Stencils and Color Combinations to Steal This Cozy “Apartment Therapy” Look!
Good morning, my stencil lovin’ friends? Cutting Edge Stencils is having a T-riffic Tuesday, especially after yesterday’s NEW stencil release! Have you seen them? Make sure you check out all the newbies here and then tell us what you think in the comments below.
But getting back to today’s stencil post. We happened to have some downtime this past weekend, so were browsing one of our favorite sites, Apartment Therapy, when we stumbled upon JoAnn’s Creature Comforts Home Tour. It had us at hello (shown in the kitchen). JoAnn managed to combine a tasteful dose of bold graphic patterns, touches of mid-century modern, and one killer DIY project that made her home look both comfortable and sophisticated. Sounds pretty UN-believable, right? We thought so! And when we admire a space, we try to recreate it using our stencils and Benjamin Moore paint colors! Come meet JoAnn and let’s see how you can replicate her sophisticated style…
Stolen Item No. 1: Chevron Kitchen Rug
Cozy yet inviting is how we see this kitchen. We love how she’s added splashes of color using decor accessories. That adorable accent rug could easily be replicated with a little help from one of our stencil patterns!
To STEAL THE LOOK of the rug in this kitchen, use Cutting Edge Stencils’ Chevron Allover Stencil, a zippy striped design. Consider stenciling a color like Benjamin Moore’s buttered yam AF-230. This delicious deep orange fosters the good feelings of home and happiness, making it the perfect choice for a kitchen rug! Check out this tutorial on how to stencil a rug.
Stolen Item No. 2: Moroccan Stenciled Accent Wall
Now this look is not as hard to steal! 🙂 This gorgeous Moroccan stenciled wall happens to be one of our stencils. JoAnn added a little pattern punch to her living room by stenciling an accent wall. Do you love it? Good, then let us tell you how to get this gorgeous look!
To STEAL THE LOOK of the living room, use Cutting Edge Stencils’ Casablanca Allover Stencil. First paint your wall a neutral gray color like Benjamin Moore’s rock gray 1615 and then stencil the Moroccan print in simply white OC-117. The result as you can see is absolutely stunning! Watch this video on how to stencil an accent wall.
Stolen Look No. 3: Beautiful Birches Wall Art
We love wall art and better yet we love stenciling wall art. JoAnn’s friend crafted her the tree ink drawing that she proudly displays in her bedroom. If you love this look but don’t have a crafty friend like JoAnn does, then we have the perfect solution!
To STEAL THE LOOK of this wall art, use our Beautiful Birches Stencil in a deep, dark blue hue like Benjamin Moore’s hale navy HC-154 over a white like simply white OC-117! Easy peasy and you’ll create gorgeous looking wall art! Here’s a detailed tutorial to walk you through the steps.
We told you this cozy home tour was pretty UN-believable. See the whole house tour here.
