Unless it was in the title, you might have no idea that this space is outdoors, or that this intricate navy and white carpet is in fact not a carpet at all but a stenciled concrete floor.

That’s the power of stencils – outdoor industrial to indoor lodge!

2. Kitchen Floor

The soft light pouring into this entryway highlights the intricate design of this stenciled wall perfectly.

If the entryway was painted a simple white or even cream, the color might be lovely, but there would be no textured, bright accent like there is here.

4. Bedroom Wall

The dynamic use of solid color and accent stencil for these bedroom walls creates a bold design that makes this room incredibly unique.

Instead of an empty wall, or a wall filled with hanging decor, this stencil pattern is decor enough to add a bigtime “WOW” factor to this bedroom.

A kitchen backsplash is a fabulous place for stencil work – it’s central and noticeable enough that it can be a great kitchen accent, but small enough that it won’t make a kitchen look too busy.

This mix of showy chevron in neutral colors is the perfect pairing for home decor detail.

8. Window Shade

10. Washer and Dryer
