Aff526 As Wallpaper

It is often the case, or at least it is with me, that what I think will look good when seen as a swatch looks quite different when I actually apply it as a texture for either a wall or a textile. This is exactly what I found with this pattern when I began to use it as a wallpaper texture on one of my 3D decorating sets.

Back at the drawing board, as it were, I had to either scrap this design or make radically changes and I decided to experiment with different background colours to see if it was possible to create something that would look acceptable. The result is to turn this from a rather bland pattern with a strong motif to a strong motif and a strong background colour which I found worked well as a wall covering for a feature wall in my mid-century living room set.

This is now a bold pattern and designed for a contemporary, no-nonsense room where colour and dimension are important. Obviously, you could not use this on all of the walls in the room but I thought that this would look eye-catching and make the room very much alive giving it a look that would be suitable for either a modern interior or a mid-century modern look.

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.
