She {hearts} Stencils and Wallpaper

I love, love, love wallpaper and stencils.  I could scour wallpaper books and websites for hours.  I love the boldness of a stencil and love the options that are available (and how stencils are a bit less “temporary” than wallpaper).  I know some people are a little uneasy about wallpaper and stencils and can’t help think “80s/90s country style” when those two words are brought up.  Well, I must say, the two have come a long way and today’s home decorating options using wallpaper and stencils are definitely fresh, modern, and endless.

Stencil – laundry room
(love the bright stripes!)

Stencil – bedroom
(stenciling behind the bed really highlights the headboard and makes a bold statement)

Wallpaper – office or other “personal” room
(what a fun pattern- so much character!)

Floor Stencil – big room
(Could I love this more? Probably not.
For the color-shy, a more subtle color would still make quite the statement)

Wallpaper – little/big girl’s room
(even one wall of a bold wallpaper in a little girl’s room
would bring such a presentation without overdoing it)

Ceiling Stencil – bathroom or other small space
(a stenciled ceiling is so fun and unexpected!)

Stencil – nursery
(this was actually my daughter’s nursery- feelin’ sentimental about this one!)

Wallpaper – bathroom or any small space
(love the boldness of this wallpaper, despite the small space… the mirror provides an interesting, continuous look)

Obviously, I’m a lover of floral-ish, damask, and geometric patterns, but even a simple stripe or chevron (or a soft tone-on-tone with a more “busy” pattern) make a simple, subtle change (or could even be a bold change using loud colors).  Or, try wallpapering or stenciling just one wall or one small space in a room (like the back of a bookcase or on a canvas and use it as an art piece).  I just bought some pretty, subtle, grey damask wallpaper for the back of our new (thanks, Dad!) living room built-ins.  I can’t wait to (okay, okay, I can’t wait to watch my mom/learn how to) put the wallpaper up and enjoy the hint of texture and character it will add.
