How to Highlight a Focal Point With Stencils
Use a medley of motifs to frame a headboard—or a mirror, a window, even a cased opening—with style
Stencils lend themselves to wallpaper-like repeats. But combine a few different ones and you can create a custom pattern shaped to surround and highlight a favorite feature of your room. Once you've practiced stenciling on paper—or in a spot that's easy to repaint—the work goes quickly, with results so magical that you may end up stenciling around every bed in the house.
