Aff517 Pattern

I have not given up on Belle Epoque 2 patterns and this one, although having a somewhat newer origin, fits my criteria for Belle Epoque 2 as well as producing what could well be one of my nicest wallpaper designs.

The origin of this design lies back in the 1970s when the excesses of the previous decade were being curtailed and suddenly large circular patterns began to appear on walls. So far as I know, there was no one single reason for there introduction but I do remember that suddenly they seem to be everywhere.

The colours are mid-century colours taken from my extended palette and I have taken one liberty which you would not have found extensively in the 1970s. Instead of a light background I have used mid-century chocolate which gives the design is slightly more modern look. Wallpapers like this would have been available mid-century although they were not that common because the concept of feature walls was still being developed.

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.
