Pink and Brown Polka Dot Bedroom

March 13th, 2011

Think stencils as an easy & affordable way to finish any room.  One of the great things about stencils is that you can do them in whatever color or shade you choose.  Craft acrylic paints are the perfect choice for stenciling and with hundreds of colors from which to choose, you will usually find the perfect match to fabrics or accessories in the room.  

A great color combo for a 2011 teen bedroom – bubble gum pink and chocolate brown!  This is a teen bedroom idea with syle!  Polka Dot Style with big dots or circles scattered all over the walls!  The polka dot circles were created using a traditional wall stencil because we want to repeat them over and over.  Traditional stencils are cut on a plastic mylar which can be used multiple times and washed if necessary.  Our polka dot cirlce stencil is a sticky stencil.  It’s cut on a sticky back mylar so the stencil sticks to the wall like a post-it note eliminating the need for stencil spray adhesive.  Use the roller stenciling technique to make this job speedy.  “It’s a girl thing!” was stenciled on the wall using a one-time use vinyl stencil but you could just as easily apply a vinyl wall decal.

Girls Gone Wild

. . . wild for a pink zebra room!

Take a peak at Maddie’s new room.  She loves all things pink and zebra.  Her passion – gymnastics.  So when Grandma announced her gift for Christmas was to let the three sisters reDecorate their bedrooms, Maddie went a little wild.

A decorative painter was hired who called StencilsAndDecals to cut one-time use vinyl stencils to complete the project.  We incorporated Maddie’s Style into the room.  Maddie loves the mod look so she chose peace signs, a hip 70’s  retro style font for her name, our new Zebra Stripe border stencil and a custom gymnast design.  We then “zebrafied” a heart for the graphic boder.

The color palette – two shades of Sherwin Williams pink paint were chosen for the walls.   The top was painted with the lighter shade SW6849 Partytime and the bottom painted with SW6854 Impatient Pink. 

Our Zebra Stripes stencil was used to paint the white border for a dramatic designer look. 

The designing didn’t stop there.  Every girly loves to doodle and a custom chalkboard was installed.  Accomplish this by using either chalkboard paint or give us a call to place a custom order for chalkboard vinyl.  Chalkboard vinyl can be cut in all kinds of nifty shapes or if you choose a standard square or rectangle shape; get Dad involved and have him paint molding and add a frame as shown .

Maddie’s room is beautiful . . . just another wild, affordable, and easy way to decorate with paint!
