Two Different Numbers, Two Different Colorways


This homeowner bought her wallpaper before I came out to measure.  Like many, she bought too little.  I told her to order another double roll bolt, and to be sure it was from the same run, so it would be the same exact color as the paper she already had.

When the paper came in, she checked the run numbers, and they were all the same. Too bad she didn’t also check the pattern numbers.  That one last digit on the end makes the difference between the blue background and the orange background.

Since I couldn’t use the bolt with the orange background, we didn’t have that extra double material that I wanted.  I did a lot of math and plotting and figuring how to get an extra strip out the bolts, and to still have enough for the fur downs and under the vanity.

In the end, I got ‘er done.  Do a Search on the words “koi pond” to see pics.
