Aff448 Wallpaper Idea

One of the big advantages of using 3D models in order to show how a pattern would look when actually used on a product is that you can see immediately where you need to make changes.

This design went well as wallpaper but it looked very lonely with so much separation between the motifs. That is, it looked good, I thought, as a pattern but once I had used it as a texture on the walls in this room it became obvious that it did not look the way that I wanted.

I amended the pattern by adding in some simple mid-century style lines in order to fill out the pattern and make it look a little more unified on the wall. I also changed the background colour to Yaffle Green (yaffle is the old name in the UK for a woodpecker), a mid-century colour from the British Standard in use at the time.

Having now produced the final image, I am now happy that the wallcovering looks the way that I wanted which is a mid-century, 1950s look but brought completely up-to-date and suitable for a modern room today.

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.
