Make a room special with the texture of shiplap, board and batten, wainscoting, or panels! These wall additions surged in popularity in recent years, thanks in large part to Joanna Gaines of Magnolia and HGTV. And for good reason: They add character, dimension, texture and warmth to walls. With the right tools and a (little) bit of know-how, most of these treatments can be applied by novice DIY-ers without too much expense or heartbreak.
To “top it off”, you can add a pop of pattern above your new DIY shiplap, board and batten, wainscoting, or molding. Painting Wall Stencil Designs from Royal Design Studio above these areas will actually help to visually enlarge your room.
After browsing through Royal Design Studio’s Wall Stencils, Thrift Diving took a double take when she saw the Mansion House Grille Trellis Wall Stencil. She says, “Mansion House Grille Trellis Wall Stencil grabbed my attention immediately. There was something sooooo pretty about the metalwork-inspired design. And since it’s so new, I knew it wouldn’t be some cookie-cutter design that you see smeared all over Pinterest.” Walls stencils are so great because you can really get creative and make the space all your own. She knew this space would be the perfect place to experiment with bolder decorating and DIY trim and molding.
Kim Power Style wanted to give new life to her home office, a place where she spends her time almost daily. Kim decided to install DIY board and batten to add character and charm to this little room. Once finished, she knew she wanted a little “surprise” above it to give this farmhouse board and batten a modern spin. She redecorated it to match her Modern Coastal Farmhouse style with the Floral Fireworks Wall Stencil. She says, “Wallpaper can be pretty pricey even for a relatively small space so I decided on stenciling. There are so many gorgeous patterns at Royal Design Studio and when you add the color factor, the possibilities are endless!”
@rachelgronskei decorated her little girl’s nursery in a quick weekend. She says, “The Esperanza Lace Wall Stencil from Royal Design Studio really made the room pop. Ella doesn’t know it… but she needed some shiplap in her life.” Don’t we all??
“I can’t say enough good things about the Cheetah Spots Wall Stencil from Royal Design Studio. It’s totally transforming the space and I’m in luuuvvvvv…. 💕” – @preppybohemianathome. Unlike expensive wallpaper, our wall stencils can be painted in any color palette and are budget-friendly!
Our Fabric Damask Wall Stencil in a gray and silver color scheme above a classic chair rail molding instantly creates the look of traditional elegance in Alana Elston’s dining room makeover. The white trim brings along a sense of refinement that pairs well with a nice dinner!
A rust orange wall finish stenciled with the Villa Border Stencil in gold instantly adds warmth to this vintage glam room. Instead of using this stencil as a traditional border around the wall or ceiling, Ruby Rose Studio chose to paint the pattern as vertical stripes along the wall. Now this is a creative way to add soft pattern to the space as well as draw the eye upward, making the wall appear higher!
Dare to dine in this jaw-dropping dining room? Creative Wall Designs turned this space into a show-stopper with our Elsabet Trellis Wall Stencil. This wall stencil is a dramatic design when stenciled in black and the off-centered oval shapes painted with a surprising spot of metallic shimmer. The pattern, paint, and tufted wall paneling definitely gives this dining room the look of Old Hollywood glam!
This dining room makeover by Ruby Rose Studio features a metallic green ceiling that shimmers and reflects the ambient and natural lighting. The walls above the chair rail molding feature an embossed Flourish Allover Wall Stencil pattern in dark chocolate and metallic green. Below the chair rail, Ruby Rose Studio has created a tortoiseshell motif using layers of mottled Venetian plasters. The white trim provides a striking pop of contrast.
Creative customer Cammi loves her stenciled wall pattern above her board and batten so much that she still gets butterflies whenever she walks into the room! Her only regret was that she wishes she had stenciled this accent wall with our Annapakshi Damask Wall Stencil sooner!
