Cutting Edge Stencils was thrilled when Benjamin Moore featured our Acanthus Allover stencil in the 2012 Color Trends series. We have already completed a number of stencil tutorials using their color of the year, Whythe Blue HC-143, and we love the results! The wonderful folks at Benjamin Moore agree with us that painting stencils on a wall adds so much to a space in terms of color and design. In their words, “…a weathered, artistic stencil pattern and a soothing blue ceiling soften the room’s overall formality and add visual interest.” Don’t you just love the Earth and Sky color selection? Cutting Edge Stencils’ Acanthus Allover stencil looks sublime in Fresh Olive against the deep Sharkskin background tone.
Check out this short video of color expert, Sharon Grech, giving some great color and design tips!
Like Sharon said, with wall stenciling, you can make any wall into a piece of artwork. Stencils truly are the perfect tool to do so. By painting stencils on your wall, you save time, money and can say, “I did that!” with pride and a sense of accomplishment.
