Grasscloth is a wonderful way to wrap a room in natural texture. It can make an elegant statement, offer a rough woven backdrop, or be soothingly quiet and cocooning. If given a choice between getting the outer layers of a room right vs. extra furnishings, I will choose the former every time.
The Master Bedroom Hall at Meadow House provides a wee preview of the interplay of textures I am weaving throughout this home in the country.
The color of Phillip Jeffries Bermuda Hemp wallpaper in Harbor Blue is sublime, with hints of warm blue and grey. It introduces a touch of sophistication while echoing the wild grasses just outside the windows.
The laurel chandelier is Aerin Lauder's Hampton Pendant — its burnished silver leaf finish is stunning, and the patterned shadows it casts are mesmerizing.
Doors provide smooth contrast, painted in Wythe Blue Historical Color HC-143 to complement the grasscloth. Oak floors are fumed, and then oiled a dark driftwood to ground the airy space while allowing the grain to peer through. The custom Jacobean bench adds even more texture, with its barley twist legs and subtle diamond pattern upholstery.
I can't wait to show you the rest of this project soon. Wishing you a peaceful day.
