Grasscloth’s Fresh Look in Interior Design

Grasscloth has long been used in interior design to add texture, but now it’s going beyond tactile interest and upping its visual appeal even more. Recently grasscloth has been available in great patterns and colors in addition to the natural look traditionally associated with the material.

Phillip Jeffries Ltd. has a wonderful selection of grasscloth wallcoverings to choose from. The Bermuda Hemp and Juicy Jute come in a beautiful array of colors and shades, touching on nearly every color of the rainbow and spanning a spectrum from soft to bright. Just lovely!

Then Phillip Jeffries also has pretty patterns, including Embroidered Manila Hemp and Trellis Embroidery.

We love including grasscloth in our designs, and have a number of examples. Here’s a chain link grasscloth paper in a client’s pool house.

And another alluring pattern adding the perfect punch of interest in a client’s powder room.

We’ve also used grasscloth in bedrooms and dining rooms, and in unexpected places like on the backs of bookcases or ceilings in small rooms as the material is as versatile as it is beautiful!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
