Aff426 Kitchen Wallpaper

This was intended as wallpaper for a modern kitchen but which uses designs that are mid-century inspired although they are intended and designed for use in a room today.

An interesting feature of the 1950s and 60s was the use of ‘washable’ wallpaper, which was a vinyl wall covering that could be sponged or wiped clean. This was, to far as I know, the first time that wallpaper such as this had been offered for sale and it was, naturally, used extensively in kitchens, bathrooms and other areas look, like playrooms, which were likely to attract stains and similar dirt. A look on the Internet revealed that washable type wallpapers are still very much in existence.

The design, as I have indicated, has its roots in mid-century motifs, and in particular the motifs used in the 1950s. The colouring, too, is very much based on the colours of the 1950s which give the design a clean and fresh look, making it very suitable, I feel, for a modern kitchen diner.

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.
