Shades of Sea Glass: Color Combinations for Stenciling

Sea glass is the beautiful,  natural result of something “not so pretty” OR natural: littering. Glass bottles and jars that are tossed or washed into the sea get broken up and tossed about in the currents. Over time, the sharp edges of the shards of glass get worn down and the surface becomes etched by constant contact with waves, water, and sand.

Sea glass can be found in many colors, but some of the most lovely are soft shades of blue/green.Green-and-Gray

This beautiful photo of a set of doorways in Old Havana, as seen in the current issue of House Beautiful caught my eye. Not only because I LOVE historical architecture, and anything that looks distressed, crusty, rusty, faded, well-used and well-loved. The colors also reminded me of blue/green sea glass, and we have been using these colors quite a bit in our inspirational stencil pattern photos….

5000-Encantada-Allover-Stencil

Our new Encantada Damask wall stencil from The Hearst Castle Collection.

Wall Stencil-Allover vine

Our delicate Oriental Vine allover wall stencil.

3025-Endless-Circle-Stencil

Yes, this one isn’t blue or green, but I had to include it, because the Endless Circle Lattice stencil pattern is shown in the door grillwork above, and the black and white add a certain “punch” to the page, don’t you think?

3080L-Lg-Linked-In-Allover-Stencil

Back to blue, the Linked In modern wall stencil looks very fresh on a white wall….

Wall Stencil-Tulip Vine

…and the Large Phoebe’s Tulip Vine stencil (also from The Hearst Castle Collection) is perhaps the freshest Spring look of all! Authentic sea glass is becoming more and more rare, but you can certainly bring the soft colors into your home or decorative painting project with the right shades of paint!

  5. I think that what you published was actually very reasonable.However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier title?I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid, however suppose you added something to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Taloomball Chanel 7 is alittle boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how theycreate news headlines to get people to click. You mightadd a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got tosay. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
