Since painting my entry white, I have had a few people over and all of them had said something like this: "why is it so bare in here?" or "you are not just going to keep it white, are you?"
To be honest I love the fresh feeling of the white paint. As I was painting it, I was dealing with the shock in my head that I was painting a wall white. Since I have moved from the rental with all contractor flat white walls, I am pretty sure I swore to myself that I would never have white walls again! So I have been toying with many ideas in my head. This is a great room to add some texture and/or a statement. First impression of the inside of the house, and it is clearly defined as a space.
But just what do I do?
This image is still staying with me. Probably because I already have the stencil so in my mind this would be very low cost. But, I am not sure I want to go back to this pattern.
I found this image a couple of weeks ago and have been in love ever since. I love the organic texture and movement... but also love that it looks like it would be the easiest DIY ever!
I am also thinking totally opposite would keep it calm and refreshing. So maybe a tone on tone stencil with a little bit of glam would be nice too! I would do a slightly off white stencil with an addition of some pearliness.
This pattern is super simple, but still makes a statement. It is not super busy... so that is a plus.
I also have this stencil, and still love it. Although I have been thinking about using it in my bedroom, a black and white pattern would make a huge statement in the entry.
What is your pick?
Add texture or add boldness?
