The endurance of mid-century colour and pattern | MidCentury Magazine
Here’s something you don’t get to say every day – I’m published! I wrote a comment piece in the beautiful Issue 08 of MidCentury Magazine on the endurance of mid-century colour and pattern being testament to its allure. There are so many beautiful examples of authentic and recent mid-century designs and at their best these simple, bright pops of colour and pattern bring unexpected positivity and stimulation to our lives – who doesn’t fancy a piece of that?
A huge thank you to Winters Moon for allowing me to share their snap of my article which is accompanied by an image of their reissued Peter Hall ‘Verdure‘ fabric which was originally designed for Heal’s in 1965 (photo on right).
Issue 08 of Midcentury Magazine showcases fascinating articles with beautiful photography. Features include a Grade II listed Span house in Blackheath, a 1966 bungalow on the innovative Scandinavian-inspired Ryde Estate in Hatfield and an interview with contemporary ceramic artist Lubna Chowdhary about the way she uses colour and pattern to enhance public urban spaces. Post-war Modernism in Britain is also explored in an architect-designed playground piece and the archive photographs are just mesmerising! Too much to mention – for £11 you can own this little piece of sunshine yourself! #theyellowone.
