Dark Background Wallpaper Swatch

Dark wallpaper is really only for feature walls or walls that require a different and contrasting look but there are occasions when you can relax this rule a little.

This design and its colouring owes a lot to mid-century and, of course, to the Arts and Crafts movement in vogue at the turn of the 20th century when many fine floral wall coverings were created.

I had been looking recently at a magazine photo of various wallpapers and I was fascinated by the idea of an archway through from one room to another. It gives a good opportunity to experiment with lighting and with the all-important shadows, as well as with wall covering design and seemed just the thing for this wallpaper.

The result is this new 3D set created in Cinema 4D which has an arch from the living area to the dining room. I applied the design to the archway and the final image, I thought, was very sophisticated and upmarket providing a pleasant and unusual look to the two rooms. I have a tendency to over-use sets but this is a set that I will use again from time to time.

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.
