The making of Mid-Century Modern wallpaper collection

Behind the scenes of the new mid-century modern wallpaper collection


Whenever I start a project, the first thing I like to do is to read and collect information about the project topic. The mid-century time frame is rich with iconic architectural and artistic masterpieces that have left a mark on modern-day culture. For some, the mid-century time associates mostly with geometric shapes, functionality, and The Great Gatsby, but there is also another, more abstract, and bold side to it. In this Mid-Century Modern wallpaper collection, we explore new techniques to create unique, modern wallpaper and wall mural designs that will bring a stylish mid-century vibe to any home interior.

When you think about how to style or redesign your living space, a good, structured plan or mood board can help to see where you are heading and how to get there. While reading what made mid-century so iconic, the signature elements that stood out for me were simple forms, nature influence, industrial-style elements, and bold graphics with strong contrast colors. These elements shape the design concept for this collection.

The next phase of the design process was to put everything on the paper. For me, this is one of the most crucial parts of the creative process, where I can visually see the shapes, textures, and colors - all coming together.

Now here comes the fun part - experimenting with different techniques, tools & colors to create the perfect shapes. For the Mid-Century wallpaper collection, one of the main tools that I used was different types of brushes to achieve unique shapes & textures.

While creating a new pattern, I always keep in mind rules that helps me to achieve the right look. Let your creativity flow but stay focused on the main style. Create one idea with a different type of method. Once you have created something, leave it for a couple of days and inspect it later - this is a great way how to have a fresh look at your work.
