It does not take a dramatic change to make a dramatic change … In the first photo, the bedroom was painted a darkish tan, and it looked good. But, as you can see, once the one accent wall of grasscloth went up, the room had personality and warmth and character.

This grasscloth pattern is different from most, because it incorporates wide reeds, which look much like bamboo. Real bamboo is hard to cut, and hard to get to fit into corners and to cut around detailed areas like decorative moldings. So this thinner look-alike version was a good option.

In the top photo, the white area is where I have applied smoothing compound, to smooth the textured wall.  I also included photos of the seams, so viewers understand that grasscloth is a natural product, and is not expected to match across the seams.  This particular product, in fact, was very homogeneous in color (many are not), and I was very happy with the way it turned out.

I hung this on an accent / feature wall in a master bedroom in Pearland, outside Houston, Texas.
