A cold and unfriendly 1960s wallpaper

A cold and unfriendly 1960s wallpaper

What an uninviting and cold, cold wall covering we have today covering the walls of the 1960s living room and making us all feel blue.

This is a lovely design that takes for its inspiration the designs of the late 1950s, early 1960s and uses contemporary colours from the British Standard colour palette.

However, I chose to make the background blue and that has transformed the room from a warm and inviting living area to a cold and unfriendly front room. Well, that is what current thinking would have you infer but I am not so sure. I feel that the room looks clean and tidy, large and inviting. The radio is on in a corner, and outside it is warm and pleasant and there is the sound and smell of dinner being prepared away in the kitchen. Perhaps this is a friendly room after all but, try as I might, can I convince myself?

For comparison, I have done the same paper in a warmer brown and I will post this tomorrow and you can judge which room you prefer the most for yourself.
