French Bikes Wallpaper

I wanted to have a wallpaper I liked without trying to do something too ambitious. We’d been making so many vertical stripes with the other assignments, so I wanted to switch it up and use horizontal stripes. I have French heritage, so I decided that this would inform my wallpaper. I went with a sailor shirt pattern. I added some 1950s French bikes to complete the feel. I wanted to switch to a more basic motif, because the bikes don’t really fit into each other very well, but I decided to keep them, but get rid of some of them. The color difference between the wheels and the stripes adds some depth to the wallpaper. I could see myself wearing it, although probably after some minor edits.
