You Gotta See the Whole Image

I hung this paper by Warner last week:

as an accent wall behind the headboard in a master bedroom.

It’s a beautiful paper, nice to work with, and looked stunning on the wall.

However, I called the homeowners in to look at the paper before I began to put it up… The design had a subtle stripe pattern that most likely was not visible on the small sample shown in the on-line image. Another drawback to buying on-line. I encourage clients to shop in a store, where they can thumb through actual books, feel the paper, see the true color, and look at photos of rooms papered with the various selections.

In this case, the subtle stripe gave the finished wall the appearance of sunlight and shadows playing across the room – it was stunning. The homeowner promised me a photo, and I hope to have it on my website soon.
