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.

1950s Style Print

No room is complete without some form of art whether it consists of original canvases or perhaps a few simple framed art prints.

I have to be honest, this is one problem I have with so many modern interiors. I like the lines, the flow from one room to another, the simple, minimalistic design but I believe that you need to have some decorative relief to convert the space from a mere architectural area into a room that has beauty and personality.

In order to buy the sort of pictures you like you need, in quite large quantities, both money and time which is why prints provide a timely and inexpensive way to decorate a room. This image is a simple, decorative 1950s framed image which will soon be available as a print to purchase. Of course, I would never suggest that you have just one image which is why this will from part of set of pictures in due course. However, even as a singleton, it has a charm and elegance to make it a desirable addition to any room.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
