Aff513 Pattern And Match

There are two patterns today to see, I began creating this design to be used as curtains but decided that it would be useful to have at hand a similar and matching colour for cushions or other soft furnishings. The top swatch above represents the curtains while the other would be for the cushions.

These patterns are designed for a modern room although they take their inspiration, as does almost all of my work, from mid-century designs and patterns produced in the United Kingdom in the 1950s and 60s. The motif is simple although this is not a Belle Epoque 2 design since the pattern does not have a fast repeat and the colouring is far too bland. The purpose of the design is to produce a fabric which is predominantly of one colour but with a simple, sparse decoration to add interest.

The design for the cushion is, once again, a simple one but one which adds interest and produces a pattern which, while not prominent, will catch the eye of a visitor and enhance the look of the surrounding furniture.

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.

Below is a link at Amazon UK for Color And Pattern by Khristian Howell which I found so useful (and still use) for creating patterns.
