A handsome dining/living room pair in their fresh new (grasscloth) outfits. The subtle contrast between the two spaces was a much needed update from the previous monochromatic gray paint. .
Happy Monday. Here’s my latest upcycled piece. Couldn’t wait till “transformation Tuesday” to share it with you. It’s a vintage sideboard turned rustic tv console (sold already). Shabby chic chalk painted. New Douglas fir custom top, matte black knobs and chicken wired doors.
Lined in my latest obsession...GRASSCLOTH!!! This one happens to be the genuine woven variety (splurge purchase on sale at my local go to wallpaper store D. Schultz). I love this paper so much that I have already earmarked the rest of the double roll for a china cabinet I’ve had in my garage for years. I’m thinking grey with brushed gold hardware (piece has gold etchings on the doors). Yay...Inspiration!
Having confessed my latest obsession I must also fully disclose that I recently helped a friend wallpaper her son’s room in a rich navy blue FAUX grasscloth and it was simply stunning. Faux wallcoverings have come such a long way that in some instances it is virtually impossible to tell the real from the faux (ummm till you look at the price). Real wovens are a little trickier to hang too because they can fray and actually pull (kinda like a woven sweater). I usually purchase wipeable wallpapers since most are going inside drawers and I want them to be beautiful yet durable. Not trying to sway you one way or the other just giving you my DIY’er two cents.
So sorry this tv console post ended up being mostly about woven wallpaper...Oh well.
Have a great week and I’ll talk to you Friday!

Swoon 🖤. This has to be one of *the* most beautiful grasscloths around, and it just went up in Curtis Park Historic District. PITCH by @twenty2wallpaper (yes, they also print Denver Damask!). Enjoy it @ash_lee_tharp 🤗. Install by Jodi S. What a great way to end the weekend! Xx
I’m coming at you live ( but sore from walking for 12 hours yesterday) from Atlanta. I’m at @americasmartatl finding new sources for our studio and our showroom @storminspired . Yesterday we found some incredible original art pieces that have me giddy and already plotting the perfect homes for them. Unfortunately, none of them will fit in this Dining Room from our #dswowfactor project, but that’s ok,the navy silk wallcovering can stand alone!

Y’all, the Editorial Board and I had a hard time selecting today’s room.
In design, knowing the rules is important - because if you don’t know them you can’t break them. However, here, we love the symmetry. It was executed perfectly. I especially love the grasscloth lacquered chests from Bungalow 5. They’re bougie and I’m here for it.
Y’all, wallpaper is not out of style. And we love the texture it brings to the room.
Last, the lacquered ceiling. 😍😍😍Admittedly, this is not a look everyone will love, but don’t leave your ceiling builder beige/white. It’s not cute. And if you don’t paint over the primer Well, I’m just gonna plead the blood of Jesus on that one. The ceiling is your 5th wall and deserves equal consideration. Why spend thousands having your home painted only to be unhappy with the results The colour, or lack thereof, on the ceiling can affect how your paint reads.
Karen picked the chandelier. Sia was big during the selection stage y’all. Bless it.

Hanging this grasscloth wallpaper was one of my top 3 fav house projects of last year. Not a huge difference from the painted black wall it was before, but at the same time, dramatically different: so much more depth without any more “stuff”
This is a progress shot from a current project. When I first met with these lovely clients, I took one step into their house and immediately wondered what I was doing there. A beautiful custom home. They both wanted to add just a few finishing touches to set the house apart. *
We came up with the beams in the ceiling to add interest to the very long family room. We are going to be grass cloth wallpaper-ing in between these beams in February. I can’t wait to share the final product!
We know that the bathroom is your own private oasis, so we wanted to flood it with natural light and give it a feeling of tranquility with the soft, golden sheen reflected off of the grasscloth wallpaper.
This E-Design client came to me with one request - to incorporate that gorgeous sideboard she was gifted by her parents for Christmas. She had just purchased her first home and was so excited to start renovating and decorating each room to make it her own. And because she loves to cook and host dinner parties that’s why she chose her dining room first. We combined feminine touches like the vintage style rug with modern elements like the dining table to create her dream dining room. #alisacristineinteriors #edesign
