Large Wallpaper – Small Apartment

Large format wallpaper on a small room so much better than solid colourThe other night someone remarked about using wallpaper that has a large motif in a small apartment. As I happened to have a small apartment – on the computer that is – I thought I would give it a try to show them how effective such a design can be.

The wallpaper that I chose is the design that I showed some time back and which I used on the new large room that I had created. That being so, I thought that this would prove an interesting exercise. The motif is a large one but the wallpaper does not have a lot of contrast between the motif and the background colour. If you use a pattern that has a strong and very colourful motif then the effect can easily look overpowering, I certainly agree with that.

As you can see from the illustration above the exercise was an interesting one and it shows just how good a large format wallpaper can look when applied to the walls of a small apartment. It goes without saying that you only have to look at this to realise how good a patterned wall covering is against using just a solid colour.

I have only used one wall for the paper and kept the wall by the window plain although, after I had completed the render (why is it you always think of these things afterwards) I was sure that I could have put the wallpaper on both walls. If I had done so then I am sure that I would not have produced a heavy or overpowering effect.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors and my interior 3D work on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
