Custom Wallpaper Design: Spirograph-Inspired Designs
One of my favorite toys growing up was Hasbro's Spirograph. If for some reason you are unfamiliar with Spirograph, it is a toy that uses pens and gears with a mathematical basis to create circular, looping curves. Officially these mathematical shapes are called hypotrochoids, but with the ability to create infinite shapes and patterns with a multitude of colored pens, I always just called it fun. Using this nostalgic reference to the toys of childhood as our reference point, we present to you a unique wallpaper pattern that harkens back to those hours spent hunched over the Spirograph.
Shown in black and white to coordinante with our inspiration room, this graphic wallpaper features undulating circles of hypotrochid shapes in various sizes. The oversized pattern gives the custom wallpaper a mural-like effect with it's bold presence, but recedes enough into the background so as not to completely dominate the room's decor. A custom wallpaper design that combines nostalgic elements with high design is a winner in our book; what nostalgic inspiration would you use to create a custom wallpaper pattern?
