A 1950s Style Lounge Wallpaper

United Kingdom wallpaper in the 1950s saw a wealth of new design and innovation which set the scene – and the colours – for the way designs would develop in the decades ahead.

One particular trend (yes, I know I have said this before) was the advent of the small motif and quick repeat which produced, in my opinion, some of the nicest wallpaper designs of the whole mid-century. This design, I hope, mimics those patterns. It is a style which has more or less disappeared and is ready now for a revival.

The motifs are similar to the mid-century motifs used while the colours are genuine mid-century colours so could well have been used for this type of design. The set is my mid-century living room set made in Cinema 4D and I think the colours go well with the furnishings and produce a very mid-century look to the room. For the record the design was made in Xara Designer which makes it easy to produce small motifs – fast repeat patterns.

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