Stenciled Tone on Tone Finishes Make for Elegant Decor | Segreto Finishes Project | Royal Design Studio Stencil 

Segreto Finishes are masters at creating neutral spaces that wow! Owner Leslie Sinclair and her team created a custom wallpaper look with the Large Entwined Trellis Stencil painted with metallics for a soft shimmer. We love how light and bright this feels, as everything seems to be reflecting off those silver touches! It's such an easy way to create a luxe look for less!

Soft tone on tone finishes for elegant wall patterns by Caroline Lizaragga 

Hospitality and commercial projects also benefit from subtle finishes. Decorative artist Caroline Lizarraga was inspired by the antique damask walls of Florentine palazzos and used -- fittingly -- the Florentine Damask Stencil in a restaurant's private dining room. It was the perfect warm, background finish for the owner's art collection.

China-based artist David Hsueh of Bella Vista Studio is a long-time fan of Royal Design Studio Stencils and uses the patterns in almost all of his projects. He used the Allover Brocade Stencil in graceful honey beige tones for a formal living room. What a beautiful way to make a space feel grand and intimate at the same time!

Inspiration for subtle, neutral wall stencil patterns | Fortuny Stencil by Royal Design Studio 

Designer and artist Rachael Goddard of Paint/Design/Décor is known for her bright and bold projects but she is also comfortable with quiet, classic stenciled wall finishes like this one, for a client's nursery. The Fortuny Stencil is inspired by the famed Fortuny silks and when combined with graphite and grey, creates a decidedly contemporary fabric wall finish. So lovely!

Slight variations in color and sheen paired with your chosen stencil pattern is the key to designing a space that balances serenity and your creativity. We hope you've enjoyed these tasteful stencil ideas for creating a home with a calm and fresh aesthetic!

How will you incorporate soft and subtle stenciled finishes in your home?
