Cutting Edge Shares the psychology of color and tips for choosing a stencil color. http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/wall-stencils-stencil-designs.html

How Does Color Make Your Home Feel?

Stenciling Blue: Office

The color blue has been associated with calmness and serenity.  It’s a popular color for home offices because people tend to be the most productive in blue rooms.  So if you’re looking to take your home business to the next level then take the lead from High Fashion Home and recreate this pretty office space.  Steal this look by stenciling our Anna Damask stencil pattern in Benjamin Moore’s fiji AF-525.

Stenciling Green: Bedroom

Nothing evokes a sense of renewal and tranquility like the color green. In pale shades, green feels surprisingly neutral, while deeper hues cast an earthy, elegant glow. It’s the hue to use to transform a bedroom into a dreamy escape.  Love this look?  Steal it using our Japanese Peonies Allover stencil and Benjamin Moore’s killala green 558.

Stenciling Yellow: Kitchen

There’s no need for a second cup of coffee in this yellow kitchen!  This warm hue never fails to raise our spirits and warm our hearts like a bright sunny day.   Yellow is the ideal hue for a kitchen because of its energizing quality.  Liz and Joe shared their Casablanca Allover stenciled kitchen on Apartment Therapy.

Stenciling Red: Dining Room

Red is a color that makes a statement.  It’s bold, sensuous, and full of passion.  Use this daring color to spice up a dining space and encourage the appetite of your guests.  House Beautiful nailed it with this gorgeous dining room. We don’t blame you for wanting to steal this look!  Use our Retro Flame Stencil pattern along with Benjamin Moore’s caliente AF-290 and warm sienna 1203.

Stenciling Purple: Living Room

Does this living room make you feel like you should kick offyour shoes and relax?  Purple can have a powerful effect on our emotions which is why it’s touted as such a relaxing hue.  This lovely living room was spotted on Home My Design.  It features a patterned accent wall which is similar to our Rose Damask design.

Stenciling Pink: Girl’s Room

From sweet and pretty to bold and sophisticated, pink colors run the gamut. It’s also known as a calming, heart-warming hue which is why it’s perfect for a girl’s bedroom.  Remember this Rabat stenciled little girl’s room we shared not too long ago?  We think it’s a stunning example.
