Dressing Walls in Grasscloth
I grew up in a home that had wallpaper in every room. I remember as a young girl how excited I was to go to the wallpaper store to pick out a new design for my room. I did what any girl in the 80’s would do- I picked a graphic floral pattern on a mauve background. It looked so cute on the 8 x 10 sample card. Then we put it up on the walls- yeah, not so good.
It took twenty two years before I would consider wallpaper again, and it was only appropriate that the wallpaper company that I stumbled upon was called twenty2. It was love at first sight when I saw their grasscloth in neptune; the soft aqua tones paired with the raw jute texture was a combination I couldn’t pass up. I was able to get a sample, and I carried that swatch around with me for two months as I picked out the rest of the surface materials for our kitchen.
It’s been two years since the grasscloth wallpaper was installed in our kitchen, and I still love it just as much as I did the first time I saw it. It’s durable, it’s classic, and it’s here to stay for many more years to come. Now to get moving on my next venture with the walls: decals.
