Here’s What Happens When You Hang a Geometric Pattern on Walls That Are Not Plumb / Square

Digital ImageHere we are, turning a corner in a powder room in the Montrose neighborhood. The walls were out of plumb; off by more than half an inch from the top to the bottom – with a bulge in the center, to boot!

In this kind of situation, with crooked walls and a very regimented wallpaper pattern, there is no way you can avoid or hide the resulting mismatch.

Luckily, this only happened once in this room. The opposite corner was nicely plumb, and the piece on the next wall matched perfectly.

It’s a busy enough pattern that one might not even notice the mis-matched design in this one corner.

The pattern is by Antonia Vella, for York Wallcoverings
