Blue Bedroom Wallpaper

Blue wallpaper for a bedroomThis is a design which was made as wallpaper and was intended to be used in this room. The room is an old room that I created but one which I have updated and made to look a little nicer. It is intended to be a very conventional bedroom in a modern house.

The design uses some mid-century elements but I wanted it to be modern in its look and this is reflected by the relatively large-scale that I have used. This is not intended to be a wallcovering that is applied to all the walls but it is one which would go nicely, I felt, on a feature wall such as the wall behind the bed head. The point being that the house owner (and a visitor) see this wall on entering, but once the bed is in use the occupant is looking away from the wall and towards the camera. The walls then in vision would be plain and probably painted.

Paint this wall behind the bed, however, and you immediately create a space resembling the inside of the box, particularly in a modern room which has few embellishments or decoration to catch the eye.

Upmarket Walpaper Aff313

Upmarket wallpaper design in an upmarket roomThis was the formal wallpaper pattern that I created some time back and posted here a few days ago with the promise that I would show the wallpaper on the walls of a new room that I was then modelling.

Well, the new room is finished and you can see the result above with the formal wallpaper applied to the walls. It is an upmarket room as you can see and the wallpaper design is intended to match the style of the room and also the intended use of the room as a somewhat restrained lounge in a rather big house.

This is an interesting exercise because, having completed this, I am immediately thinking how this room would look with perhaps more modern and forward thinking owners. There is always a tendency to create rooms which reflect one’s own ideas. Perhaps it may be more interesting for me to come out of my comfort zone and create a much more modern room with a more modern wallcovering and so this will be a project that I will mark forward to do over the next few days.

In the interim, however, I am pleased with the way that this room has turned out and with the design that I have created which I think compliments the use of the room and creates the look that I wanted

Design Aff314

A pattern design for fabric or wallpaperI’m creating a collection of patterns designed primarily for covering walls which are composed, to one extent or another, with circles or discs and it goes by the catchy title of Disc Project one.

This is yet another disc-based design which was intended as wallcovering although I have to say that I quite like the look of the pattern and I might experiment with using it as fabric rather than paper.

The design is not a complex one and does bear some resemblance to designs produced in the 1970s and, although the colouring is different, it is quite similar in hue. As you can see there is considerable contrast between the background and the colours which helps to make this look bold and bright. In fact, it may well be that I shall change the background to soften the image slightly if I intend to use it as wallcovering. I’m in the process of turning the room which you have already seen as a dining room into a lounge and this is earmarked as a suitable pattern for use on the walls

Fabric Becomes Paper

Wallpaperaff310 swatch.jpgYes, you are right, you have seen this design before but on that occasion it had been optimised and altered slightly in order to produce a pattern that was suitable for fabric and I showed it as a swatch. This is the same design only this time it is optimised for wallpaper.

On this occasion I have papered a wall in a very modern luxury apartment overlooking the sea. You can only see part of the room, but you can imagine its dimensions from the image. The remaining walls are painted in a light colour and this wall was painted the same colour.

However, the wallpaper covers just this one wall and, since this is not interior design, I have chosen an image which shows the extent of the wallpaper and the join between the papered wall and the adjoining wall which contains the window. The lighting in the room is modelled to be natural and to be just daylight and a muted sun.

With a painted wall the room looks smaller and quite boring resembling perhaps the interior of the garage. Add the paper and suddenly the room becomes alive and looks the way that you see it now.

Formal Wallpaper Design

Formal surface pattern for wallpaperI am trying to produce some perhaps more formal and structured work while still staying true to the ideas and the aspirations of the mid-20th century. At the same time, of course, I also want to produce patterns that have some relevance today.

This design is for a formal room, perhaps similar to the room that I have made recently, and looks back in its elements and to an extent in its colours to an earlier period in British design when things were much simpler. This gives me the chance to use traditional elements in a more traditional way without simplifying them and also to use colour in a different way.

I am in the process of building a new room which is a little more formal and a little more interesting and hopefully this should be finished next week which will give me the chance to apply this as wallpaper.

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.

Aff311 Another Wallpaper

Classic pattern wallpaperThis is another wallpaper pattern for the new room which I am creating but, although you have seen some images, it is still in the process of being completed. It was my intention to prepare a few new patterns for the walls to make a start, so this, at least, is on schedule. As you have probably realised the room is a dining room in an upmarket house.

The wallpaper that I have designed so far is part of a collection which I am putting together for 2018 which comprises, for the most part, elements within circles. The main element in this design is not a circle but a shell although the overall look of the paper is very similar and so I am considering including this in my 2018 collection.

I had hoped that the room would be finished by today, ready for the new week, but there is still some work to do on the lighting and on the render settings and, as always seems to happen, this is going to take a little bit longer than I first thought. However, on the credit side, the wallpaper is finished and ready to be pasted.
