Bright Mid-century Wallpaper

Mid-century Wallpaper

This is a very simple but extremely effective mid-century style wallpaper developed using original colours from the period.

Simple but bold designs like this were often used in the lead up to the organised chaos that was the late 1960s and early 1970s styles of surface patterns. What I like about this design is that it shows up the dimensions and look of the room without (totally) overshadowing it. Yes, it is bright and yes, I agree, it is bold but the overall look in the room is one of summer and excitement and colour which was a feature of the early mid-century. I know I have said this before but much of the rationale behind mid-century design was a reaction to the Second World War and a desire for smart, new, modern design. I have to say it that this is a feature that appears to be lacking in many modern interiors today.

So, like it or loathe it, it is based very firmly on mid-century roots and this room is the way that many rooms would have looked at the time.

The design was made in Adobe Illustrator while the image was prepared in Cinema 4D using a set which I have used often before, my mid-century living room.

You can see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
