Wallpaper vs. Stencil Art

In my Wallpaper Artwork post earlier this week, see it here, I mentioned I'm considering tweaking the idea by using a stencil instead of wallpaper. Here's a look at the wallpapers vs. stencil options I'm liking at the moment.

Wallpapers Options

treetops - jocelyn warner

spellbound - schumacher

modern trellis - schumacher

starburst - gramham & brown

lacework - amy butler via graham & brown

Stencils Options

missing link - cutting edge stencils

For beautiful stencil walls and a tutorial on how to, go here and here. For a online tv tutorial on how to make wallpaper artwork go here (wait out the tour of Jennifer Ferreiras' apartment).

A couple of things I need to keep in mind when choosing which route to go - the drapery and coffee table are staying everything else can be replaced - here's a snapshot of my living room today. The wall colour could also change, today, it's Alexandria Beige from Benjamin Moore. Oh, I should mention, I would love, love, love a Madeline Weinrib area rug, you can read all about it here, but I'm thinking it's not going to happen unless I source out a sale.

So what do you think - wallpaper or stencil? Happy Weekend!

I'm going to go with wallpaper on this one Wendy! I am in love with that Spellbound one, and of course the Amy Butler one is amazing too!

I'm a big fan of the 3rd and last wallpaper options. All would look great but those are the two that caught my eye! Good luck!!
