Parents Mid-Century Wallpaper

An interesting title, perhaps, but when I created this it was in response to several wallpaper designs from the 1950s that I knew would be the sort of designs that parents choose.

It is also, of course, the type of restful and non-confrontational design that many house owners of the time could have chosen because of its simplicity and its charm. The pattern is a classic idea using mid-century colours, although the motifs are my own (in fact, they are more modern on reflection than I intended). The overall look is perhaps a little stately but also a lot restful and I always think that this style of pattern makes the rooms look higher and airier.

The effect, in this 1950s dining room, is graceful and more than a little alluring. To be honest, it is the sort of look that does even today appeal to me.

If you would like to see larger versions of these designs and my other work then you can do so on my Flickr page, a link to which is here
