Stenciled floors

Again, a project I would love to do..but this DIY will have to go on my massive list of “House projects I get to do when we own our house”

I have been really into lace stencils lately.. They look incredible on furniture & walls too.

Chevron striped floors are a huge trend right now. Pale grey or blue would be so cute in a nursery.

The above yellow/orange & white pattern was made by Paisley & Wallpaper

These bold black and white stripes are to die for… If I had my way these would be in my bathroom. I’m highly obsessed with stripes.

If you have stairs in your house, why not stencil them?!

I love the alternating Moroccan designs. Check out their tutorial.

Do you have the guts to stencil your floor?? Stenciling is definitely more permanent than just buying a bold rug & calling it a day. What do you think?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
