When I think of wall stencils, I often think of the stencils of the past. The 'country charm' style that was popular in the late '80s and early '90s. And while it reminds me of many of the homes in my childhood neighborhood (of which I hold wonderful memories), it's not something I want in my home now!
I was reading Three Men and a Lady today and she had posted about wall stencils. And I love these! So many fabulous stencils to really add something to a room.
You could do a simple small stencil on one wall like this (which I think would be adorable in a little girl's bedroom)
Or make a beautiful medallion above a chandelier like this...
Or do a full wall for a wallpaper look. I love this elegant look, and would love to do something like this without having the mess of wallpaper.
