DIY Dressing Room Stencil Project: Royal Design Studio

In exchange for a stencil from Royal Design Studio,

I am bringing you this promotional post!

After introducing this sweet little dressing room

of mine to you last spring, I knew I would

eventually create a statement wall with

something subtle…something tone-on-tone.

I turned to

Royal Design Studio

after falling in love with their

Fortuny stencil.

Inspiration for subtle, neutral wall stencil patterns | Fortuny Stencil by Royal Design Studio

Royal Design Studio

Isn’t it gorgeous in the nursery above?
I do love a professional grade stencil, and you
may recall another French script stencil project

of mine with Royal Design.

Ta daaaaaa!

I love the impact of the lacy design,

and it took less than 2 hours

to complete it yesterday.

A couple of my collages mingle with

art, antique French documents,

and vintage jewelry.

Besides the glorious stencil, the only other

supplies I required were a small foam roller

and watered down soft grey latex paint

(Martha Stewart’s Sharkey Gray).

I played around adhering different items

to the wall, and guess what I learned?

There isn’t anything that doesn’t work against

the Fortuny…even my treasured original Lulu DK

watercolor painting with its bold floral works.

The stencil’s pattern is reminiscent of the famous Italian

Fortuny silks, and the classically quiet

combination of muted grey on white

evokes a lovely hushed elegance.

This stencil, a myriad of equally lovely ones,

and a slew of inspiration can be yours

at Royal Design Studio.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Dear Michelle,
    The Fortuny is so elegant and almost ethereal. I absolutely love the way it looks!

    I am so SO glad I found your blog! Your dressing room is so lovely! You create the warm and enveloping feeling with your decor, which I love. I am also swooning over the stenciled wall and ghost chair too – they really make the room.

    That is one gorgeous wall. I'm making a not for that stencil. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    How pretty! I bookmarked the stencil for my next painting project

    Gosh it's so pretty and delicate (the stencil wall and the whole room)! I've always wanted to stencil a wall. We've recently moved cities and are in a rental, but when we do (eventually) get our own place, I'll be looking for a wall to stencil-makeover. Bookmarking this for inspiration 🙂

    Love that color combination with this stencil design!

  15. December 10, 2013 / 2:07 am

    Oh my your wall is so lovely! I must find a sweet little spot to try this out, it's just perfection with the ghost chair. So soft, so pretty, love….

    No idea how I missed this post so I'm totally late but I couldn't not say how FAB it looks. I love the soft design, it's so very you. It must be such a pleasure to be in there. Gorgeous xxx
