Wallpaper vs. Stencil

I've been bookmarking a lot of wallpaper sites recently. My problem is, I have not found something in the budget, because I will always pick the most expensive option, and you have to factor in the labor to hang.

Enter Olive Leaf Stencils. Their patterns pack a lot of punch. The space I'm considering is our stair landing. Not a lot of wall space, but I think it could provide interest to a bland wall.

Here are some of my favorites below:

I believe I've stumbled upon a great alternative to wallpaper.

Enjoy your weekend!

I too have been debating a stencil vs. wallpaper. I am just wondering, can I make it look as good as wallpaper? I am going to bookmark the site you mentioned...love the patterns

You probably don't remember me, but we have several mutual friends and lots of other things in common, it seems (Kanakuk, interior design, etc..). I hope you don't find this too strange, but I've often thought of emailing you about different design projects. Anyway, since you are looking at wallpaper, paint, and stencils, I thought you might want to check out Flavor Paper: http://www.flavorleague.com/wallpaper/. I think it's fascinating!

Glad you liked Flavor Paper! As soon as I can afford it, I plan to experiment with it in my closet!
