Black Wallpaper

Mid-century Inspired PatternI like using black but, well, it’s a difficult colour to actually use although it’s a fun and fairly easy colour to work with and for creating patterns and designs.

Although it wasn’t used that much mid-century it was still there on the palettes and saw some revival in the riot and chaos of the 1960s and so I though I would create a pattern for the small apartment that you see here. This apartment was created some time ago in Cinema 4D and still looks OK to use as a set.

This design uses mid-century colours magnolia and chocolate for black – since nothing in life is really totally black with pink paint for the walls. The pattern is horizontal stripes to, hopefully, give some width to the small walls and the blackness gives a sense of wow to the room I think – well, that’s what I hoped.

Could I live in a room like this? Yeah, I think so, looking at the finished image on a big monitor it does look the sort of room I could walk into, sit down and enjoy.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
