Very Mid-Century Living Room Wallpaper

sketch14_03_3d_800

Is it possible to use the Java Processing toolkit to make a wallpaper designed in a mid-century style?

You bet it is! I created this design using mid-century colours and an overall sense of mid-century style with the intention of using it in my 1960s living room set.

As soon as I had completed the render I was surprised at how authentic and realistic it looked and after some tweaking to the curtains I was able to produce the image shown above. Although not inspired by any particular patterning I’m sure that this is reminiscent of a mid-century designed interior and I have to admit to being pleased with the result.

The mid-century in the UK was a time of considerable experimentation with the use of patterns although, interestingly, colours seem to have remained, at least for the first half, more or less consistent with the colours that had been used earlier. The pattern in this design is a complex one but overall the final result is one that is, I think, pleasing and suitable for a busy family living room.

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