Squiggly Green Wallpaper

Mid-century, and earlier, wallpapers tended to be motif based – that is they tended to concentrate on producing a motif rather than the perhaps the more modern method of blending the shapes in with the background.

This particular pattern perhaps owes little in the motif to mid-century design although it does use mid-century colours. The intention is to create a modern pattern that looks more ‘solid’ than conventional.

The setting is my luxury apartment overlooking a rather nice bay and the wallcovering is chosen to fill one wall. Although you are unable to see this, the wall would be the one facing a visitor. At first glance the wall seems to be solid with a little squiggle running diagonally upwards, although closer inspection reveals that the pattern is a little more complex than that. Perhaps, with hindsight, the carpet could reflect the background colour more although overall I think that this is a design which works well in the sort of room for which it is intended.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
