Grasscloth Wallpaper

I’m sure it’s not exactly news breaking that wallpaper is back in a big way. It seems like just yesterday, our painting company was spending more time REMOVING wallpaper and retexturing than anything else. Builders loved using wallpaper because it was an easy way to cover flawed walls while adding texture and pattern but as tastes and trends changed, it became very taste specific and eventually, dated. So what’s the trick to selecting a timeless look when using wallpaper?


With origins dating back more than two millennia, grasscloth wallpaper has its roots firmly planted in Asian culture. This all-natural decorative covering is created by weaving together natural fibers and rice paper, and has been used for centuries to provide insulation in homes. However, it wasn’t until the late 1960s and early 1970s that grasscloth wallpaper became popular among Scandinavian and Boho design movements. Even though it had been available since the 1950s, it was only when designers started looking for unique textures and materials that grasscloth truly began to take off.

The trick to a timeless investment is to pick something that has beautiful texture and subtle movement that creates an elegant backdrop to your furniture, art and accessories.

Another spectacular way to use grasscloth is on ceilings especially if you’re creating a costal vibe in your design. It’s a wonderful way to create visual interest without dimisishing a room’s visual space.

Another interesting (and cost effective) way to use it is incorporating it into millwork panels which creates a very classic traditional vibe.

No matter how you chose to use it, grasscloth is an enduring design trend that never goes out of style. It’s been used for centuries and looks just as elegant as it did 2000 years ago which makes it a great investiment if your considering a design element you don’t need to worry about looking dated in a few years. And isn’t that what great interior design is all about?
