Stenciled Hall Reveal & Giveaway CLOSED

Hey friends! I am so thrilled to be able to share this space in our home with you all today!  This space was not without its challenges (plus I am the worst decision maker ever) so this progress has been nothing short of amazing and I already anticipate some tweaking here and there.
 
 
You may remember awhile back, in the fall, I stenciled our entry using a gorgeous wall pattern from Cutting Edge Stencils. Well, last month they got back in touch with me and offered to send over one of their new designs. We all unanimously chose this Otomi stencil based on Mexican tribal textiles.




 
This stencil was huge (which has both pros and cons) and has a definitive hand drawn feel.



 
 

 
Here is what our upstairs hallway looked like after I had cleared out the space, patched up holes and touched up paint. I know. BORING.

 
Here was my inspiration for the room. I wanted something classic to the home, but that would give the space character and personality.



Also, just in case you are wondering, here are the colors for the space...


 
Anyway, I decided to just stencil the upper third of the walls. It's a bold and busy pattern and I didn't want it to take over the room. The easy part of the stenciling was that I was just able to use a small roller over the majority of the space.  This was super quick and efficient. I had a little bit more difficulty getting along the doorways and in the tighter spots, so my husband helped out by holding some of the stencil for me while I painted (remember, I told you it was seriously, huge)!
 
I think that the Collingwood is a nice compliment to our almost white Cloud Cover Walls.


 

 
 
There were a few places where I had to adjust/touch up my stenciling, but overall I was super pleased with the results.


 
Also, you may notice the board and batten! Squeal! Since I only wanted to stencil the top portion of the room we came up with this option for the bottom. I'm not going to write another post with details of it as we used the same materials and techniques as in our Planked Dining Room Walls (just different measurements).






 
Also new, is this sideboard I recently painted. I'll share way more of it next week because you just have to see the before and after.


 
 

 
One last thing...would you like a stencil, too? Cutting Edge would love to give you one! The winner will receive one stencil of their choosing (value up to $50). Open to U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY! To enter just leave me a comment below telling me which stencil is your favorite. Giveaway will be open until Thursday, March 6th at 9 a.m. EST.

  10. The walls look SO GOOD! Beautiful job! And the planking is perfect, too! Awesome! I looked on the site for the stencils....and there are SO many great ones!, but I think I would choose the Verde Damask......I have a Victorian era house, and that would suit it perfectly! Thanks for the chance!

  18. I love so many of their stencils, but if I had to pick one, I'd pick the Verde Damask Stencil. Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ohhhh. So hard to choose. I love the Otomi, the Birch trees and the Japanese Peonies. If I had to choose one it would prob. be the Otomi because it would go well in my kitchen or my upstairs bathroom.

  20. Two things: I just saw your post on the Redoux Interiors Link Party. What a fantastic job you did. Secondly, I'm delighted to be on time -- for once -- for a giveaway. I think the Virginia Creeper stencil is lovely. Thanks for the chance to win. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey

  25. love your hallway! Looks amazing! I love the new stencil Navajo all over wall stencil! But I also am digging the stencil you used!

    ReplyDelete
  26. oh, it looks so great! I LOVE that stencil and how you muted down the playfulness of it with the subdued colors. And I'm always a fan of board and batten. I keep going back and forth between wallpaper and a stencil for my den (assuming I ever get around to doing either!). I peeked over there, and I'm really liking the look of the peacock feather stencil.....

  27. Love how it all turned out and that rug is a great pop of color against the neutral wall. I love the Japanese Peonies All Over stencil! So great! xo Kristin

  29. Considering I have the Sari Paisley in my Dining room i guess that would be my favorite, but after seeing your hallway redesign I am really liking the Otomi Stencil Pattern too.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I prefer a rustic look so my favorite is the "Bird's in tree's" all over stencil. I think it would look awesome in a hallway.

  33. Gorgeous!!!! Your hallway looks like a magazine feature! I love the colors and design you've chosen and the board and batten wall. I stenciled our dining room over 20 years ago and said I'd never do it again.......until I saw yours!! I love the Anna Damask.

  34. I am loving this! I might have to get one of the stencils and do our VERY boring hallway. AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love the birds in trees all over stencil and the one you used too!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Good job! Love what you did, it looks amazing! At this moment I want the fish school all over stencil. I have a beachy theme going on in my house and I want to recycle a very old wood table of my grandparents that's been sitting under a shed and do a wall art piece with it.

  39. Your efforts totally paid off with your hallway redo. I have loved Mexican primitive style most of my life, so the Otomi would be my choice as well.

    The hallway was clean lined and more than fine BEFORE. Now it's awesome. So glad you shared. Congratulations!!

  46. Honestly, I freaked when I saw your hall walls. Not only are they gorgeous, but I LOVE the stencil you used! It's exactly what I've been looking for. So, yes, my choice is the Otomi. Absolutely love it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have the Otomi Stencil so it is my favorite! However, I could certainly use another around my home! Thank you!

  48. Coming over from the link up at The Winthrop Chronicles. Love how your room is looking! I would love to have the Japanese Peonies stencil...I think it would look really cool in our bathroom. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh they're all so lovely but your hall looks so fabulous I think it may have sold me on Otomi. I have a tiny hallway y that is crying for a little spruce up and I've been considering stencil in the walls...I think you have me convinced to do it.

    Thanks for sharing
