A pre-existing bench that was reupholstered with a shimmering black fabric with coordinating cording was used as a comfortable sitting area in this boutique. The pillow fabric was also used as a wallpaper application in the dressing room and behind the cashier counter.
This spa-style retreat features walnut cabinets, Shoji screen doors with metal tile and faux grass cloth walls. A true Japanese-style tub and a large walk-in shower with body sprays provide the finishing touches.
Interior designer Tiffany Brooks covered the backing of the built-in bookcase with green grass cloth wallpaper that highlights the white books and accessories on the open shelves, including a pair of fun white ear-shaped bookends.
Combining the best of country living with the casualness of contemporary, the designer used analogous colors to combine the look. Graphic-patterned draperies pop against the dark grass cloth wallpaper while they merge with the cream-colored adjacent wall. The room suggests comfort, simplicity and an invitation to rest.
Nodding to the Italians’ great use of color, the dining room is enveloped in raspberry grass cloth wallpaper. A large, lamp-shade chandelier hangs over a long wood dining table adorned with a dainty runner and floral centerpiece. Upholstered armchairs are fixed at the ends of the table with wood chairs lining the sides.
Designer Ana Donohue defines this contemporary living room as "Bermuda in the city," as it suggests a subdued glamor with its soft color palette and minimalist approach. The unusual shade of blush in the grass cloth wallpaper sets the tone for the room and allows the club chairs to make a strong, ultra-sophisticated statement. The mirror and the opaque glass chandelier add yet another modern touch.
The most imposing aspect of Brian’s design is probably the golden, hand-crafted cherry blossoms that hang all the way down the staircase to form a 30-foot suspended mobile. In the midst of admiring the mobile, it’s easy to miss the smaller details: Grass cloth wallpaper, hand painted faux paneling and the baby blue custom carpet, which—when looking down from the top floor—“looks like a fan,” Brians explains to HGTV.com.
Maintaining a mantra of "go big or go home," Antonio Ballatore, former HGTV Design Star contestant and host of HGTV's The Antonio Project, takes ordinary rooms and makes them wow-worthy. Case in point: this Japanese-inspired master bedroom that features a 3D painted wall mural and a three-panel Asian screen design. The peaceful blue wall color and grass-cloth wallpaper with Japanese waves bring a beach theme to the space. The bed has drawers underneath for extra storage.
In the master bedroom, the wall on which the bed rests is covered in a gorgeous, metallic silver grass cloth that conceals the hidden door to the closet. Above the mirrored, four-poster bed, a brass chain link chandelier makes a bold statement, while rich texture was added with black faux fur pillow shams and blanket at the food of the bed. To personalize the space even further, designers had a modern, monogram printed on metallic linen.
“I tried to make it feel as daring as the rest of the house, but also like a pretty getaway,” Sonal says. For resort vibes, she chose a wicker headboard from World Market, a basket-y light from Serena & Lily, and grass cloth wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries. “My mom stays here a lot and she always asks, “Are you ever going to get tired of the blue?” Sonal says. “I tell her no! There’s so much to look at in our house, I never get tired of any of it.”
Although many homeowners invest the majority of their home design budgets into their kitchens, it's the area of Chris' condo where he spent the least. By working with the brown and black tones of his existing granite countertops, he used color to give the otherwise basic, modern kitchen a personalized look. Glossy-black penny round tiles bought for $8 per square foot were used on all wall surfaces to add architectural interest and sheen. To help the pantry door visually recede, he had it painted the same shade of black as the tiles. Since the adjacent living room is wrapped in a black-brown grass cloth with a metallic backing, he carried the look over to the bar area to tie the two spaces together. All together, Chris' kitchen decor came to $1400.
Twenty six floors above the Las Vegas strip, these homeowners were interested in a space that is relaxing and rejuvenating after a long day, so designers incorporated elements of Zen and relaxation to give the couple a spa feel to their master suite. Color rich textiles and multifaceted textures cover every surface in this master retreat. Heavy weight window coverings help to keep out light and noise. The tēte-á-tēte sofa is covered in high style jade iridescent fabric and is accented with silk and velvet throw pillows. A globally sourced custom mural originating from Thailand was made into a headboard, while metallic grass cloth wallpaper accents the space.
