Stencil Decor and Home Design Blogs

Being the busy little bee that I am, I thought I would just point you in some inspiring directions around the web today to some fabulous home design blog posts that have special meanings to me.

Palazzo-Corsini

Debbie Hayes has a beautiful eye and a beautiful blog, FauxPlusDesign, where she shares her decorative art, photography, travels, and interesting musings about all of the above. This post features some super juicy photos of the private tour of the Palazzo Corsini in Florence, Italy that was arranged on our decorative painting adventure last October. We were honored that the lovely Contessa Corsini herself led us through the palace, sharing her family history and great taste in art and architecture! Debbie’s photos truly capture the splendor of this amazing place on the bank of the Arno river.

Modello-stencils-fauxology

Regina Garay has a fabulous design and decorating blog, Fauxology, where she shares daily inspiration on design and color trends, decorative painting, and a whole host of other visual goodies. It’s a “must read” for professional creatives and design devotees. All this week, she is featuring groin ceilings, and TODAY’S feature just happens to be on using our Modello Custom Stencil Patterns for artful decoration of this architectural asset.

Stencils-Hearst Castle

A great new blog discovery for me this past weekend (thanks Anna Sadler!) is ArchitectDesign. Stefan Murray has recently been featuring a series of posts and extensive photo essays on Hearst Castle. Now, as you may recall, Modello Designs and Royal Design Studio have recently been selected to become licensees for the Hearst Castle Collection, and I am currently in the process of developing stencil patterns based on the endless array of decorative painting and design details that are contained in this national treasure. If you haven’t been to Hearst Castle, you can travel through Stefan’s blog posts. Enjoy the tour!

  1. It was our pleasure to feature Modellos during Groin Ceiling Week on Fauxology. Loved all the images of different inspiring works! Thanks so much for the mention — and your kind words about our blog (blush)!

  2. Thank you once again Melanie! Wow, my blog stats were zooming between your mentions and Regina’s!

  3. Melanie, when I look at these marvellous photos I just could jump into the car and drive off to Italy in a minute…very inspirational – not to speak of the better weather…
