Grasscloth wallpaper has been around for some time now but has recently had its moment of glory. I’m not sure if you are watching this series of The Block? I have no time for all the contestant dramas but I will admit to watching the weekly room reveals. Dea and Darren have presented some gorgeous bedrooms using grasscloth wallpaper. The texture and colours they selected give an instant sense of luxe to their bedrooms.
I am a bit biased though. We chose a mid blue colour grasscloth wallpaper when we gave our previous bedroom an update. Of all the little redecorating projects we undertook in that house, the grasscloth made the biggest difference. Our bedroom was on the smaller side and by using a darker colour, I think it gave the room a more luxurious and hotel-like feeling. I used white bedding, window treatments and furnishings which looked crisp against the blue and kept it bright.
I loved it so much that I used a similar colour in our new home.
Grasscloth is versatile and can look great in other spaces such as a study.

Grasscloth doesn’t need to be dark and moody to look great.
