THE HANG®: Make Me a Match

When it comes to decorating a room, the wallcovering plays a vital role in setting the tone and creating a visually stunning space. There's nothing more distracting than mismatched patterns, which can undermine the overall aesthetic appeal.

Phillip Jeffries aims to make the installation process faster, easier, and more fun for both the designer and installer. We want to help you avoid common pitfalls during installation. Our new how-to video series, The Hang® will teach you the best practices and tips for making your next project picture-perfect! Today, we'll tackle one of the key elements to consider when using patterned wallcoverings and how to ensure a harmonious look when hanging textures like thick grasscloth with a pattern.

Pro Tip: Matching
Let's join Phillip Jeffries President, Philip Bershad, and master installer, Dennis Delpome, as they outline how to easily match wallcovering. Watch the video now: 


Where To Match Wallcovering
Dennis advises matching the pattern at eye level. This crucial point is typically located halfway down an average 8-foot wall. By focusing on achieving a perfect pattern match at this eye-catching level, you can effortlessly create a flawless and cohesive look that will captivate anyone who enters the room.

Imagine walking into a room where the eye is immediately drawn to a beautifully matched pattern at eye level. The symmetry and attention to detail instantly create a sense of harmony and sophistication. Whether it's a bold and vibrant floral design or an intricate geometric pattern, ensuring the pattern aligns seamlessly will elevate the entire space.


PJ's #1 Must-Know Tip: Match Wallcovering Patterns At Eye Level
Matching the pattern at eye level is especially important in rooms with high ceilings, as it helps to ground the space and create a focal point at a comfortable viewing level. By strategically placing the perfect pattern match where the eye is naturally drawn to first, you can create a sense of balance and visual appeal that will leave a lasting impression.


How To Avoid Mismatched Wallcovering
Consider the impact of a mismatched pattern between two panels. It can disrupt the flow and harmony of the entire room, drawing attention away from the intended statement. By implementing Delpome's expert advice, you can avoid this pitfall and create a room that exudes elegance and sophistication.

So, the next time you're considering adding patterned wallcoverings to your space, remember the importance of matching the pattern at eye level. Take the time to ensure a flawless match where the eye is naturally drawn to first. This attention to detail will not only enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the room but also showcase your impeccable taste and meticulous approach to design.
