This, I believe, is sea grass without a backing. I can imagine all sorts of problems a foam backing might create on a porch.

Hi I have the old shutter doors in my cottage and I have started painting them white in the bedrooms and they look lovely. I am trying to design the same old doors in my kitchen but it wont be enough doors (and here by us in South Africa you cant find them anymore) till I see how you guys incorporated them with other doors. Thank you forever grateful you guys are doing great designs.

The front porch ceiling paint is Sage Tint (458). My standard warning with colors is that this is a digital photo, it was adjusted when published and automatically adjusted by your computer monitor. Always look at an actual sample to see if it looks like you think it does. :)

I have to disagree with your characterization of seagrass. I find sisal to be much coarser under bare feet. Seagrass is a very classic floor covering that holds up to foot traffic and has a classic look that works in a number of design schemes. It is widely used in the South. I do agree with comment regarding the smell. Anyone that has visited a salt marsh will instantly recognize the distinct aroma.

That's why it's import an to try these things out, since people's opinions vary. (To me) sea grass is uncomfortable to walk on in bare feet and several of my clients have rejected it for that reason.
