Oh, it was definitely the B&Q one! Recognised it straight away.
There was a side match, but only with every other branch, oddly. Also strange was that the pattern, ie the branch, rose 15mm across each drop of paper. Take that across a room and you can imagine.
I take it your suggestion was only if there was no side match with the paper? So really, the only option would be to position the first drop between the branches so as to minimise any “owl loss” into the ceiling?
Just doesn’t make sense that someone would design a wallpaper like that. Saying that, given the price of each roll, about £9 if I remember, it wasn’t actually that bad to hang (I was expecting worse).
While you’re reading, can I ask if you’ve come across “third drop” paper? I did once, though I’d never heard of it before. It looked okay hung to the customers eye, but not quite right to mine. I just couldn’t work out the right method for centring it. Any pointers?
