1970s wallpaper

1970s wallpaper

We are well and truly in the 1970s now with this eye-catching, highly conspicuous and quite extravagant wallpaper shown here in the mid-century room.

To modern tastes this room looks way over the top but as patterns became more colourful and more riotous they became more acceptable and people enjoyed the change from the often wishy-washy papers of their parents. It was a time of making statements and one way to show that you were a modern family was to have a very modern wallpaper.

Once again I have shown the wallpaper on one wall only because to show it on both would be far too overpowering for modern day taste although, at the time, often the design was used on all four walls – wow!

I have to admit that I quite like this pattern and, using perhaps more modern and restrained colours, it would make a pleasant wallpaper for a feature wall in a modern house of today.

This design was created in Xara Designer 9 and the image was made with Cinema 4D using my own mid-century room
