When it comes to wallcoverings, natural grass might not be the first thing that comes to your mind. Commonly referred to as grasscloth, this is a style of wallcovering made from a variety of natural fibers and other materials, including bamboo, jute, and hemp.
Paperweave wallcoverings are similar to traditional grasscloth in the way they use natural materials with a textured finish. Paperweave wallcoverings are a bit different when compared to grasscloth, so use this guide to help you understand what paperweave handmade wallcoverings are and where you can put them in your home.
What paperweave is
Paperweave wallcoverings are made out of wood pulp fibers that are dyed in the patterned or solid colors desired for the material and then dried. The wood fibers are then woven by hand and then glued to a backing.
What makes paperweave different than grasscloth wallcoverings is this: paperweave wallcoverings can be dyed in any color, so they are easier to customize and wood is used rather than any type of grass or reed.
Where to put paperweave wallcoverings in the home
Paperweave wallcoverings can be placed in a variety of areas of the home. Since these wallcoverings are designed to be viewed and have an alluring, natural texture, it's best to place these wallcoverings in an area where you gather often and want calm and peace.
Consider placing paperweave wallcoverings in the following areas of your home.
The home office
The home office should be a place to think clearly and stay focused. Paperweave wallcoverings can thrive in this area of the home, especially if you choose lighter, neutral colors like sand, spring grass, ocean blue, or even an eggshell white for your inspiration.
The master bedroom
The master bedroom is a place to play with some lighter color, so choose paperweave wallcoverings with bold wood pulp textures in lavender, gray, or even a rose pink. Dusty mint is another color to consider.
The living room
Perhaps the room you gather in most, the living room is an ideal place for large splashes of color to be combined with paperweave wallcoverings that have tight textured patterns in them. Richer colors of paperweave wallcoverings can be used in the living room, such as goldenrod, hunter green, or even a dusty navy.
