Dreaming of grasscloth

In the last 18 months, we have slowly painted each room in our house with the exception of our family room and and youngest daughter's bedroom. I originally wanted grasscloth in our TV room but my husband does not like the visible seams across a large area and there is a ton of wall. The family room has 18 foot ceilings so someone else will have to paint it.
Somehow, my little girl's room has just been down on the list.
I have been dreaming of a sweet pale pink room.

Paint will be easiest but grasscloth would add so much texture and interest.

I love the organic and uneven feel of grasscloth and I happen to know that it is pretty kid proof.

 It often comes in earthy colorways but lately the varieties have expanded.

 Thibaut and other companies have included patterned, colored, and even metallic choices.

I know have seen a pale pink grasscloth with tiny gold threads that I really want. I just can't remember where. It would certainly make little girl's room chicer than most.

How do you feel about grasscloth?

I love grasscloth. The lines don't bother me...they add to the organic feel of it. That would be a lot of wallpaper.

I love it! And just as an aside tidbit -- my sister bought a house with some that had color that didn't work and she had it painted. It looked great!

Smitten, that's how I feel and it's been that way for years! I did a faux, painted grasscloth on one wall in my foyer, posted about it here:
Happy to answer any ?? about how it was done. And the best part? no seams!

Hi Kerry! I love grasscloth, but it is quite a $$$ commitment. Interested to see Cathy's link to her hand painted solution.
Let's paint Helen's walls together and video it !!!

I love grasscloth! So textural and subtle. Wanted it in my master bathroom but the wallpaper guy said it wasn't a good idea to use it where there's so much moisture. Bummer.

We used grasscloth wallpaper on one wall in a living room once and I really liked it. It was a bit difficult to put up and you could see the seam line a bit but not to bad. It added a nice bit of texture to the room.

Hi Kerry - Love grasscloth! I think it would be wonderful in your daughter's room---very unexpected and stylish. Especially fabulous in a pretty color. As Nancy mentioned, it can be pricey after install / hiring a hanger. Maybe you can hang yourself? Keep us posted. Hope you had a great weekend!
