If you’re looking to update your walls, textured wallpaper—also known as grasscloth—is a great option. Subtle and sophisticated, the naturally woven texture adds an element of surprise and intrigue in a place where we’re used to seeing two-dimensional color or hanging art. While the latter two can still be beautiful, grasscloth feels uniquely modern yet classic.
These 12 rooms use grasscloth in ways we can totally get behind, from bold greens to soothing blues and grays, in every kind of room. If you’re looking to add textured wallpaper to your own home, take a cue from these well-styled spaces.
