Indian inspired design celebrates color and pattern, making it a style that decorators from around the world swoon over.

We are seeing the Annapakshi Indian Damask Wall Stencil from this collection used everywhere and in a variety of ways. Intrigued to see how you can use this beautiful stencil pattern on your own walls and furniture? Read on for 10 fabulous stencil ideas for this bird of many colors….
One general rule for decorating in a global style with Indian design is to pile on pattern! This global chic bedroom makeover pulls together our Annapakshi Damask Wall Stencil painted on an accent wall and vibrant bedding. The combination and layering of Eastern patterns instantly adds personality and creates a worldly look reminiscent of the heavily patterned interiors of India.
Vivacity of color definitely brings out the exotic look of Indian patterns. Saturated colors such as fuchsia pinks and metallic golds add a global chic feel to a space usually found in India… or colorfully stenciled interiors! You can easily create this look for your own home using your favorite bold colors and a drop-shadow technique that makes stencil patterns look 3 dimensional.

If you love bold color, but not a fan of pink, you can use any color you want, including blue! Our Annapakshi Damask Wall Stencil resembles a peacock, so of course we thought it would look amazing in regal peacock hues! A mix of Florence and Provence Chalk Paint® provides a beautiful teal backdrop to the Napoleonic Blue Chalk Painted damask stencil pattern and globally collected décor. Want even more pizzazz? Add some metallic magic with Peacock Fancy Royal Stencil Crème!
Our Annapakshi Indian Damask Stencil is an original stencil pattern based on India’s mythological white bird that is believed to live in heaven. It represents purity, prosperity and beauty. Amber beautifully interpreted this stencil with creamy white paint and light gray background in her bathroom. We think it looks pretty heavenly! How about you?
Creative customer Cammi loves her stenciled wall so much that she still gets butterflies whenever she walks into the room! Her only regret was that she wishes she had stenciled this accent wall with our Annapakshi Damask Wall Stencil sooner!
CJ Design of the Treasure Coast has a knack for elegant design with saturated color palettes and calming cool hues. Look at how she styled these three blue rooms above – she used a combination of exotic pattern and rich color that truly shows off her global chic style!
Driven by Décor had the challenge of redecorating her powder bath. It had dated wallpaper, a blah mirror and needed a relaxing color scheme. The showstopper of the entire bathroom makeover is the Annapakshi Indian Damask Wall Stencil which was used to give an allover wallpaper look on the walls in subtle, soothing greys. What a transformation!
Nomadic Decorator is always inspired by the silk material and exotic patterns of Saris. Instead of going to great lengths to create this handwoven fabric or travel all the way to India, she opted to stencil India inspired patterns onto an old wooden panel. She also used our Royal Stencil Cremes to make this panel go from flat and lifeless to glowing with metallic color. For the full tutorial, check out Inspired by Saris: A Shimmery DIY Stenciled Door.
You can also bring a dose of Indian inspired style to your furniture too! Our Annapakshi Damask Stencil looks great as an allover pattern, but also as an individual focal element. We stenciled this single design on this upholstered chair and love how the little bit of pattern gave the room some interest without overpowering it.
