Aff518 As Pattern

Don’t misunderstand me, I don’t dislike the idea of having the walls, the curtains, the carpet, the cushions and all items in the room created just in solid colours or textures. Such an idea has a natural grace and beauty in its cleanliness and emphasis on form and fine lines but what I do dislike is the idea of having no personal decoration within the living space.

In many respects I liked the mid-century clutter of patterns and designs although I would not want to see a complete return to those perhaps rather chaotic days. What I would like, and the inspiration behind the Belle Epoque 2 range of patterns, is for there to be the same playful and perhaps more intense decoration applied to some of the elements found within the room.

To that end this design is even simpler and, I think, even more effective than the Belle Epoque 2 designs I have featured recently. It creates a wallpaper which gives the wall a plain, open and solid coloured look but which also hints at a sense of personal decoration which makes the wall look individual and cared about rather than a plain colour which looks clinical and painted without thought.

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.
