Creating a warm, beckoning foyer is essential for greeting guests and welcoming them into your home. It’s also important to design an inviting entry that makes you happy to be home! Pam from Simple Details recently found herself using one of our stencils to add great presence to her “boring” entrance and we were charmed by how she designed and transformed a small space with big stencil style. Read on!
Pam had a small problem — actually, it was a 4.5′ x 4.5′ foyer problem. “It was barely big enough to turn around… since there wasn’t any possibility of even a teeny piece of furniture or art, I had the small wall area… and decided to be daring,” she explains. She was inspired by a stenciled fabric project by The Hunted Interior and chose the Cheetah Spots Wall Stencil to add chic panache to her walls.
One big stenciling tip that she shared was that she ‘customized’ the stencil by taping up the spots to give them a more irregular shape and once she stenciled the wall with a stencil brush and our Flat Black Stencil Creme, she went back to fill in some of the open spots to make it a tighter pattern. Stencils are truly incredibly versatile!
“My favorite part is that our new entry is so unexpected and a bit sassy,” Pam enthuses. We agree – and we love the little twist, she gave our stencil design!

Make the most of your foyer by considering the style of your home and choose your colors and stencil pattern accordingly – and remember to have fun, too. You never get a second chance to make a memorable first impression!
