Before and After: A Hallway Makeover with Society Social Peel and Stick Grasscloth Wallpaper

3 min read

A single of the most transformative matters I have carried out in the new apartment is hold the new Society Social x Wallpops peel and stick fake grasscloth wallpaper in my hallway. I was surely energized when Society Social announced the new line and gifted me rolls for my room, but I actually had NO thought how superior it would wind up seeking. Of system I have usually considered grasscloth wallpaper was excellent – it adds superb texture and that pure factor that every single space demands – but I adore it SO much a lot more than I even thought I would! I’d utilized peel and stick wallpaper in my previous apartment so I knew how wonderful it was for renters, but I’d truly never read of peel and stick grasscloth before. Commonly grasscloth wallpaper is recognised for currently being extremely costly – so this peel and stick fake selection is just this kind of a terrific and budget-friendlier selection! And I very seriously just can’t tell it’s fake – the texture is beautiful. I didn’t even know it was faux for a although, lol. This wallpaper completely reworked the place, right here it is prior to I moved in:

As much as placing the wallpaper up, I’m an adamant non-DIYer, so I experienced anyone assist me, and he had a quite uncomplicated time with it. I’d earlier had the same individual really dangle real wallpaper in my rest room, and this peel and stick took a portion of the time and prompted very little mess (compared to the true wallpaper, which was a substantial mess and took without end). So it was extremely no muss no fuss and he even commented on how very well it worked and how great the grasscloth was! You can see higher than that he also made use of it to address my gigantic fuse box, which seriously assisted make the space search a ton improved! Society Social has a calculator on their web page that will inform you how lots of rolls to obtain – this job needed about 3.

 

On the correct you can see the texture and color up close. I really think it is fantastic – just couldn’t be much more delighted with it. I seemed at a couple of of their colorful options and genuinely liked them all, but I had no hesitation when it arrived to deciding on the wheat colour – I just like that organic glimpse and felt it would be excellent for the hallway. You can see that I also included the gentle swap – that I essentially did myself! It was tremendous uncomplicated – the wallpaper went on simply and caught with no problem. The only issue is I want to redo it mainly because I trapped the wallpaper on with the strains going vertically as a substitute of horizontally – whoops! The good thing is it was so easy it will not be a dilemma to redo it.

To make this little, pass-via space feel a lot more distinctive, I switched out the super unpleasant flush mount for a lovely and whimsical a single from Anthropologie. It has small leaves all over and a really, natural and organic shape to it, and I like that it provides an more purely natural factor to the room. I have a great deal of florals in the bed room so I sense like this light-weight fixture offers a little preview of that!

I also hung an unabashedly female Inslee botanical print that I experienced body with a pink and white double mat – I just love it! Amongst the grasscloth wallpaper, the light-weight fixture, and the framed print, I come to feel like I’ve been equipped to get a nothing form of place and generate this pretty little minute. It is just a excellent instance I think of how any house in your residence, no matter how seemingly trivial and modest or unimportant, can be an prospect to make some thing distinctive.

Overall, my only regret with the Society Social grasscloth wallpaper is that I could not use additional of it in a bigger place in my dwelling! I’m incredibly content with the paint shades I chose but I appreciate this stuff so a lot I would have happily accomplished a total area with it. I just cannot propose it sufficient!
