Lollypop Wall

aff176_1000Lollypops were a long way from my mind when I created this design but someone remarked that this is what they resembled and after a second look I had to agree.

This is a modern kitchen diner in an upmarket room and this wall covering prevents it from looks uninspiring and bland. The colours – they are from the mid-century palette – give it a pleasing and very modern look , creating a backdrop that. hopefully, looks both satisfying. decorative and in a way, inspiring for the diners.

If you wish then 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.

I know hardly anybody else seems to do this, but I like to do is diversify, for example by creating transport patterns and patterns for furniture coverings.

An important point that seems to be forgotten by many people is that patterns intended for coaches and bus seats need to be designed for that purpose rather than using a general-purpose design. It is for this reason that I try where possible to show how my patterns look on the intended product.

In this case, the product is a sofa and the image is taken from a 3D set made with Cinema 4D. From the outset, this was designed to be a small scale pattern intended to soften and show off the outlines of the sofa and, hopefully, to make it look inviting to both visitors and homeowners alike.

The pattern does bear some resemblance at a large-scale to mid-century patterns created in the 1970 and the colouring is also very close to the mid-century palette, close enough to justify, I feel, the hashtag midcenturyinspired.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns on my fabulous and ever-growing Flickr page which is here.
