5 New Ways to Stencil Animal Print in your Home!

5 New Ways to Stencil Animal Print in your Home | Royal Design Studio

We know animal print should be done “tastefully” or in “small doses”, but today, we want to show you how to take your home for a real walk on the wild side. These bloggers broke all the rules when they decorated with our animal print stencils – and it came out fierce! They stenciled in unexpected locations or with unique color combos to make these stencil patterns their own.

Stencile Foyer with Cheetah Spots Stencil by Royal Design Studio via Simple Details

1. Wild Entryway

Pam of Simple Details wanted her entryway to make a ‘wild’ statement. She had her eye on a particular wallpaper until she found our Cheetah Spots Stencil. The wallpaper was not only pricey but cumbersome to apply. Pam loves how our stencil gave her foyer the unexpected, sassy wallpaper look at a fraction of the cost!

I’m all about getting a high-end look for less and not having to remove wallpaper if I can avoid it!”

Be sure to take a look at the beautiful Foyer Reveal on her blog post for more details about the project.

2. Roaring Hallways

Melanie of the Painted Chandelier was impressed with the look of Pam’s foyer (prior project) and decided to get a similar look for her upstairs hallway. She picked these colors so the Cheetah spots make an impact without being too obtrusive. The hallway is now roaring with character and pizzaz, don’t you think? Check out her blog post, Antelope Pattern Inspired Hallway Makeover for more images and several stencil tips.

3. Fierce Curtains

Kristen of the Hunted interior stenciled our Cheetah Spots Stencil on Ritva Drapery Panels from IKEA to add ferocity to her chic living room. She used acrylic paint to stencil these curtains and recommends mixing it with a textile medium to lessen the “crunch factor”. Or you could also try out our specially formulated Stencil Cremes which are soft, opaque and permanent on many surfaces, including fabrics.

4. Fearless Bedroom

Dare to be bold! Experiment with bright contrasting colors like Jeannie of Maxwell House Interiors did with our ‘Tiger Stripes Allover Stencil’. She stenciled the tiger stripes with Glidden’s “Pink Flamingo” on “Misty Aqua”  base paint to give a ferocious revamp to her twin daughters’ room.

5. Kitchen on the Prowl

Want to sneak in some unexpected animal print? Check out this NYC apartment kitchen! Danielle of Tilton Fenwick used our Zebra Stripes Allover Stencil in a stealthy shade of blue over a creamy neutral base to decorate her kitchen. The light colors helped her visually open up an otherwise smaller room, while keeping the subtle vibe alive! For more pictures of her apartment, see her interview with House Beautiful.

Royal Design Studio Wall Stencils and Paint Supplies for DIY Projects


  1. Thanks for featuring my hallway! I love the impact & interest the Cheetah Spots stencil made in this space of our home, while remaining neutral 🙂 Love the way the other bloggers used the various stencils, as well !

  2. The pleasure is all ours Melanie! It makes us smile each time we see our stencils make such creative, fun projects possible! Thank you for sharing it 🙂

  3. I saw in previous comments that someone said you cannot use this stencil in a bathroom. Something to do with semi-gloss paint. I’d really love to do this in my bathroom though. Do the royal design studio creme paints work over semi gloss? Or could I just change the finish of the base paint in that room? Please let me know what you recommend. 🙂
