Laying Out A Mural

November 23, 2017


You can’t count on the manufacturer putting the parts of a wallpaper mural into the box in the correct order.

Here I have spread the separate strips of the mural out on the floor, to be sure they are arranged in the right sequence, before I take them to the wall.

This mural was unique, because it does have a repeating pattern (as opposed to a landscape or other scene). And the pattern spread over a width wider than the standard 41″ or 54.” Rather than make the installer struggle with extra-wide strips of paper (and shipping the material in a reaaaaly long tube), the manufacturer cut the mural into easily-managed 17.5″ wide strips.

This Madam Butterfly pattern is by Designers Guild, a British brand, is a non-woven material, and was installed with the paste-the-wall method.
