Most wallpaper comes vinyl or acrylic coated. Grasscloth is not. Commercial paper or texture with less pattern is fabric backed vinyl and is "scrubbable". 99% of paper for residential is "washable"as I said it is acrylic coated.

This reminds me of my Mom's 70's kitchen. We inherited wood cabinets with coral countertops with metal edges.

She painted the cabinets olive green and found this wild glossy vinyl wallpaper of red and coral geraniums (with a white background) to match the counters and papered the backsplash, and added matching curtains in the breakfast nook. She looked high and low because coral wasn't a popular color at the time. The floral area was fairly limited, (the rest of the walls were white) and it was a fun and happy kitchen.

Of course the next owners promptly removed it all and put in something more tasteful, but less fun.

One thing I love about old kitchens and bathrooms was that people weren't afraid of color and injecting a bit of personality into a space. With open kitchens and are popular now, it is more difficult to do, so we have a sea of neutral.

I must admit that I would hesitate on the cabinet color here, but it looks great.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

However, don't let the first few pages fool you! The book quickly moves into a wide array of styles, including this vibrant explosion of roses wallpapered in a modern kitchen. "Decorating using floral motifs ... can be a great excuse to go bold," write the Becker and Copestick. Decorate Tip: "Papering only one wall in the kitchen leaves the rest of the space dedicated to displaying objects, china and lights in a vast array of bold and cheerful colors that dance against the vivid wall."
Kelly Porter added this to 8 Ways to Break Design Rules in 2012
Wallpaper your kitchen. Wallpaper in the kitchen may be considered an outdated trend of the 1950s and 60s, but as they say -- everything old is new again. A chic wall covering can give your kitchen a distinctive look and add tons of personality and style.
And, voila! My favorite wallpapered kitchen photo. This one, from the book Decorate by Holly Becker and Joanna Copestick, pulled out all the stops. It’s certainly a bold approach, but it feels happy to me.
Lily Gahagan added this to On Trend: Painterly Florals
Wallpaper in punchy pinks and reds certainly makes a statement. For a more cautious take on the style, try a few well-placed pillows or bedding.Next: 2012 Design Forecast: Not So Mellow Yellow
Shawn Gauthier added this to Design Leaps of Faith
We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and this designer clearly intended to create a happy and energizing environment through bold floral wallpaper, lacquered red cabinetry and colorful accessories. It makes an impact and somehow manages to feel both traditional and contemporary at the same time.
Samantha Schoech added this to Mismatched Rooms Made in Heaven
Two different florals with clashing pinks and red? Sure!
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to The New Nostalgia: History With a Kick
Can you put your finger on why this popular kitchen makes the rounds on Houzz? The mad mix of modern cabinets and vintage-inspired wallpaper in this bright and unexpected way gives this room so much personality, you can almost hear it sing.See the most popular kitchen photos on Houzz today
Samantha Schoech added this to 14 Rooms Abloom With Modern-Day Chintz
Pow! A bold, modern take on a chintz pattern enlivens this little kitchen.
4. Make bold decorating decisions, even on fixtures and finishes. Don't limit yourself to builder's-beige paint, stainless appliances, white cabinets and granite counters; tap into what you love instead. Floral wallpaper and candy-apple-red cabinets? If you love them, why not?
