Moroccan Style Stenciled!

I am just about done with my butlers pantry. I had to take a break in order to paint many pumpkins over the last 8 weeks. That sadly has come to an end since I literally ran out of them! So now it's back to concentrating on client's and my own projects.
 My inspiration for the butler's pantry came from a moroccan style tile that I placed on the floor.  For those who may want the same feel but do not want to take on the project of tiling one can turn to stencils.  I find that stencils can be used for many things such as back splashes, stair risers,  furniture, floors and even faux headboards! I found some true beauties on Royal Design Studio and couldn't wait to share!  To purchase these lovelies Go HERE! Remember it's much less complicated than it looks and there are many videos available along with detailed instructions. A good paint,  stencil adhesive spray and I prefer a nice tight sponge to the traditional brush and you are on your way.


  1. I really love this type of tile. Is it harder to clean than regular tile? The designs are so pretty!

    1. Hi Rosemary, The new tile I installed is actually great to clean and very durable. If using a painted stencil several coats of poly urethane will help keep it clean!

  2. Karolyn, I love Royal Design Studios and used to take classes there when I lived in San Diego! I wish I could join you ladies tomorrow!! Have fun!!

  3. A lot of great stencils featured here - thanks!

  4. Beautiful patterns and I remembering stenciling a few years ago, you have sparked an idea for me when you mentioned headboards...

  5. Nothing beats the tiles you used but the stencils look great too! The last one truly is convincing as wallpaper.

  6. i love what you've done! and royal is my favorite source for amazing stencils! peace to you.

  7. I used their "dalmation stencil" in my powder bath and have been tempted to try one of their moroccan ones in my laundry room. It is a lot more work but so easy to paint over when you tire of it!!
