The stencil phase

image

As if the house were not going slowly enough, I have been giving more thought than may be healthy to this stencil pattern, which I saw in a church in Budapest not long ago. They put it in a relatively small area and I have for some reason been wanting to tart up the WC. On the down side, well, let’s face it, stencils, no sane person does that any more. Is there an up side? Even if I scale back the colors?

  1. I like that

    Me, well I am doing a very little judiciously placed stencilling, but then I am no sane person.
    If it suits, then stuff the trends, that’s my mantra now

      1. I like the colours on the image you posted actually.
        You could always soften them after if they don’t work in situ; easier than trying to brighten them if too subtle.
        Personally I am rebelling a little against acres of greige everywhere…the kitchen will be greigeish but the salon will be warmer shades.

    1. Maybe I’ll just chicken out and put in wallpaper… Mostly I figure I have too much time to think while I wait to get on with the business of actually living in the house.
