque 2 style pattern at a relatively small scale although I might look at the possibility of reducing the scale further once it is used on the wall. For the colours, I used those from the British Standard and for the background I chose buttermilk and for the motifs I used golden brown, poppy red and canary yellow.

I am thinking along the lines of using this for an upmarket style apartment or something of that nature and I am looking forward to the chance to experiment and see which looks best.

I like curtains to be quite bold and dramatic and to form a statement for a room, often being the focus of attention for the visitor as they enter. However, this is not the only way to design a curtain material.

This pattern is a much more gentle pattern and is designed to create in the image two slightly different looks. From a distance, and this is how I saw the pattern, the effect is of a very simple design against a plain background. Looking closer, however, you can see that there is a contrast colour in the dots which, when you look at the swatch, is quite apparent.

The colour is pleasant, restful and muted and the motif is a simple one that is designed to be easy on the eye. The whole purpose of the design is to create a curtain material which is interesting yet not one which will overburden the room.

Aff508 Wallpaper

I’m pleased to say that my whimsical pattern worked well as a wallpaper without the need to change the background and it produced just the effect that I think I was looking for.

The set is a living room set that I have used before which shows the wallpaper used on two adjoining walls with the opposite wall, the window and door wall, finished just in plain paint. The pattern is shown at a very small scale which, as I suggested in the previous post, gives the wall a granular look and, I think, an interesting look without it being too bold or too overpowering.
