Ryelands Part 2 – More And Bigger Changes

The previous two images in this series took a room which was decorated in a modern form with plain white walls and applied wallpaper in order to create a quite different and, I think, engaging look.

I commented in the last post that this room could perhaps be improved by improving the rather anaemic looking patterns that are being used on the cushions, the curtains, the pouffe and the carpet. I admit that the patterns that are used are somewhat unimaginative but they do, in my opinion, represent the sort of patterns that people are using now.

My idea was to create a stronger, bolder design that would bring out the dimensions and shape of the individual objects rather than seeking to camouflage them against a uniform backdrop of colour.

I therefore created five separate patterns (in fact these are Belle Epoque 2 designs that I had previously designed) and applied these to the items above. The result is the image that you see and, to make this clear, I have combined all of the patterns into a composite which you will also see above.

I think, and it is a matter of personal taste, that this room looks infinitely better than the previous two because each of the individual components in the room has a definite and understandable identity. However, I have tried not to make the room look too strong or too bold because I want this to be a room which is also relaxing for the homeowner. But I did want to create a room which would be a statement for the owner and a representation of their own taste and style and thus make the room look unique rather than it simply looking like all the other modern rooms that one sees so often.

I have not created these patterns as fabric or as objects but if anyone would like to use them please send me an e-mail to miket (at) midcenturystyles.com and we will see what can be done.

These images are necessarily quite small but you can see much larger images of this, and my other designs and patterns for interiors, on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
