Grasscloth wallpaper had its heyday in the 1970s — in fact my parents' living room was covered in it as were several of their friends' — but I've been noticing it popping up more and more and in an unlikely place: children's rooms. Is grasscloth back? Probably not, but it does seem to have shed its association with the groovy 70s and instead adopted an air of sophistication and glamour.
I know what you're thinking - mixing grasscloth and little sticky, dirty fingers is a terrible idea. Well, many of these rooms actually use a faux grasscloth wallpaper for a similar visual effect without the same maintenance worries - a smart choice for children's bedrooms or playrooms.
