Aff516 Pattern

This is a modern pattern, intended as a furniture pattern, but one which has a very mid-century origin although that origin is not immediately apparent.

Motifs such as this, which are basically geometric motifs, were quite common in the 1950s in the United Kingdom and here I have used them in square confines in order to produce an overall design. The colouring is taken from my extended mid-century palette and uses the sort of colour that might have been used on mid-century furniture.

These days, furnishings have a variety of patterns and colours, many of which are much bolder. However, there is still a place, I feel, for more traditional colours and patterns and I will experiment using this as a texture on perhaps a sofa and see the result

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.
