Stenciling a DIY project is not only fun, it's also one of the best, budget-friendly ideas to spruce up your home! But don't take OUR word for it! Sherry and John Petersik, the lovely duo behind Young House Love, made sure to include doable, affordable stenciling projects in their super-popular debut book, Young House Love: 243 Ways to Show Your Home Some Love. Whose stencil patterns did they pick to showcase in their featured stencil projects? Royal Design Studio!
The 300-page book is filled to the brim with design ideas, step-by-step tutorials and includes more than 400 images to help guide your creative endeavors. One of the stencil projects, Stencil Your Walls, showcased our Lisboa Tile Stencil, whose pattern was inspired by the beautiful tiled designs of Portugal. It's part of our Allover Ethnic Stencil Collection, which feature globally-inspired designs -- adding Bohemian Chic to your feature walls has never been easier! It's a perfect design for floors, fabric, furniture and entire rooms as well!
A second stencil project, Stencil a Sisal or Jute Rug, featured our popular Peacock Fancy Furniture Stencil with a strong color against a neutral, low-pile rug texture. Looks fantastic -- and wouldn't you love to see this pattern pop instead of a blah floor covering that fades into the background? Both projects include full instructions along with tips to help you achieve a perfect result.
Sherry and John's book was recently named by Amazon as one of the 10 Best DIY & Design books of 2012 in addition to being a Barnes & Noble Book of the Year and a New York Times Bestseller. The book's video teaser above showcases not only a few peeks into the book but also their bubbly, easy-going and creative approach to design. We're honored they chose our stencils to showcase and we hope that their inspiration can lead YOU to try a few creative stencil projects of your own!
