Stencils are the chameleons of the design world – they easily adapt to any decor style, color scheme and pattern placement. One of the most versatile ways to use a stencil is as a Wall Motif. A Wall Motif is a singular stencil treatment that can be organically placed in any pattern designation and is adaptable to any surface. Create stencil art with single accents or stenciled randomly across a wall to create an allover stencil pattern – the beauty is that you decide the pattern placement and finish! Royal Design Studio has a Wall Art & Motif Stencils Collection as well as many other stencils that would work perfectly as well. Let’s take a look at a few inspiring projects with wall motifs!
A stenciled spot motif stencil finish is perfect for feature accent walls, furniture, flooring, fabrics and more! You can repeat to create an allover pattern stencil design and if creating a random design, you can cluster the pattern as well as stencil a single design in another – all on the same wall!
The patterns also look great stenciled in different paint colors using our stencil brushes and stencil cremes as well as combining it with decorative paint treatments! We share a great tip for using either pieces of tape or stenciled proofs on paper to lay out your wall motif stencil design on the wall starting to stencil in the Stencil How To: Create a Drop Shadow Effect for a Crowning Touch. If you cut the tape the same size as the stencil, you can easily fine tune the placement of your pattern before you start, ensuring stencil success!
Whether using a one layer or multi-layered design, a stencil offers multiple pattern possibilities to create creative yet structured custom wallpaper looks or as a strong singular focal point. Even if using a pattern from the Allover Damask Stencils Collection, you can use one of the single designs within the repeat pattern to create a random motif as well. All the stencils are multi-purpose and enable anyone to become highly skilled at adapting the patterns to fit the right project time and again. We hope we’ve inspired your creativity today.
