Mid-Century Wallpaper With Processing

One thing I have wanted to do ever since I started using Processing for the second time is to make some realistic mid-century wallpaper since this is what 20th century 3D was designed to do.

Those who have looked at earlier posts will realise that I have used the 1960s set inspired by an old television series to showcase this wallcovering. Technically, of course, the room depicts the mid-1960s although the wallpaper tries to create the impression of a 1950s design. No matter, wallpaper designs in those days tended to last from one decade into the next and if the wallpaper was thought saleable it would be kept on the book. I have tried to create the look of early 1950s design through the use of shape and form and also by using realistic mid-century colours.

Above is a small picture of the room and a swatch of pattern, but you can see larger versions of this, along with a detailed view, and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
