Squares And Walls

One of the problems using solid colours in a house is that the rooms either tend to close in on you or they expand ever outwards creating rooms that appear to have no end.

This particular room uses a mid-century inspired wallpaper that has a square pattern – or rather two square patterns – that give the wall a dimension and definite shape. Not only that, the squares also help to show the size of the room and floor area by making one of the walls appear precise and solid.

The pattern for this wallpaper is based on various mid-century patterns that appeared in the UK in the 1960s and uses colours from that era which go well today with modern furnishings and with modern rooms. I have shown the wallpaper as being used on one wall only which is one of the limits of having to use a set rather than physically decorating a real room but it would be quite possible to use this paper on more walls although using it on all of the walls may require some planning first.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of all these images and more on our Flickr page which is here.
