Have you met, grasscloth wallpaper?

Hello Decor Friends,

Today I wanted to talk to you about grasscloth wallpaper. Some do’s and don’ts, tips and tricks I have learned along the way.

When it comes to “real” grasscloth there are a few things you need to consider before you choose to spend the money for the installation on your walls.


Every roll of grasscloth wallpaper will be different, it has its own distinctive pattern and texture. The fibers will vary in size and shade between rolls (even when bought from the same batch, in the same color and pattern). These inconsistencies are not defects in the product, simply the process of how the paper is made.


The inconsistencies in both texture and color mean that it will be possible to distinguish between each strip of wallpaper when it is on the wall and the seams between strips will also be subtly visible.


Designer Tip

If you prefer strict uniformity, traditional wallpaper may be a safer choice.



Grass cloth is a natural material, so it is porous. In addition to liquids, it absorbs and holds scents. The smell of tobacco and strong food odors, such as fish, cooking fats, spices and fried food, will linger on the walls. You need to take this into consideration.


Kitchen’s and bathrooms are not the ideal candidate for real grasscloth.


Grasscloth is a timeless application and comes in a variety of colors and shades to suit any decor style.

Enjoy these inspirational rooms. Next week I am going to let you know all about “faux” grasscloth and how I am using it in my home.

Bye For Now
