Stencil Patterns Enhance A Boring Ceiling
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! Things are looking up if you hope to add new character to a room. You can easily bring visual interest by painting a stencil pattern on your ceiling. Paint and our stencil designs can give a boring ceiling presence and style. After all a beautifully decorated ceiling can complete the look of a stylish room. Today we’re going to share with you a living room makeover that was enhanced with a ceiling stencil pattern. Come take a look…
We’d like to welcome back Sallie Kjos, the interior designer behind GreyHunt Interiors. Sallie is well-known for designing interior spaces that infuse patterns and eye-catching color combinations. This time she was called in by a Client to give their living room a much needed makeover. Here is what the living room looked like before:
This peachy pink living room was begging for a stylish makeover and Sallie was happy to oblige. She put together a design plan which included stylish furnishings, a neutral colored backdrop, and bold ceiling color with an oversized geometric pattern. While wallpapering a ceiling can be a great way to add visual interest to a space, it’s expensive and a hassle to install. That’s why stencils are a great alternative. Wall stencils are an easy and inexpensive way to update a space. Sallie browsed our website and selected the Tea House Allover Stencil Pattern. This large geometric pattern has an undeniable Eastern influence and is perfect for enhancing a lackluster ceiling.
With her new stencil in hand, Sallie was ready to start her stenciling project! If you are recreating this project at home, use blue painter’s tape to hold the geometric stencil in place and paint the pattern with a dense foam roller. This particular project features a glossy black hue painted over a flat black paint color. After each section was complete, simply untape the stencil and reposition to finish the pattern on the ceiling. For more information on how to stencil, please check out our stencil tutorials. Let’s get to the fun reveal! Are you ready to see how this living room makeover turned out? Here is her living room complete with a stenciled ceiling.
We love how stencils can easily add dramatic flair to a ceiling. Now Sallie’s Client can entertain her guests in stenciled style!
