Wallpaper! Oh how I love it! I hear from clients and contractors and everyone in between shrug when I say the word wallpaper. Most people think that wallpaper is dated and vinyl and has no place in the modern homes of today. I could not disagree more. I love it! I love the way it makes a space feel, I love the warmth that it gives a room and I especially love the way it adds texture to a wall.
Grasscloth wallpapers are very hot right now. They are a natural fiber wallcovering that is made from bamboo, silk, and natural fibers that are woven together. These grasscloth coverings come in a wide array of colors from steel gray to beautiful natural tones; some even have beautiful patterns on them.
I would suggest, if you are not familiar with wall paper hanging that you have a professional do it for you. I personally have hung grasscloth wallpaper and had no issues with it. In fact, I think it is easier to hang than some vinyls. The trick it the paste and the amount of paste that you use…
|Lots and lots of paste – just be careful not to get it on the front of the paper as it can stain the paper
|make sure that you paste the seems so they don’t fold up.
|scissors can be easier to use than razor blades with natural grasscloth.
