Aff524 As Pattern

Patterns like this did appear in the United Kingdom in the 1950s and were produced by the new and upcoming designers who were inspired by the modern art trends that have been taking place in Europe during the formative years of the decade.

The whole idea of this design is to produce a regular, Belle Epoque 2 style design that is suitable for a wallcovering. The motif itself could well exist mid-century and the colours are taken from my extended mid-century range of colours that would have been used at the time.

Mid-century wallpaper tended not to be ornate and the trend for slightly more minimalist and plain, sparse separated motifs was being developed during that period. At that time it was thought, as I believe now, that walls should be decorated rather than plain and the decoration ranged from bizarre during the mid-1960s to sparse in the 1950s and it is this latter period that I was hoping to emulate. Whether this makes good wallpaper or not we will see when I try to apply it as a texture to a wall.

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.
