Slight Color Difference

June 4, 2018


Look closely, just to the left of center, and you will see that the strip on the left is slightly darker than the strip on the right. This is called shading, and is because, in this case, the left side of the wallpaper is a slightly darker color than the right side. Therefore, when two strips of paper are butted against each other, the difference in color can be seen.

In this powder / laundry room, with poor lighting and a busy pattern and a relatively mild case of shading, I didn’t consider it bad enough to halt the job and reorder more paper, and so I went ahead and hung the room.

Everyone loves the finished room.

I am probably the only one who can spot this minor color difference.
