Why Guilford Green?
According to Benjamin Moore’s press release on its 2015 color selection, “We chose Guilford Green as our 2015 Color of the Year because it can be the hero or the highlight in any room, enhancing the architectural identity of a space,” said Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director at Benjamin Moore. “Guilford Green is the perfect thread to connect nature, spaces and interiors with color schemes that signify fresh energy and growth.”

To show you how delightful this color can be stenciled on walls and in home decor, we’ve gathered up some Cutting Edge Stencils favorites!
We love the idea of painting a dresser in a lovely green hue just like Kim Myles did with the piece shown below. After painting it, she stenciled the Indian Inlay Stencil Kit pattern in a stylish white.
We also think it’s the perfect color for an accent pillow. Use the Diamond Damask stencil kit from Paint-A-Pillow to easily create a DIY designer pillow. Choose the white fabric along with the olive green paint option. We think it’s oh-so-gorgeous!
You can’t go wrong with using this silvery green to enhance a plain frame. 302WoodWorks created this adorable frame using a color similar to Guilford Green and our Polka Dot card size stencil.
What better way to embrace the trendiest color of 2015 than to paint it on your wall and ceiling! Stacy, the blogger behind Not Just a Housewife used our Anna Damask Stencil in a soothing shade of green to add a beautiful pattern to her ceiling.
