I have always loved grasscloth. For me, it never went out of fashion. We even painted the grasscloth in our dining room. The paperer laid one strip upside down and it drove me to madness, so I painted it and it looks like heavily slubbed fabric. I saw some rafia wallovering at Williams-Sonoma home last night that I want to cover the master bedroom in.

And *I* have that Carlton Varney

Asbestos? Holy cow!

Was that you who posted to the WashPost's Home Front chat today about The Book Thing? I practically screamed out your blog's name when I saw the first post about this place during the chat.

I have a friend who used grasscloth in a barroom heavily accented in red. Terribly sophisticated.

I went to an open house last year, and the powder room had just been redone in a grasscloth wallpaper. It was incredibly sophisticated and beautiful!
