Navy Denim Striped Wallpaper in a Boys’ Shared Bathroom

The original wallpaper in this bathroom, which is shared by two teen aged boys, was a drab, mid-tone grey with little maroon “swoops” on it.  Not much to get excited about there.

The homeowner switched to this denim-look stripe pattern for the boys’ bathroom.  Everyone loves the new, more sophisticated, lighter and brighter look.

Look closely at the second photo.  You will notice that there is one white stripe that is narrower than the others.  The factory had a slight discrepancy during either printing or trimming, and thus the factory edges butted up against one another did not match the pattern correctly.

I didn’t catch this until I had papered most of the room.  By that time, it was too far into the game to make changes to the walls that had already been hung.

But for the remaining walls, which were all 24″ to 72″ in height, I took some extra time and hand-trimmed off the ill-sized stripes, and then trimmed new strips so that the stripes would match up with the aforementioned stripes.  If you are not following this – no worries.  I know what I’m talking about, and I was able to make the stripes on all the subsequent strips match up perfectly.  🙂

This wallpaper is by Designer Wallpapers, and was wonderful to work with.  The interior designer for the job (a whole house!)  is Pamela O’Brien of Pamela Hope Designs, assisted by Joni Karnowski and Danna Smith.
