Aff527 As Wallpaper

I agree that, with its grey background, the swatch for this pattern may have looked a little drab and perhaps a little uninspiring and this comment has already been made. But this is a case where the pattern, once it is created as a texture and put on a wall, takes on a very different look.

The image above shows the pattern as wallpaper pasted onto two of the walls in this modern apartment building. The window wall, the third wall, is painted with white paint to provide a contrast and to lift and reinforce that area of the room which, because of the doors out onto the patio, is the main natural light source. The fourth wall, which is where the camera is positioned and also contains the door into the room, would use as a wallpaper this pattern as well.

The background uses a mid-century colour called shire grey and in order to make the motif standout, the stroke is dark Admiralty grey rather than being black or perhaps chocolate which is my favourite alternative to black since nothing in life is completely black or completely white. You would have to sit with me in the studio to see this, but the effect is to make the yellow colour, it is actually mid-century brass, glow just a little more as if it has been highlighted.

The furnishings in this room, like so many of my sets, is a little mid-century but this arrangement would, I feel, still look good with more modern furniture.

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.
