Why Designers LOVE Grasscloth

Basically, it’s magic. Designers explain why.

“A few months ago, I visited a design panel and there was one thing that each designer agreed on—add texture to the walls if you want to create character! This grasscloth’s natural sand color is a huge nod to our coastal region and it reminds me of that every time I see it. It gives me a feeling of comfort and happiness!”
Megan Stokes, Holy City Chic

“Grasscloth wallpaper is a decorator’s secret weapon to take a room from ordinary to extraordinary. I used it in my favorite color – robin’s egg blue – in this bedroom at 33 Main, my luxury lodging destination in the Berkshires.”
Annie Selke, The Annie Selke Companies

“Grasscloth is less of a pattern commitment than wallpaper –but brings way more punch to a room than paint.”
Christina Higham, Sun Soul Style

“Grasscloth is the perfect way to add dimension and texture to a space! I love how warm and inviting it feels.”
Autumn Hachey,  Toronto Designer, Stylist + Creative Director

“Grasscloth is a safe and sophisticated bet when it comes to wallcoverings.”
Sarah Gibson, Room for Tuesday

“I love using grasscloth because it not only adds such an element of sophistication but also interest and tranquility.”

“I love how grasscloth gives a room texture and dimension without being overwhelming. It’s classic and will never go out of style. I recently put it up in my home office and it completely changes the feel of the space. It elevates it in a way that no paint color could do.”
– Julia Dzafic, Lemon Stripes

“I change out my decor a lot, especially my bedding, so I needed a colorful rug and wallpaper that would allow me to change things around it a lot.” So she chose both a rug and wallpaper that reminded her of denim. “Think about it, every shirt can go with your favorite jeans.” 
–Ann Lacouture, Ann Lacouture

“I wanted to keep my walls light and neutral, so you would really focus on all the beautiful textiles in that room, like the painterly bedding and pink linen curtain panels. I did an accent wall of a really textured grasscloth to add a layer of interest and depth to the space without pulling focus from the bedding.”
