Mid-Century Living Room Wallpaper

Having done some work to, I hope, improve the look of the mid-century living room, I decided it was time to invent a suitable design for a mid-century wall covering.

Wallpapers like this have, so far as I can see, more or less disappeared but they were a very strong feature in mid-century living rooms. Quite where they came from and the idea behind their design appears lost now although, as you can see from the image above, they were a very useful and interesting way of decorating the walls. I have chosen to use a relatively large-scale since I think that this looks better where the smaller scale tended to break the wall up too much and look too ‘bitty’.

As you can also see, I have made some slight alterations to the living room since there were one or two features that I personally did not like, and I have also improved the lighting to make it look more as though there is a central light illuminating the room.

The curtains are a procedural texture and I have simply changed this to a different one provided by Maxon and, after some discussion amongst ourselves, we have changed the colour from brown to pink. The design was created in Adobe Illustrator while Cinema 4D was used with our living room set to produce the render. There was some slight post-production colour alteration but nothing more was necessary.

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