Currently Obsessed: Grasscloth

{ A Shot from the ELLE DÉCOR Feature on Fashion Designer, Francisco Costa’s Stunning New York Apartment }

Grasscloth has been on my radar for a good while now, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since seeing it in the lobby of my hotel during a week’s stay in New York(see the last photo in this post) as well as in my boss’ office nearly everyday. Grasscloth is a great way to add both color and texture to a space. It adds instant warmth, depth, and a touch of luxury. I am dying to use grasscloth in my own home and am thinking it would look best in my foyer and my formal living room and dining room which open onto each other. Do you have grasscloth in your home? Would you recommend having it hung by a professional? What is your favorite application for grasscloth?

Love this and love grass cloth. I have it in my powder room and dining room and kitchen! Definitely get it hung professionally and by somebody good. This is tricky stuff and it can easily look like a handyman special without somebody who knows what they are doing. What can you tell me about the Hamptons blue bedroom. esp the wall covering and carpet. Thanks. Really enjoy the blog but not getting much work done.
