Aff519 As Wallpaper

Bearing in mind all that I had said, I wondered whether this particular pattern, posted yesterday, would make a good wallpaper design for a modern room. But I need not have worried, as you can see from the image above, it makes a wallpaper that makes the room.

At this scale which, incidentally, is just a little larger than I had envisaged, the wallcovering looks both sophisticated and distinctive giving the room a look which is both modern and yet decorated. The light colour of the background to the wallpaper also allows me to experiment with a bolder colour on the wall by the window using, incidentally, a colour taken from the flower in the wallpaper.

You could go further and create accents with the cushions and also echo the red colour throughout the room. The regular nature of the repeat, designed to embody the ideas of Belle Epoque 2, would try to make the wall look wide and tall and let it stand out against the bolder colours of the wall either side if it was decided to use this as a feature wallpaper. Used all over, the effect would be, I imagine, to make the room seem larger and to emphasise the dimensions.

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
