More Pictures from Yesterday’s Rifle Paper Installation : Centering the Pattern

November 19, 2022
You don’t see it right away when you’re close, but when you stand back and view a larger expanse of paper on the wall , OR pull the pattern up on your phone, it’s evident that this pattern has a strong central image (the red roses in a circle ) , as well as a secondary image , which is the heart-shaped blue green leaves .
Here I’ve centered the ring of roses in between the two medicine cabinets , as well as between the light sconces.
This makes for a pleasing look of symmetry in this master bathroom .
Something that most people would not even notice concretely . But there would still be a feeling of equality and balance as you spend time in this bathroom .

I tweaked things a bit, to make this scheme work. Then I got the design centered on the wall seen to the left in this photo . The pattern also landed pretty near centered over the door .
Additionally, I love the way it looks, peering from one room into the other , all nicely lined up .
But ” balancing the pattern ” is much more than futzing with the vertical elements. For instance, there are also horizontal motifs to consider.
With this “Wildwood” wallpaper pattern , I wanted to place the red flower “circles / hayloes ” where they would be evenly distributed ” ) .
So, as you can see, I have “balanced” those red circles (three of them) evenly between the ceiling and the wainscoting.
In addition, the homeowner worked hard to find a fun and fresh wallpaper pattern that included colors that worked well with the glossy murky blue tile and chairrail .
This design is called Wildwood and is from York (the company who makes Rifle Paper material ).
