Let's rethink wallpaper

This wallpaper from Thibaut has me reconsidering wallpaper.
I'd love to use this wallpaper in a very masculine room, like maybe in my library.

The discussion came about because of our noise problem.

This entry hall and

this family room that have high ceilings and one sofa,  have a reverberation problem at the moment.
I am hoping that by adding more furniture this will lessen.

My husband had the idea of adding grasscloth wallcovering,
 first to my youngest daughter's room to add texture.
 I agreed and thought that it was also a bit sophisticated instead of the obvious juvenile look.

Then the conversation moved on to our family room.
I sprinted to my computer and found this sisal wallcovering on Thibaut's site.
It comes in four colorways.
Then I found the Bankun Raffia in 15 colorways including this bold Cranberry.

These two leather looks and an ostrich leather had me intrigued.

Even their grasscloth is not boring. I love this Kunqu Damask.

Thibaut's grasscloth resource offers a variety of looks in grasscloth, including metalic, multicolored, and traditional natural looks.
