This design started out soft, pale, tone on tone. I really liked it. Calm. What I had in mind. Then I thought about how it would look surrounded by colorful patterns. And I went bold. Or at least, bolder.

Sophistication. Luxury. Sleek geometrics. 1920’s interiors were ornate, elegant and glamorous. Interior design had become a recognized profession. Parisian Art Deco was a major influence. Metallics made everything shine, and jewel tones added sparkle.
My first rendition had the detail at every junction of squares. In the second version, I opened it up, to emphasize the diamond formed in the design. I had a hard time choosing between the gold and the indigo diamond for my entry. I prefer the indigo. I think it is stronger. The gold fits the design brief and that is my entry. Voting is open now until the 15th.
Say, it’s only a paper moon Sailing over a cardboard sea But it wouldn’t be make-believe If you believed in me Yes, it’s only a canvas sky Hanging over a muslin tree But it wouldn’t be make-believe If you believed in me

I think this design would work well in many colors. I tried softer tones here. What colors do you think would work? I’d really like to know. I will be adding more variations to my design library. Let me know in the comments. ;o)
