Centering the Pattern

Digital ImageIf a wallpaper has dominant feature to its pattern, I’ll usually try to center it on an important wall – over a sink, behind a buffet, etc.

In this powder room, it made the most sense to center the pattern behind the toilet. This is a little tricky because you can bet that the toilet is never centered on its wall. This one wasn’t, either.

So then what? Do you balance the pattern on the wall, which would make it off-center compared to the toilet? Or do you center it behind the toilet, which means that it will be uneven on either side as it hits the adjoining walls?

I opted to center the pattern behind the toilet. There was a little more of a vase showing on the left side than on the right, but I thought that was relatively unimportant compared to having it line up with the toilet.
