Mid-century inspired 3D texture

1950’s Light Blue Wallpaper Swatch

There was a trend in the 1950s in the United Kingdom for producing patterns, many of which were intended as wallpaper, and which used a small motif regularly repeated.

As the decades wore on, this trend continued but the motifs began to get larger until we arrive at the 1970s and the decade of excess when motifs were the size of dinner plates and populated every wall of the house.

In preparation for a 1950s set, this is a simple wall covering using a small, regularly repeated pattern in restrained mid-century colours. This pattern does not follow any particular design thread but is, I believe, typical of the patterns produced during that period.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns on my fabulous and ever-growing Flickr page which is here.
