All Walls Now

aff131 1200This is the wallpaper that I featured recently which I am now showing you on all the walls in this room as opposed to using the paper just on a feature wall.

This design lends itself well to covering all of the walls and I thought it would be a good exercise to create a pattern that was not intended to use as a feature.

The room looks like a new room but in fact it is an old set that I have used before which has been renovated. The camera position is also back at the doorway of the fourth wall in order that you can see the whole of the room. As you will see it is the sort of room that you would find in a modern apartment probably anywhere in Europe.

Wallpaper On The Wall

This is the pattern from yesterday now as wallpaperThis is the pattern from yesterday where I have changed the background colour. Originally the background was blue but I realised, as I created the image from my 3D set, that blue walls would have the effect of making the room feel cold and a little unpleasant. The obvious answer was to use a warmer colour and this I have done.

I did say yesterday that this design had a way to it which was not apparent looking at a small swatch. If you look at the picture you cannot help but see that the design has lines running horizontally along the wall that take the eye down the length of the hall. If you look at the wall above the door out of the hall into the lobby behind you will see that, on a small area of wall, the direction is not so clear.

Easy Bedroom Wallpaper

aff322 43affr322_1200This is an easy pattern, that is it is a pattern that is simple, does not contain a lot of contrast and is not intended to take the eye, but is intended to replace a plain painted wall.

In this room I have used the wallpaper to provide a backdrop against the bed and to show the contrast with the window wall which is just painted and which uses the curtains to provide colour and interest.

It would, of course, be possible to use this paper on all the walls although the overall effect might be a little stifling and so, although not a feature wallpaper, it is probably better to leave one of the walls at least in a plain colour. The pattern is also one of my collection of circular pattern which I have mentioned before.

Orange And Lime Wallcovering

Orange and lime wallpaperI have already shown you this pattern in a post a few days ago but then it was just a pattern. At that time I was working on my modern apartment living room to, hopefully, make it look a little better, a little more realistic and perhaps also a little more feature-rich.

I have already described the pattern in that previous post but, briefly, it uses shapes taken from the mid-century in the United Kingdom and also earlier shapes but uses them in a way, I hope, that will appear modern.

Although it would not be beyond the realms of possibility to use the paper on all the walls, it was really designed for use as a feature wall. In this apartment the other walls are painted plain so this wall is the wall that a visitor would see on entering the room with, immediately to their left, the view out of the large window.

One of the images used as a picture is called ‘Oarsmen at Chatou’ by Auguste Renoir and the other image, which appears larger in the detail on my Flickr page, is by Giovanni Cariani and titled ‘A Concert’.

That job has now been completed and I can paper the walls with the orange and lime wallpaper and you can see the result above. If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and also a large detailed image of just the paper on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.

Simple Flowers Wallpaper Design

Simple Flowers Wallpaper Surface PatternThis is the simple flowers wallpaper design which I had intended to bring to you firmly plastered to a wall but, unfortunately, machine problems have meant that it will take a little longer for my 3D machine to be up and working.

However, in common with my recent posts, this does give you the opportunity to see the pattern as a design before it is applied as wallpaper. It is a simple pattern and I have to be honest I do like simple designs with a fast repeat. I had intended this to be at a smaller scale although I have a feeling that it is going to look better at this size once it is put on a wall.

These patterns are not knock-you-out patterns that are intended for a feature wall but are designed for all the walls or, as would perhaps look better, several walls leaving one or perhaps two for either feature or plain covering.

Orange And Lime Wallpaper

Mid-century inspired wallpaper patternIt’s very easy to look at patterns today that represent the 1950s, 60s and 70s and yet these are just a small subset of the designs that were produced. In fact, in exactly the same way that it happens today, patterns followed a variety of routes, some were very new, inspired by emerging art trends, while some were much more traditional and took for their inspiration to designs of previous decades.

This pattern uses much older elements, although I have tried to make the shapes look both modern in an up-to-date sense and modern meaning that they would not look out of place in the mid-century decades in the United Kingdom.

The pattern is a mixture of elements which I hope is unified by the colour scheme which is partly mid-century and partly up-to-date. I am trying to create what I hope will be a wallcovering suitable for a modern room. There is little contrast between the colours and they all flow together which means that this wallpaper could do all the walls rather than just a feature wall.

Pink Bedroom Wallpaper

Pink wallpaperPink wallpaperYesterday’s wallpaper was a nice example of how a bold and colourful wallpaper can exist on a feature wall in a bedroom and look so much nicer than painted walls.

Today, this particular design is in pink and is intended to give the room a bold and busy look and why not? Bedrooms these days are used as study or fun or additional sitting rooms and maybe should be decorated as such. In particular, I tried not to make this room a pastel pink candy sort of room.

The pattern you see is a bold one and is part of my collection of circle patterns that I mentioned recently. It is not intended to be used on a small-scale and I thought when creating it, that it would work well on a feature wall.

The picture on the wall, if you are interested, is titled ‘The Brown Family’ and was painted in 1869 by Eastman Johnson, an American artist.
