My brother, Bryan, and sister-in-law, Laura, moved into Laura’s Pawpaw’s house last weekend. We got to go see it last night. It’s a lovely home that Laura’s Pawpaw built himself. While taking the tour we walked into a room that will be used as an office. This room has many built-in shelves and has burlap on the walls. My guess is that the burlap has been there for years. I immediately said, “oh, I love the burlap wall treatment.” Neither Bryan or Laura seemed too enthused about it. I thought I would put this post together so that maybe they might be able to see a vision for the room that consists of keeping the burlap. Either way, I’m sure they will make the room look great. I just thought it might be fun to throw some inspiration photos together. Congrats on your new abode, Bryan and Laura.
Burlap seems to be so, dare I say, trendy at the moment. I hate to even say that because burlap has been used for a long time for many purposes. Below are some images I found in a quick Google search of burlap and/or grass cloth used on walls.
What do y’all think? Can you picture a space in your own home with burlap on the wall? I think, given the right space, burlap on walls can be very attractive.
