Planning and decorating a nursery is not only fun, but it can also be one of the most exciting aspects of expecting a baby! One of the best baby nursery decorative ideas is to use stencils to incorporate patterns, colors and themes with either traditional nursery color schemes or a gender-neutral design! Stenciling is also a fantastic way to help a family on a budget as one stencil can be used time again with different colors for not only the walls, but also the floor, fabrics and furniture! Since so much time will be spent in the nursery, it's wonderful when a beautiful and inviting space is created which you'll love to be in and treasure. Let's see a few baby room ideas with Royal Design Studio Stencils that have inspired sweet stenciled lullabies...
Designer Genevieve March from Turned to Design created a fun and thoroughly modern stenciled nursery with the Get Ziggy With It Stencil from the Allover Modern Stencil Collection. She used a tone on tone stenciled finish on a feature wall and brought in pops of color throughout the space. The effect was so winning that it garnered a design competition award!!!
Stenciled borders are a perfect way to add pizzazz and color without stenciling an entire wall. The Birdie Border Stencil adds such an oh-so-sweet touch to this nursery and the placement gives a fresh, contemporary feel. The entire Border Stencil Collection has a variety of patterns that range from global chic designs to modern graphic patterns.
Designer Laurie March, from HGTV's The House Counselor, decided to add the splash of color via the stenciled walls as opposed to the overdoing with accessories. We think it's gorgeous! The Nova Trellis Stencil is super easy to stencil on a feature wall and here added just the right graphic touch to this nursery for twin boys. You can see more images and info on the stenciled nursery walls project on the HGTV website.
A special Royal Design Studio customer shared this lovely nursery she created for her own baby. (LOVE that chandelier and fabric drape, too!) Using a flat and gloss paint technique (matte painted walls and gloss paint for the stencil in the same color), she stenciled the Ribbon Lattice Stencil design in a lovely tone-on-tone stencil treatment onto an accent wall. Didn't she create such a chic and glam stenciled space for her budding fashionista!
One can also stencil the chandelier, too! The fab Dressing Room Chandelier Stencil from the Bari J. Stencil Collection is stenciled twice on these nursery walls to add that extra stylish oomph! We love it! We also appreciate the inspiration on outlining specific areas of a nursery with paint -- note how the shelves become a built-in bookcase with just a swich of the paint brush. Who could resist this stenciled beauty of a nursery?
A creative theme and either a soothing or playful palette will help create a nursery you'll be happy to spend time in. A stencil can help create the perfect canvas for all the design details you'll ooh and ahh over for baby. By the way, a little trivia for you - the first room pattern goddess Melanie Royals of Royal Design Studio ever stenciled was her son's nursery! We think you might come away smitten with stenciling, too!
