I adore gray linen and one of my favorite client bedrooms was done in a grayish-taupe grasscloth and everything else in taupe linen. The whole room shimmered at night with the grasscloth slubs. Loved it. XO

yes, it's very popular where I live...a lot of people use it and it s gorgeous - I love this picture, too with all of the black and white frames.

Sigh, me too. So, what is holding you back?!

I don't think I can do it with two small kids who would ruin it in about 5 minutes of the install...

Do it!!

Soo pretty and so forgiving. Great for people who like to move their art around, because it doesn't show the holes!

I just did a gray schumacher grasscloth in my client's powder room and it's the bomb.com.

I thought of you! Some of them have a nice shimmer to them. So pretty.

The Devoted Classicist said...

I am glad people still like grasscloth! It is made from kudzu, an invasive vine that was introduced to Mississippi in the 1930s to control erosion. Please continue to encourage the harvest.

I want me some too. In grey. Actually, in every shade of grey for every room of my house. You aren't alone! Chic Rooms

Mona Thompson said...

I'm so with you. In the Designer House we just did, the only room in the house that didn't need paint or a treatment of any kind was a sunroom that had grasscloth walls. This was a really old house and they were still fabulous!!!

Casa Très Chic said...

I love grasscloth and use it a lot in my projects.

Splendid Willow said...

Me too! Especially a gorgeous metalic one that I once came across. But I need to win the lottery first...

Warm hugs to you Donna and thank you for all your support. You are a gem.

Love them. I particularly like them when they are done part way up the wall like in your photograph.

I use to have grasscloth in the 70s in my home it is a wonderful textural look and it seems to be a quiet addition to a room that makes it warm and cozy!!! I say go for it!! Kathysue

Hi Donna,

I recently got a few rolls of grasscloth at Benjamin Moore at very good price. A place to consider if you don't want to pay too much. Have a great week.
