Green Non-Floral

aff317 43.jpgThis is a very simple, very ordinary, vector pattern that uses for its inspiration mid-century designs although the colours are intended to be more modern.

I have always liked making patterns with small elements which are repeated and I like to see a pattern like this reduced in scale because there is something about the endless-seeming repeat that I find attractive. Reducing patterns to a small-scale was very much the way that patterns were created and used at the beginning of the 20th century although, since the 1950s, there has been a trend to show patterns larger.

This is part of the fashion to create design which is different and in a way contrary to accepted ways. There is nothing wrong with this and, of course, I do it myself but it is also nice to look back and re-evaluate the way that patterns are created and shown. This is so particularly because, in the fullness of time, fashions will reverse and patterns like this will be considered ‘new’ again.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors and my interior 3D work on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
