Cutting Edge Stencils

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

So, I've been considering what to do with our existing powder room.  One day down the road (the key words being "down the road") we plan on replacing the powder room with a laundry area and creating a full guest bath in our current laundry.  So as much as I would love to turn my powder room into a beautiful jewelbox, I just can't justify spending money on a fancy wallpaper just to rip it down in a few years time.  Plumbing fixtures and lighting can be moved, but not wallcovering.

Cutting Edge Stencils to the rescue.  They have some great patterns that I think would work well as feature walls, powder room walls etc.  Not your typical Americana Mary Englebreit looking stencils, these ones are way radder (is that a word?), funkier, and stylish. Here are some options I'm considering (check out their website, this is just a sampling of what I like, but there are tons of other patterns).
Now, I just have to figure out what colors to use.  Maybe shades of grey?  Tans?  dark sea blues?  Considering my recent aversion to color, I'm hoping I don't also develop an aversion to pattern.


  1. maybe i should try stencils too...avoid anymore wallpaper hell.

  2. These are gorgeous Jess. I love the green one.

  3. Great picks! I love the first one with metallic silver!

  4. I bought the top one for my master bedroom, but have yet to put it on my wall! I wanted something subtle, so an interior design friend suggested using a clear coat polyurethane, so that it just shimmers in the pattern. I can't wait to put it in my master!
