Aff514 Pattern

This is a Belle Epoque 2 type pattern that has what I call a two-tone effect built in so that the overall look of the design catches the eye because it seems at first look to be unusual.

This design falls into my category of Belle Epoque 2 because it is of a relatively small-scale and it also has a fast repeat. During creation, I saw this pattern as being suitable for wallpaper or as an alternative for the standard soft furnishings and I shall spend a little time trying various alternatives to see which works best.

The inspiration for the design comes from both the motifs of the 1960s as they were used in the United Kingdom along with the overall look that wallpapers had during the 1970s. The colouring is taken from my extended mid-century palette.

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 to a product on Amazon UK for Color And Pattern, a book about pattern creation by Khristian Howell which I found so useful (and still do and still use). It is well worth a look.
