We have described in detail how to use the special stencil effect, so we will not dwell on this point. Our goal is to show how diverse stencil drawings can be and what decorative effect they can bring to the interior..
Stencils can be divided into two main types – a single image, which has become the most striking detail of the decor, and a repeating pattern, an ornament that can go along the entire perimeter of a room or along one of the walls..
The technique of applying stencils does not change; in the case of a repeating pattern, the template is simply transferred to the desired place. Here it is important to adhere to the sequence and outline in advance the places where the drawing will be applied..
Stencils are often offered as decoration in children’s rooms and teenage bedrooms. The choice of ready-made templates will simply amaze you, in addition, you can make a stencil yourself by finding the desired option on the Internet, printing, cutting and transferring to a fairly rigid base.
Usually, a white wall stands out under the stencil drawing, because against such a background it will look especially bright and noticeable. However, the base can be absolutely any, the main thing is that the background is monochromatic.
Black on white is a stencil classic that has remained in vogue for many years. Such a pattern, albeit not too bright, is perfect for any interior style, both modern and classical, in this regard, the main task will be to choose the appropriate template.
In ethnic interiors, stencil drawings will also be quite appropriate. You can, for example, use a traditional Moroccan ornament, an Indian cucumber or a thematic image, for example, a fish like this, typical of Chinese or Japanese styles..
Experts advise not only to carefully align the wall for the stencil drawing, but also to pre-paint it in at least two layers. Of course, you should wait until the base is completely dry..
There are stencils that can emphasize the features of the location of the house or the purpose of the room. For example, in this case, the palm tree ideally matched the light and open interior of a house located on the coast..
Moving away from traditional application and using a darker background can be a good move. Light patterns are great for decorating a neutral bedroom, which lacked flavor so much..
Any paint can be used for such a drawing. The glossy version, more shiny and noticeable, will look very interesting. Experienced designers advise applying paint with a sponge or swab, which is suitable for painting over thin details..
An example of a thematic design that is perfect for the kitchen, appealing and decorating a regular apron. You can overdo it with different colors, designers advise using no more than three shades in stencil drawings, otherwise it will turn out too colorful.
