Sent To The Corner

This is the kind of faux paint treatment that I love, it's just a simple okra color ragged over white. This would look so great in a dining room or even an entry way. But what makes it special is the corner stencil, painted in a contrasting color. It seems as though stenciling had gone out of style until recently, when we began to see more original and stylized stencils that are a world away from the first "fruit and squares" that were popular many years ago.

As you can see from this photo, this stencil is simple in design with only a few leaves along with some swirls. It is understated and draws attention to the height of the ceiling. Please check out all the great sites that are online, you can find a stencil in millions of style's, design and price, and they are not the stencils that you may remember from years ago. Today's stencils are designed for the easy going lifestyle most of us want in our homes.
