Color Variations in Grasscloth

If you choose a grasscloth product, it’s important to keep in mind that the stems of grass cannot be matched from one strip to another. Even more important is to understand that there most likely will be variations in color from one strip to another (“paneling”), even if they are taken from the same bolt of material. You can see this in the strips over the fireplace.

In addition, there can be “shading,” which refers to variations in color within a strip of wallpaper. For instance, the slightly lighter color on the outer edges of each strip of wallpaper in the photos.

To really emphasize this, in the second photo, you can see the horizontal demarcation where the color changes from dark to lighter in a straight horizontal line about 8″ below the crown molding.

All of these features are listed in the manufacturer’s sales information and again in their hanging instructions, and are, by industry standards, considered to be part of “the inherent natural beauty of the product.”
