I love paint’s ability to completely transform a space with a new hue, and patterned wallpaper is equally divine for bringing the wow factor into your home. For me, grasscloth wallpaper is the love story between both, with the added bonus of texture!
Grasscloth wallpaper is available in various neutrals, in colors, and even metallic sheens. Chocolate brown grasscloth wallpaper envelops this luxurious bedroom where rich contrast is played up between equal parts of light and dark.
Grasscloth wallpaper is also available in variegated shades which incorporate fibers of different colors into the woven pattern.
And how pretty is looks when used like a wainscot wall treatment with a chair rail or molding used to border the top.
Installing grasscloth wallpaper is challenging and hiring a professional is recommended for precise application. Grasscloth is surprisingly heavy so it requires extra adhesive! But being the incurable do-it-yourselfer that I am I attempted installation myself a few years ago with an unconventional technique, but three years later (after some recent furnishing upgrades) I’m still loving it!
One must be prepared for the subtle but visible lines that appear between the panels, but the texture of grasscloth wallpaper is always warm and inviting.
Grasscloth is just as versatile as patterned wallpaper, filling spaces all around the home with chic style, from the dining room to the bathroom.
Here are some sources for rolls of grasscloth when shopping for your home:
