Contest Entry: “Reimagined Damask Wallpaper” Design Challenge

For this most recent “Reimagined Damask Wallpaper” challenge, I may have gone in a different direction than most. My design is meant to be a more modern, pared down version of a traditional damask design. While using a typical diamond layout and flower motif, I spruced up the colors a little and transformed the standard symmetry into a-symmetry. The complicated scrollwork of old style damask designs was toned down considerably. To make things more interesting, geometric patterning was added to the background and some areas of the flower and leaves. Hope you enjoy this very jumbo scale design – suitable for the larger home decor items such as wallpaper, sheets, curtains and duvet covers.

Here are some of my favorite home decor uses for “Big Mod Flowers with Patterning“, and please note, this one is a very large and highly directional design, so maybe not the best choice for tabletop, throw pillows or other smaller items:

The design is first and foremost for wallpaper, so here’s how “Big Mod Flowers with Patterning” will look on that item – detailed (left) to overall view:

And now, the fabric views – test swatch, fat quarter, and yard:

Finally, below is a Pinterest pin-able version, which can be used with the “Pinterest Save Button” browser add-on. (I use mine with Firefox.) Another option might be to follow me on Pinterest.
