This Monday morning I got stuck in a pattern bonanza over at interiör 1900. I'm very drawn to patterns and pattern making, it's something I'd like to get into more, I find it interesting and tricky. I took a pattern design course and I'm slightly looking for a pattern program. But how can I fit that into all the other ideas?
Lately I've been very much into muted pastels, unlike before when a good gold, black and white combo or a leopard pattern would do it. (Who am I kidding - it still does. Especially if the leopard pattern should happen to be in gold, black and white.)
I like the flatness and repetitiveness of these, that they look so hand drawn - and yeah, I like that they look kinda... boring actually. They are so mild and comforting, they would fit a kitchen wall or the surface of a kitchen table perhaps. They are all from the 50's and 60's:
Then there's the surreal 60's and 70's. I think these samples look positively edible. The first one could fit a bedroom, the second a living room perhaps? I really like the almost 50's:y colours.
Alright. Enough. I'm off to tend to my business.
