It is certainly no secret that I love wallpaper. It is such an easy way to add visual interest to a room. Especially for me who can't commit to hanging art! I have it in my living room (and I love it!), my dining room, entrance and my bedroom.
My new fascination is grasscloth wallpaper. Well, not new exactly considering I have taken home the sample book from Get Creative Interiors in Summerside on more than one occasion in the last 2 years. But lately I have been seeing it everywhere! I was originally drawn to the natural soft colors but now I see it in colors like turquoise and green. You can even get it with a pattern now.
The great thing about colored grasscloth is that it allows you to use color to make an impact on your walls but because of the color variation in the material it isn't as dramatic as a solid color.

One downfall is that grasscloth is more expensive than most wallpapers and I've heard it is somewhat challenging to apply since it isn't prepasted. But rather than do a whole room you could do a small entryway. Or frame a section behind a bed with mouldings for a chic headboard? Or paper the back of a bookcase?

For those in Summerside who are interested, there is a good selection of wallpaper in stock at Get Creative Interiors (formerly Color Your World) on the All Weather Highway. They also have books to order from and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. It is worth a visit!
