Have you tried to create a neutral color palette only to end up with a room that is a lifeless sea of beige? A room that is not so much soothing but a complete snooze? Wake up the neutral color palette in your room with shimmery metallics to prevent your style from falling flat. It’s easy to enhance a neutral color scheme by adding a touch of metallic magic. Take your color cue from the existing decor, but choose metallic details in a complementary shade to introduce subtle sparkle. Metallics such as Royal Stencil Cremes, metallic foils, and metal leaf shine their brightest when paired with pattern and Royal Design Studio Stencils. Check out these neutral palette stencil ideas that make your home shine…

Lori Porter says, “My friend’s daughter was going to have her wedding reception at their home. She wanted to update her living room a little, so I suggested doing something with her bookshelves and mantel. We picked out a metallic silver for the book shelves with a sparkle white wash. We painted the back with the Benjamin Moore color wet cement. We wanted to dress it up a little bit, so I chose the Classic Damask Stencil. I wanted a paint that wouldn’t clash with the metallic silver so I chose Antique Silver Stencil Creme Paint. This paint is wonderful to work with. It goes on so smooth and eliminates bleeding under the stencil. I think this stencil is very classic and changed the looks tremendously from the flat white.”
