“One cool feature about our home is the atrium- this bright, sunny area in the middle of the home with so much potential. The downside is that you can see this atrium from several rooms in the house. I thought, since we have to see this space basically everywhere in our house, it should be cute! The main eyesore was the dirty, discolored concrete. This is where Royal Design Studio Stencils came in! Inspired by the beautiful stencil projects I found on Pinterest, I took the plunge, bought the Bird’s Eye Ikat Paint Stencil and set out to transform the atrium. Like most people during this pandemic, I had plenty of time on my hands! After power washing, etching, and painting the base coat on the concrete, off I went stenciling, doing a few rows each day.  I am so pleased with the finished product! Now when I walk by this space, I stop and stare at its gorgeousness. It has turned into a cozy, peaceful lounge spot; perfect for relaxing and reading on a beautiful California day. I’m already eyeing a wall in my bathroom for my next stencil project!” -  Angela Butler

“I purchased Royal Design Studio Stencils to dress up the plain leg well on my kitchen island. After I purchased new counter level bar stools, I noticed how bare the wall beneath the counter looked. I used the Anisa Damask Paint Stencil to stencil the pattern in three coordinating kitchen colors.” – Cythina Ross

Jameela Vine Stencil painted onto a ceiling by Darlene King

“This is a flooring project in the mud room/laundry room that was originally a brown and dated tile, now elevated to a bright and beautiful painted tile that looks original! The Toledo Tile Stencil turned out better than expected and has held up remarkably well to high traffic by 6 humans and 2 dogs!” – Kaci Farmer

“A friend told me about Royal Design Studio Stencils, and that it's possible to paint over and stencil an ugly tile floor. I became totally obsessed with the idea. Within a week after I heard about it, I was painting my bathroom floor with the gorgeous Palladium Tile Stencil. It was the BEST decision. What a difference! A perfect quarantine DIY project.” – Kathryn Tormos

“I am SO happy with my stencil project! I was so promoted to complete this project because I have an Airbnb room in my backyard, and my guests enter through the side of my house to enter their room. SO, I decided to spruce up the walkway to the guest room for my guests! BEST DECISION EVER! I have gotten so many compliments; some people even think that I installed real tile! This project was so worth it. The You’re A Star Tile Stencil was absolutely amazing and VERY easy to use. I can’t wait to find other places and other designs I can use around my house! :)” – Lindsay Wells

“My lanai, I love the final result! I painted the concrete with the Chrystal Tile Stencil.” – Michelle Schincariol

Filagree Furniture Panel Stencil painted onto wood furniture by Kristel.

"This Mansion House Grille Furniture Stencil was perfect for this outdated buffet. My client was thrilled to say the least and so was I! Thank you for a great quality product, Royal Design Studio Stencils! The whole piece was painted using a texturing additive.” – Misty Johnson

We are delighted with the results.  We painted the wall a Caribbean Blue, and used a metallic gold paint to stencil the Palace Trellis Wall Stencil.” – Denise Lewis


“We recently purchased our first house and we couldn't wait to decorate and add our own style to it. A beautiful blue wall color and the Tribal Batik Wall Stencil completely transformed our bedroom! Originally we had only planned to paint and stencil one accent wall. But, we loved the color and stencil so much that we painted the entire room blue and stenciled multiple walls.” – Amanda Klingler

“I love my finished wall! It added so much feeling to this room. I did it! Thank you Royal Design Studio for the awesome Palace Trellis Wall Stencil and Royal Stencil Creme paint!” – Camille Brightman

“My plain white plaster fireplace definitely needed a major facelift. I had thought about tile or stone and then discovered Royal Design Stencils.   The “how to” videos were great and the process was fantastic. I’m so pleased with the outcome and at a fraction of the cost. The Asmir Triangle Stencil was easy to use and the highest of quality.” – Caren Castle

“This is going to be my craft/storage room. The room is going to be dry walled, so I decided to paint the floor first with the Toledo Tile Stencil.” – Elly Niezen

“I absolutely love the way my accent wall came out in my bedroom. My friends and family love it too.  I walk into my room and I smile (seriously). It’s even my backdrop when I’m on Zoom calls. I used the Palace Trellis Moroccan Wall Stencil. I wanted something to pop and add texture to the wall without having to wallpaper it. It was really easy to do. I used the 3” Royal Stencil Brush and followed the directions. I’m already thinking about doing our guest bedroom! I’m secretly obsessed with Royal Design Studio Stencils!!” – Heather Apostolidis

“I wanted to update my laundry room without breaking the bank!  Painted the cabinets and floors. Using Broken Braid Herringbone Stencil, I was able to use the same cabinet colors to tie the whole project together! Loved the herringbone pattern but didn’t want it to look to busy on the floor. With the stencil I was able to put down just what I wanted using multiple colors!” – Linda Magill

“I loved using the Concrete Quilt Tile Stencil for my fireplace! I can’t believe how much it brightens up our space! Thank you Royal Design Studio Stencils! Such a great transformation with your stencil!” – Michelle Olson

Herringbone Brick Stencil painted on bathroom floor by Oyer Cam Home.

“It was time to update my girls’ shared bedroom so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration! I came across the Polka Heart Wall Stencil from Royal Design Studio and it was love at first sight! I decided to try it for myself and I’m so glad I did! It was a hit and loved by all... especially my two daughters.” – Sara Krebbs

“Here is a niche that needed some embellishing with the Majorelle Floral Trellis Wall Stencil. I started with an embossed skim coat of the design and used a multi-color pallet to bring out my client’s fabrics. I used all of the Royal Stencil Creme paint colors including the gold that looks like 24 carrot! It looks like a piece of art!” – Wendy Tortolini
