Wall Art 1960s Pattern Prints

The 1960s in the United Kingdom produced some outstanding design which went on to influence to some great extent future decades in all corners of the world.

I always felt that the patterns themselves would make good wall art since they are colourful, good to look at and have an emotive appeal reminiscent of the period.

Here, two of my 1960’s influenced patterns are shown as they would look as wall art shown side by side. I have deliberately not given too much idea of size since this can be a personal choice so the pictures could be small images or they could, perhaps, be larger. Both patterns are mid-century inspired and both use colours from the mid-century palette that was in use at the time.

One thing I have always wanted to do is to turn my mid-century designed patterns into some form of wall art destined to grace the living room of either a mid-century inspired room or a modern room.

I have done several of these before but not, it seems, very recently and so I decided to create a pattern that is just for a picture. This design is sort of mid-century and it certainly uses mid-century colours as you will see below. In essence, it is a repeated pattern that is surrounded by background which I always think makes the pattern stand out better than it does, say, then used as a wall covering.

I have the advantage of a slight skill in using 3D and so I can also show you how the image would look as a framed art print on a wall using one of my simple sets. I think this is a great way to show off patterns and, as far as I can tell, I seem to be the only one who uses this technique!

As promised I have looked back to find the colours used and the background is magnolia (yes, I expect you knew that!). The motif colours are used in pairs and they are: eddystone and brass, midnight blue and castle grey, bottle green and lovely nightshade and finally Post Office red and middle brown.
