Gorgeous Grasscloth!

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.

  1. gorgeous!!

  2. Love grasscloth. I used one with a silver metallic sheen in a master bedroom that I designed. It adds so much texture and interest to a room. That seafoam green color is gorgeous in the dining room above.

  3. I love grasscloth wallpaper! I first saw it in the bathroom at my little community gym – not exactly somewhere I expected to find style inspiration, but I’ve wanted to use it ever since!

  4. I am truly determined to have one room in our house have grasscloth, and now, more than ever it’s really gonna be the dining room! The first picture is truly inspirational (aside from your gorgeous office too Kate) – thank you!

  5. I absolutely love the dining room with the green grasscloth. I have 2 questions. 1)have you ever tried doing a faux finish grasscloth lookalike?
    2), any idea where to get a mirror similar to the one in that diningroom? I love it!

  6. I would love to know where to get the green and white curtains in the first picture.

  8. Those are some really nice selections. Candice Olson has a a lot of really nice grasscloth patterns in here Inspired Elegance and Dimensional Surfaces books (distributed by York Wallcovering) and Kenneth James has a line called Shangri La Grasscloth that is filled with nothing but natural grasscloth prints.
