Mum wanted feature walls so instead painting random walls in block colours (which I find to be kind of outdated and sometimes garish) I've chosen a nice cream coloured grass cloth to feature on selected walls throughout the house as well as on the stairwell where Ive suggested installing a dado rail and only covering the bottom half of the wall in the same grasscloth. With the majority of the house being tiled, I think this would definitely soften the spaces up a bit and will mirror the texture and shades of the big brick feature wall. My parents have very simple, classic taste so here are a few sample pics I showed them of how I visualised the overall feel of the house to be. They loved it! The decorators arrive tomorrow to start painting so we're very excited to see the finishing result!
Now I won't be applying this to any of the spaces in my parent's place but I thought I'd share this amazing product I came across during my research into the perfect wall covering. Its a product by Crezana called Liquid Metal Grasscloth. It's so opulent and could easily be OTT when teamed with the wrong surfaces and accessories but I love how it's styled in this image right down to the very last detail of the framed child's drawing on the wall. Definitely adding it to my inspiration images for one of my upcoming design assignments. Perfection!
