grasscloth in the kitchen

I love grasscloth for a myriad reasons - it adds warmth, texture and tons of character to any space but, above all else, I love it because it's just so darn pretty! I'm not sure how practical it may be to hang it in a kitchen (I'm a messy cook and find it hard enough to keep white subway tile clean!), but when I saw how amazing it looked in this Connecticut home, it stopped me in my tracks!  Paired with glassfront cabinetry, crisp white beadboard and that stunning, gray and cream hand-painted floor - perfection!

Here are  my picks for creating a similar look at home:

 

rug / monogrammed wine glasses / Victorian faucet / grasscloth wallpaper / Rohl farmhouse sink

Would you hang grasscloth wallpaper in the kitchen?

twice as nice

It's another manic day, and I've had nothing but computer issues all morning, so before I lose my mind, I wanted to share a gorgeous beach home designed by the wonderfully talented interior design firm, Black and Poole.  Founder Gretchen Kubiak definitely became a girl after my own heart when she designed a Victorian in Cape May, New Jersey, and covered the walls in black paint and grasscloth!  It's such a refreshing change to see a beach home in darker colors:

White moulding ledges look crisp against black walls and highlight art and coral beautifully:

Keeping accessories neutral and light helps keep the overall feeling calm, despite dark walls:

I posted the following dining room in a previous post, but I can't get enough!  The blue/black walls, antique brass chandelier and warm wood furniture is very reminiscent of East Coast yacht club, but here it's warm and inviting:

LOVE the rope tie backs:

Grasscloth + brass fixtures = happiness:
