Lately I seem to be seeing grasscloth wallpaper a lot more in design magazines and all over HGTV. Candice Olson seems to be a big fan of bringing it back into style, since I've recently seen her use it on two separate shows (she even has her own line of wallpaper, with some grasscloth options).
But I can't say I'm a huge fan of it myself. I don't mind the look of it (although I think I might get tired of it relatively quickly on my walls), but all I can think about when I see it is how much dust it will collect. As someone with asthma, I'd definitely think twice before putting something with that much texture up on my walls.
However, one place I really like the use of grasscloth is in picture matting! You can still get the textured look, but in a smaller, more manageable dose. And the best part is that it's covered by the glass in the picture frame, so you don't have to worry about all of that dust.
Have a look for yourself, with these pieces I just hung up in our downstairs bathroom.
I'm loving the organic feel the textured wallpaper matting gives off, and it goes well with the rattan accessories in the bathroom as well.
Plus, the soft green color goes great with our guest towels.
What are your thoughts on grasscloth wallpaper? Would you commit to putting it up on the walls of your home? Or maybe only on an accent wall? Got any more creative uses for it, that might minimize how much dust it collects?
