Monday Musings: Walls of Grasscloth

We have totally been obsessing over grasscloth walls lately! It seems that all shades, purposes and textures have been popping up in the design world and we cannot get enough. There is a certain living room design that we are currently working on that we decided to incorporate the lush texture of the grasscloth on the wall ( Be patient folks, you will see it this week! It may or may not incorporate some coral and some navy. I guess you will have to wait and see) .

I do not know if any of you have had the pleasure of removing grasscloth wallpaper from a wall before, but it is definitely not a task for the weak. I once owned a home that had literally 5 layers of wallpaper to remove before we could get to the actual wall. One of these layers happened to be grasscloth. After World War III ensuing between me and the grasscloth wallpaper, I was convinced I would never, ever again willingly enter into the world of grasscloth. Today, I stand corrected. And for those of you who are wondering who won in the battle of Me vs Grasscloth? I won.

From powder rooms to kitchens, no room seems off limits for this design staple. It adds a certain richness and luxury to an area and we are not thinking about stripping this wall covering from any wall. Well anytime soon that is.

This hue of gray/green is absolutely to die for in this dining room. The accessories are obviously lush but that the texture of the walls completely sets it over the top. The added pop of punchy blue vases are alright in our book.
We could almost see this certain variety of grasscloth in a small powder room, even with that mirror. Absolutely love this in a bedroom and would have never thought to use it in a bedroom. Such delicate and feminine touches really subdue the organic texture of the walls. 
This may come as a surprise to you all but we are in love with this shade of grasscloth. TURQUOISE!! What is not to like? The chandelier? Oh. My. Love it. Want it. Need it. 
Love the juxtaposition of the natural elements of the wall and the glammy glam accessories. We all love an x-bench and anything mercury glass related. This gets an A+.
On to the blue/gray family of grasscloth walls. Regal Beagle my friends. The lamps. The bedding.  The headboard. The furniture.
Navy blue grasscloth dining room. Normally people love to judge a combination of black and navy but this could not be more on point. This chandelier is so old world along with the beautiful marble table.
Kitchen grasscloth? Never seen it before and we want to keep seeing this look repeated! Again with the gorgeous chandeliers!! Loving the femininity of this kitchen.
