Commercial is a different ballgame.

You HAVE to cut patterned paper in the corner. Even if its damn close to perfect, the piece on the overlapping wall would not be perfectly plumb. And, with 12 foot walls like this, the tiny bit off it was threw off the pattern 1/2" an inch toward the bottom.

That's interesting. Hung plenty of matched patterns. Seemed to always (99% of the time?) make it work by stretching or massaging the material in a outta plumb corner. Paper must not have the stretch the commercial goods do or something.

Hbu?

Yes, more residential than commercial. Point is was getting at is that with residential you always rip an inside corner so you can plumb correct as you work onto the next wall.
Impressive pic, btw.
