Disney’s Frozen is skating its way through the hearts of everyone young and old. Top that off with the recent Oscar wins, and it seems this winter flick is only going to get hotter in 2014! What is the appeal? Of course the music is powerful and the plot is engaging, but it is also simply a stunning visual treat! It has fresh colors and detailed patterns swirling around in every scene. The animators have truly outdone themselves this time.
But, I’m sure in your household, Frozen’s appeal is more focused on the characters themselves. Have you found that all your little girl can talk about is trying to decide – on a daily basis – if she is more like Elsa or Anna? If so, we’ve thought of a fun way for you to bond with her over a weekend project – stencil her bedroom (you know, her most important place in the whole world) to reflect her favorite character!
Unlike hanging wallpaper, stenciling is the easy way to add pattern and color to any room. Plus, it's affordable and simply changed later on. You can actually share the experience with your daughter and spend the weekend taking great satisfaction in knowing that you did it yourself - and you did it together!
Searching through our Stencil Collection with our design team, here are some cool design ideas for stenciling a girl’s room inspired by the movie Frozen!
For the Elsa fans out there, we used our Starry Moroccan Night Stencil. This simple yet delicate, all-over stencil is inspired by the starry night skies of Marrakech. However, with this color scheme derived from Elsa’s beautiful dress, this stencil perfectly resembles beautiful snow-flakes, don’t you think?
For the Anna fans out there, we used our elegant Large Flourish Allover Stencil and again, pulled the colors from her bodice, cape and skirt. This stencil features large open scrollwork, making it suitable for larger rooms and areas, or smaller rooms where you wish to create a bold, graphic statement.
And for the adults out there that can’t get enough of the colors and pattern too, these Frozen-inspired designs can be adapted throughout the home.
To create the vertical stripes that would give a wallpaper effect, we were inspired from Anna’s beautiful bottle green dress. Our beautiful Swedish Floral Wall Stencil Border fit perfectly to create the classic look. This pattern also comes in an allover stencil: Swedish Floral Allover Stencil that can achieve a similar paneled look.
And here to recreate the adorable dining area, we used our Large Entwined Trellis Stencil. This stencil would look equally beautiful when lined along the hallways.
