I have been a long time lover of grass cloth wallpaper.  
My sister-in-law put the most gorgeous green grass cloth in the dining room of their first home.  
I think that is when my grass cloth love affair began. 

This first image takes my breath away.

I have wanted to incorporate grass cloth somewhere in our home since day one. 
I originally thought the foyer of our home would be a great place for the grass cloth. 
However, after observing my kids running their dirty little hands 
on the wall each and every time they go up and down the stairs, I started to reconsider. 

I also thought briefly about adding it to the boys' room.  
Unfortunately, I don't think boogers, snot and slime is easy to wipe off of grass cloth. 

I finally decided the best place to add the grass cloth would be in the office.

This office...

I am thinking this color will be perfect.  

Now, I just need to find someone to hang it.  
Perhaps I could sweet talk my mother into coming up for a few days to help me tackle this project.  
I could repay her with a trip to the spa.  Uhmmm, wonder if she's reading this?

Now, onto the important stuff.

  1. Woooo hoo!! I am so excited, Andrea! Thank you so much - I can't wait to try the stencil!!

  2. Andrea, I love grasscloth, too. In a way I would love it added in the powder room above the beadboard, but I know the mister isn't going to hang that, too so I will just paint. I know the blog that I featured at the party this week paid $62 a roll just to have grasscloth hung. They charge extra for it. Ugh.

  3. i've been working on a grasscloth post too! i love that blue your are considering. i'd like to put some gray glasscloth in the master bedroom. i'm hoping for some mama help to hang too.

  4. I can't wait to see it! We have grasscloth in the family room. I was lucky enough to have it when we moved in. We ended up painting it and I love how it looks.

  5. Gorgeous, I too have a love affair with grasscloth! I had a painter do a faux grasscloth in my foyer and it's perfect. That concept may work for your boy's BR and all of the "boogers, snot & slime"...LOL

  6. ooh i can't wait to see it in the office! and yay for lisa! i love her! :)

  7. That grasscloth will look so great in the office! Great pick!

  8. Ooooooh, I'm a smitten kitten for that photo with the blue grasscloth and I think it would be stunning in your office! We have some grasscloth in our basement, and I really do like it. Working my ever-changing color palette down there in order to keep it. :-)

  9. I love grasscloth and the blue is a perfect shade to bring out the color in the rug and to contrast with the perfectly yellow couch.

  10. that's going to look awesome. It picks up the blue in the rug really well. Can't wait to see!

  11. That is breathtaking grasscloth. I am also a lover of grasscloth. So pretty. Such amazing texture. Can't wait to see it hung and hear if it was hard!


I love reading each and every one of your comments!
