Before & After: Stencil an Inviting Entryway

Entryway Before Stenciling | Royal Design Studio

An entryway is the first impression guests receive when entering your home. A great way to make it warm and inviting is with a beautiful allover pattern from Royal Design Studio Stencil. Sara of Sincerely Sara D recently helped a friend update her foyer with stencils. Let’s take a look at how easily a simple stencil pattern and a new color pallet transform this entrance!

For this project, Sara chose to go with the Marrakech Medallion Stencil because it mimicked the glass pattern on the double front doors. She replaced the dark Ochre of the walls with  a matte pale gray paint – Valspar’s Woodsmoke – to open up the space and lighten up the room. She used an even paler shade of gray – Valspar’s Seashell Gray – for the medallion stencil. However, if you’d like a subtle shimmer in your stencil pattern, we recommend our metallic Royal Stencil Cremes. They are extremely easy to use and can cover large surfaces in small quantities. No matter what paint you use, just be sure to use our recommended dry brush technique!

Sara wanted the entryway walls to have a wallpaper effect. So once almost the entire room was stenciled, she cut the stencil into two parts – one part was about 1/3rd while the other was 2/3rd. She used these halves to place some “run off” pattern along the baseboard, ceiling and around the doorways for a free flowing wallpaper effect.

Sara says, “The room looks completely different thanks to a little paint – and a stencil!”

We agree, Sara! Sara’s blog post Painted Stencil Entryway has adorable pictures of the new entryway, so be sure to check it out.
