Dark Wallpaper Printed on Dark Stock – WONDERFUL!

Digital Image

On the left is the front side of a dark colored wallpaper, and on the right is the back side (along with the manufacturer’s label). Usually, the back of wallpaper is white, but, as you can see, this dark paper has been printed on a dark substrate.

This is a really good thing, because most wallpapers shrink just a tad as their paste dries, and that can live minute gaps at the seams – and if the backing is white, it can peep out just a tad. When the manufacturer takes the extra step to print it’s dark papers on a dark background, it prevents any white from showing.

This cute pattern is from Waverly, an older, somewhat flowery brand that has been reincarnated (and updated) by York. It is in the SureStrip line, which is designed to strip off the wall easily when it’s time to redecorate. I like this brand a lot.

It was bought at below retail price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. She is great at helping you find just the perfect paper! Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.
