Quiet Bedroom Wallpaper Swatch

Wall covering is an important part of a room since it helps the house owner set the atmosphere and the ambience the way that they want. Sometimes a statement wall covering is what is required but sometimes the walls need to be quiet and restful and designed not to intrude on the peace of the occupant.

This pattern is based on mid-century motifs and colours but is intended to be just an interesting and colourful wall leaving the house owner to add whatever furnishings they like. I saw this wallpaper as ideal for a bedroom since it is restful and yet not dull and uneventful.

I created this wallcovering design some time back and this is but one of several incarnations that the pattern has been through – a previous design is shown as the swatch. According to my notes, this variation has a background which looks like mellow buff while the motif colours are from the mid-century palette and are listed as porcelain blue and moss green for the stroke and then for the motifs orange, moss green, chartreuse and poppy red.

The swatch uses the same motif colours but has a chocolate background and the design is slightly different in that one column is raised half a unit.

The pattern is created so that the lines of the motifs do not, looked at on a complete wall, appear regimented and completely straight. This prevents the pattern from appearing boring and creates a more restful and interesting (and deliberately jumbled) look.

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
