This is one wall entirely covered with striped paper. In the middle of the wall, a square is cut out of the wallpaper, then reversed, the back side now in facing out, and reaffixed so that the colored and white stripes (discreetely visible through the slightly transparent paper) are correctly aligned and follow the same pattern and spacing as the rest of the wallpaper.
