As we move away from the cold Winter months and into Spring, you may be looking for some new refurbishment and redecorating projects to freshen up your home. Any room can be updated with a great interior paint to suit vintage, modern and shabby chic design - you can see our full range of premium paints here - but if you're looking for more than a fresh new hue, the best way to revamp your rooms and furniture is with a stylish stencil design. Wall and furniture graphics look great, are bang on trend and add a touch of detail and individuality to your home. If you're interesting in incorporating some stencils into your home but are not sure how to go about it, Eclectic at Home have some specially put together designer tips to help you decide!
Brilliant throwback designs that hark back to classic eras of home décor. These carefully chosen stencil ideas all originate from traditional European origins. Ornate and timelessly classic, French stencils instantly give your kitchen walls a new lease of life. Great for wall space above the cooker and work surfaces or to jazz up the room around the kitchen table area, these florid and sophisticated designs bridge the gap between retro and modern when combined with a great Autentico Superior paint such as a shabby chic French Grey that is also water repellent and scratch resistant - perfect for those frequently used work areas.
Easily the most enduring and versatile pattern for interior decorating, the stylised and symbolic lily design has long been a feature on fabric but has never been more in vogue for stenciling than it is right now. We know how well it works on walls and hallways, but we recommend rejuvenating the tops of your cabinets, bedside tables or chest of drawers with this Fleur De Lys stencil that has been modernised with subtle lattice structural details. You could also customise further by spraying the stencil over the front of individual draws and repaint the rest of the furniture for a more striking and updated look.
Moroccan style is right on trend at the moment, the royal arch shaped designs will add a grandeur and air of class to any room. This is why we recommend this brilliantly exotic and authentic stencil design for your living room. This is an absolutely great choice if you are after a minimalist look and want to be bold and use some deep contrasting colours to coat your walls with.
This range of stencils includes six different patterns, with flavours of everything from Art-Deco to Spanish inspired ornate patterns. These various stencils would work great for different themed rooms that require more precise redecoration jobs such as staircase steps, drawer fronts, doors and panel detail.
Heavily influenced by traditional Spanish patterns, this stencil is made to mimic the old-style ceramic tiles of Spain but with a contemporary twist - would be perfect for kitchen floors and also suited to a range of different interior floors.
