Dark Wallpaper At Dusk Swatch

This was fun to do, I wanted to take a ‘normal’ mid-century inspired wall covering pattern with just a simple design of flowers and turn it into something that would suit my modern dining room at dusk.

The pattern is a leaf on a magnolia background which is the way that I usually begin designs. I did try it on the wall of the modern dining area and it looked nice. However, it occurred to me that I always show rooms like this at daytime with plenty of light from the windows and using strategically placed sunshine. Perhaps I should remember that rooms are not always like this, sometimes they are dark when the daylight begins to fail and cool, fresh air filters in through from the garden.

I therefore experimented with chocolate, magnolia and Minerva grey to produce this alternative design. I now like the look of this room a lot, it looks much more sophisticated and interesting and has now become an alternative set.

Also note that the chair backs use, as promised, another version of the pattern that I posted last, which is the design implemented as a furnishing fabric.

To make life more interesting I have shown the swatch in the original colours the way that it was first designed.

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
