The “Half Equals a Whole” Mirror Trick

Digital Image
Before I butted this strip of wallpaper up against the mirror, I trimmed some off the edge, so only a half a square would be next to the mirror.

Why? Because when you look at the wall, you see a whole square – because half is on the wall, and half is reflected in the mirror. Clever, huh?

This trick can’t be done every time, but, since I was hanging my first piece at the mirror, I was able to engineer the pattern so you would see a whole motif.

The wallpaper pattern is by Thibaut designs.

    You are insanely clever and meticulous, Julie. Anyone in the Houston area that uses any other paperhanger is nuts. Bravo!
