Can pattern be plain? Yes, in a way. If the idea of plain painted walls doesn't appeal but neither does an elaborate involved pattern, then geometric pattern is a good middle ground. You can make it bold with contrasting colours or you can make it very subtle with tonal colours. This is MD21 Herringbone from our Modern Design range. It is a play upon parquet flooring. As with all our Modern Design stencils, it comes in 4 sizes. With each size not only does the size increase but also the scale. This is the medium size. Somehow it does have the effect of sitting in the background even if it is quite a heavy pattern. But the tone on tone choice of colour helps that. Even better, it is neutral in style as well so you can furnish and accessorise the space in any way you like and they will all look good against this background. There are other similar style neutral geometrics in the Modern Design range.
