Original vintage renderings
Although these first three images portray bedrooms, these stencil applications are suitable for any room. Notice the stencil placement in relation to the wood trim.
Yellow Room: Stencil image appears above or below a picture rail, very typical in a bedroom where often crown molding is absent.
Green Room: Stencil image fills frieze area between crown molding and picture rail. Design should be between 3-5 inches narrower than the height of the frieze.
Pink Room: Stencil image runs at top of wall, with or without crown molding, another typical application for a bedroom.
Black and White Renderings: from the Craftsman magazine show typical spot stencil applications, where only a portion of design is used instead of a border.
