The striped wallpaper covers the totality of a rectangular wall; at the two upper corners on both the right and the left side, an isosceles triangle of one meter per side is cut out and pasted, reverse side showing, on the two adjacent walls, leaving bare the now empty space on the main wall.

The alternating colored and white striped pattern of the wallpaper can be discerned faintly through the surface of the two triangles pasted up back side out.
