Aff540 Pattern

When I first had the idea of creating patterns that I call Belle Epoque 2 I had the feeling that they would, in addition to having a fast repeat and a small-scale, be relatively complex in the motifs that are used. In the event, I now realise, my patterns, although following my ideas, our less complex than I had at first visualised and, to an extent, more open in their layout that I had intended.

Of course, it is difficult to suddenly change the way that one works although I intend to try and do this with future patterns but this design demonstrates very well, I think, where I am in the design process at the moment. It is a small motif at a relatively small-scale although the result is to produce something that is quite open and does not have the contrasting colour but I had hoped would be a feature of my new Belle Epoque 2.

However, the pattern is created and I want you to be able to see it and so I have created this swatch and I will use this for soft furnishing and perhaps try and think about what I have said above to help steer me in my future surface pattern designs.

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.
