Wallpaper seems to be making a come back.Â The designsÂ are graphic, bold and modern – a world away from those popular in the 80′s.Â However, wallpaper canÂ be expensive.Â And, in a few years when you’re ready to change the scenery, it’s a major pain in theÂ #&!# to remove. That’s where stencils come in.Â Stencils are much easier to apply and can create just as much impact in a room as wallpaper.Â Plus, when its time to redecorate, you simply paint over the design and move on.Â Simple.Â
If stenciled walls evoke images of tacky bathrooms and kitchen borders – think again! Stencils are hot right now.Â Lots of people are using them to update their living spaces.Â I’ve noticed aÂ number of stencilled decor projects popping up all over blogland, so I’d thought I’d share some of the eye candy.
Do you have a favorite? I love them all, but could see using the muted tone-on-tone stencil in the first image in our master bedroom. Could you see using one of these designs in a room in your house?
