DIY: Geometric Stencil Heaven.

Remember last week when I posted that Cavern Arrow wallpaper? Well, a blog reader and blogger in her own right Ombre Ombre  emailed me and told me about these badass stencils she found on etsy called Olive Leaf Stencils. OH HOLY AWESOME.

(I literally wore the outfit translation of this room today. Im going to show you later!) 

I obviously picked all the ones I liked the best, but they had a much larger variety with a bunch of styles… not just these bold geometrics.

So all of you people that claim you rent and can’t wallpaper, DO THIS! Its so cheap($35 per stencil)  and cool, and if you screw it up, you can just paint over it.

I really would love to do this somewhere, but WHERE? I may have a tiny little wall that I could do it on in my kitchen. OR, I could scrap the hummingbird paper in the kids room and do this in a white/aqua combo.

Another idea, is to take the stencil and do something more intricate, like this:

This is wallpaper by the Paris based  company called Minakani Walls.  It’s obviously much MORE intense than the stenciled walls, but you could take the stencil and fill in each triangle in its own color. You could also do it on a background of something other than white.

These are just ideas… now lets see what we all do with them. Someone do this and report back to me please!

In the meantime, I’ll think of a project I can do. Even using these for Ikea Hacking would be amazing!

I’ll keep you posted- have a great day!

  4. Okay, you have totally blown me away with this one. And that is rare in blogland these days. Thanks for the awesome link!!!

  5. love these! So cool! I have been wanting to do some type pf stenceling to my guest bathroom.

  6. These are great! I have seen that last image around the blogging world recently and love the muted colours and tones – so out of the ordinary and interesting!
    Those stencils are lovely, gonna check out the Etsy shop right away…

  7. wonderful, and check out royal design studio and stencil library and wallovers for more geometrics. FYI: make sure to pay attention the thickness of the stencil and the size. With an overall pattern it goes much faster with a large stencil and there is less cleaning of the stencil. If the stencil is too thin it is more difficult to use, clean and more seepage.

  8. i’m obsessed with that minakani wallpaper.

  9. Holy freaking moly! The little gears in my head are already turning… Need a wall stat.
