Accent walls are one of the best ways to add a unique and interesting design element to your space as well as experiment with bolder and brighter pops of color. While you could certainly use a Royal Design Studio stencil to add pattern to all the walls in a room, they are perfect for creating one accent wall as well. The singular walls are a great surface to stencil individual or layered motif stencils as well as allover stencil designs that are meant to mimic wallpaper treatments. It’s the perfect way to be ‘daring, but not overbearing’. To that end, we’ve brought together nine stenciled accent wall ideas, like the above bold ebony and gold feature wall with the Uzma Circles Wall Stencil, to help inspire your next stencil project.
The super talented Carrie from Dream Green DIY wrote an article for Breathe Magazine on How to Stencil a Feature Wall. In her living room, she stenciled a small sidewall with the Endless Circles Lattice Moroccan Stencil and created not only a beautiful focal point with the color schemes and pattern, but also outlined the living room as its own space. Bravo!
Designer Trish Johnston created a laid-back bohemian vibe with a large-scale graphic pattern of the Lisboa Tile Stencil stenciled in indigo on a feature wall. Gorgeous! The room was photographed by Michael Graydon.
Add a sophisticated and fresh touch to your home with the Large Boxwood Trellis Wall Stencil. You could incorporate virtually any color scheme with this pattern for a beautiful allover wallpaper look.
Many patterns have historic meanings and the Annapakshi Indian Damask Wall Stencil was inspired by a beautiful mythological bird symbolizing divinity and beauty. It’s a perfect pattern to create an oasis for any space, including bedrooms.
Kids Rooms and Nurseries are perfect areas to incorporate a stenciled feature wall. Mixing both neutral and bright colors are perfect for the wee ones as they grow and learn.

Using a motif stencil to pattern an accent wall is a great idea – and you have many options to boot! You can use the design spaced in a random, organic way or stenciled as a repeat, allover design. Either way, you can experiment using one color or several. [Left: Love Birds Lace Damask Stencil, Right: Ornamental Flower Wall Stencil]
