Green Pointy Pattern

I am a little late in showing this pattern as I intended to do it yesterday, Friday, but unfortunately I did not have time and so I am working in the studio on Saturday once again.

This design was a fun one to create and was intended from the outset for curtains although, perhaps, the intention in my mind was to create curtains for a larger room, perhaps a corporate style room. The image above shows a hotel style room with curtains at the window.

The motifs, based as you can see on leaves, are inspired by my research into mid-century motifs, in particular those found in the 1960s in the United Kingdom. The colouring is intended to be mid-century although I have used my extended palette to make the colours are little more saturated than they may perhaps have been at the time, although this is in keeping with the designs produced in the second half of the 1960s decade.

If you wish, 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.

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.

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.
