Update on Stencil Wall

23 Sep

Happy Friday!

Well unfortunately after much discussion the stenciling of the hallway is not going to happen and I did try!

But with the gorgeous plaster my husband slaved over and not to mention the uneven walls and 4 doorways it sadly was not in it’s future.

The good news is the kitchen nook has been chosen instead!

This space as always seemed plain to me, so I’m really looking forward to vamping it up.

Oh and here’s a picture of the stencil I chose

It’s called Casablanca Trellis by Royal Design Studios

Wish me (us) luck!

Syroco Mirrors

22 Sep

You all know I can’t pass up a fabulous mirror, so when I saw this Syroco beauty I just had to have it!

And the best part was…it was FREE!!!

It was sitting all lonesome in our shop for months and was screaming for some TLC.

Now for the fun part! What color should I paint this baby?

Here are some options I was thinking

As gorgeous as this is, I think turquoise might be over kill in the living room. I’m pretty much obsessed with blue though.

However I wouldn’t mind a punchy yellow.

Loving the sexiness of a glossy black.

Love the white very chic.

Which color do you vote? Do you prefer it gold or agree with me on painting it?

Stencil Wall Approved!

Happy Friday!!

I’m very excited about this post and even more excited to get started on this project.

Last night I slowly asked Ryan if I could stencil the hallway, concerned he would firmly say NO, considering the plaster he did on the walls took some time and labor. To my surprise he said Sure, I was of course screaming with joy inside.

I’ve always wanted to stencil a wall and planned to get started in the nursery once the babe was on his/her way.

Well since that hasn’t happened yet, I thought the hallway would be the perfect space to start up some practice.

Here’s what the hallway looks like now, in case you forgot.

It’s actually really small so I’m hoping this will be a good gradient for me. The only hard part might be the four doorways and wall heater, yeah didn’t think about those.

My first thought on the design was this gorgeous number at Beach Bungalow 8

Love me some imperial trellis. But sadly after much research online, it looked as though I’d be pulling my hair out as opposed to jumping for joy while doing this pattern. BTW the above is actually wallpaper, and it’s $200 a roll! so I only wish.

Here are some other patterns I like

This one came out so good! by Vintage Revivals, love the paint colors she chose as well.

This one came out super pretty too over at IHeart Organizing

Anyway…looks like I have some decision making to do. I definitely know I want the colors to be white and dark gray, so at least that steps done.

Do you have any favorites?

Have you thought about stenciling a wall in your home?
