White blends ease with elegance so it’s a no brainer as to why this white-haute color is trending in many different style interiors. White is light and airy, so it can open up the smallest spaces and also can bring cohesion to a large room filled with a lot of furnishings. A monochromatic color scheme works best when there are lots of textures to catch the eye, and an all-white space is no exception! If you’re already digging this trend, then the next step towards a beautiful white space is to pick out a stencil pattern. Stencils help break up the all-white look and adds dimension, texture, and personality without overwhelming a delicate white room. Scroll down for some ideas on how you can create dazzling looks by combining stencils and the white-haute monochromatic color scheme – these white walls and furniture are anything but boring!
The first thing Northern Belle Diaries wanted to get rid of during her bedroom makeover was the “wretched beige walls”. We don’t blame her! She gave her bedroom a breath of fresh air with a white-on-white color scheme and our Chez Sheik Moroccan Wall Stencil. It’s so airy and fresh – we would love to lay here and daydream of future stencil projects! The proud owner and first-time stenciler of this bedroom says, “If you think that you wouldn’t be able to do a stencil wall, trust me when I tell you, you CAN!”
Home Made by Carmona is delighted with how perfect our Rani Paisley Indian Damask Stencil and how her DIY curtains and pillows came out. She says, “You can’t go wrong with a paisley damask! It adds a touch of something ornate to any style, but in a contemporary manner.” This bedroom is now light and airy, and the metallic paisley patterns she stenciled around the room add just the right amount of chic whimsy to the mostly white color palette.
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 B Design beautifully interpreted this stencil with creamy white paint and light gray background in her bathroom. We think it looks pretty heavenly! How about you?
DIY On the Cheap says, "I’ve always loved the idea of stenciled walls, because you can get the look of wallpaper without the hassle of removing it later. When you’re tired of the pattern, you can simply paint over it with another stencil design." We couldn't agree more! She chose a white tone on tone color scheme that lightened up the small space. Matte and gloss sheens of the same color paint create a subtle Modern Moroccan Lace Stencil pattern and relaxing look.
Sincerely, Sara D stenciled her walls with our Chez Sheik Moroccan Wall Stencil. The wallpaper pattern definitely gives the perfect finishing touch to her cute neutral kitchen! Sara says, “I love stencils because you can get the look of wallpaper without the commitment. They can easily be painted over if you grow tired of them.” If she was feeling like redoing her kitchen with a more colorful look, she can easily and inexpensively change it up with another color and stencil pattern.
White decor looks anything but basic in a living room filled with antique finds. In enchanting shades from frost to cream, an assortment of heirloom pieces blend beautifully with our Chez Sheik Moroccan Furniture Stencil and Our Storied Home’s painted table. A gentle white-on-white palette unifies this fanciful mix of contemporary pattern and vintage décor.
Chic white furniture adds a crisp, clean look in contemporary interiors. As you can see from other designers’ stencil projects, our Chez Sheik Moroccan Stencil is a popular pattern for creating the white-haute monochromatic look. This furniture stencil has a fluid grille design that complements the light and airy look that Kim Bell Interiors was envisioning.
Pretty Used Things finished off a countertop with a painted Lazy Susan. She used our Chez Sheik Moroccan Furniture Stencil in soft white and metallic pearl. This stenciled piece is sure to shine, especially when it spins and catches the light during dinnertime gatherings with friends and family!
Our White Couch wasn’t originally sure if she wanted to her cabinet to remain its original white or be painted another color. She is so happy that she stayed with her all white vision; however, she did want to add a little oomph to the piece without making it an overwhelming statement. She used our Antique Silver Royal Stencil Crème and our Casbah Trellis Moroccan Furniture Stencil for a pop of pattern that catches the eye in the right light.
Cynthia Neff added instant French flair without spending a lot at an antique store! She created the weathered look of shabby chic furniture with white and gray paint. She topped off this romantic look with French love quotes from our French Love Letters Furniture Stencil and French-inspired décor.
Are you thinking of stenciling a white accent wall or piece of furniture? Along with our stencils, we highly recommend using our metallic silver Royal Stencil Cremes or matte white Chalk Paints® by Annie Sloan to stencil this trendy neutral look.
