I’ve been in the habit recently of using patterns at quite a big scale so I thought it was time to redress this and make a pattern that is designed to be used small scale with a quick repeat.

This room looks new but it is, in fact, a 3D room I made some years back which I have retextured and (hopefully) made to look like the rooms I create now. It’s an old-fashioned room in an old-fashioned house which resembles a room in a house in which I used to live.

The interior of this room looks quite dark which helps to give it – I feel – more of a proper mid-century look. One nice way of designing wallpaper is to give it a small repeat so that the pattern looks like little dots. This looks nice and it also makes the rooms seem, in some way, more airy and approachable rather than dark and scary. As soon as I created the test image for this room I was surprised at how good it looked and how much like the image I had in my head it seemed.

So far as the colour goes – it’s a sort of rather dark middle brown – it complements the atmosphere I wanted to create well and I have to say that I was rather envious that I can’t create that room where I live today.

If you are interested, according to my notes the colours used are maple, post office red, parakeet, golden brown and fiesta blue.
