Auditioning Stencils

I spent a few hours today trying out some stencils in different color combinations for the guest room. I don't know why, but this is absolutely my least favorite part of stenciling stuff. I am so paralyzed by indecision, it takes me forever to come up with my final selection. Which do you guys think?
Pansy & Morning Glory
Rose Trio in Reds
Rose Trio in Yellows
I like the Moonflower and actually have a period drawing for this one—but it seems a little small for the size of the frieze.

I don't have a lot of time to pick this time, though, because movers come on Monday to move the furniture back in. I have until then to conveniently stencil the guest bedroom.


  1. Moonflower is pretty, but I agree it's a little small for the space. Personally, I like Pansy and Morning Glory.

  2. Hi I go for Pansy and Morning Glory. I think it is so right. Good luck with your stenciling no matter what you choose.

  3. My vote is Pansy & Morning Glory. Happy stenciling!

  4. Haha, I can totally relate. It is a commitment, so you might as well date them first, like husbands. I like moonflower the best. I can't comment on the color because I don't know the whole color story of your room/home. I do like monochromatic in general. To make it appear larger, you could invert it on itself.

  5. I like the pansy and morning glory

  6. I love the Mayflower, but it needs to be at least double size. :)

  7. I love the Moonflower, but agree that it is too small for the space. If there is noway to increase its size, my second choice would be the pansy and morning glory. Good luck!
