Kim Myles recently debuted a new stencil line and I am in love with her “Indian Inlay” pattern. It’s designed to create the look of intricate mother of pearl inlay furniture. Of course I want to further complicate this DIY by stenciling it on a rug. I’m guessing it would be time consuming, but the end result would be gorgeous!
This is the area of the showroom that needs the runner. I like black and white for the runner because I really want to ground the area and keep attention off those stupid tiles. The light rug that is there now is close to my color scheme, but is too small and doesn’t have impact.
(Sorry for the messy counters. Just keepin it real.)
For your viewing pleasure, I got all photoshoppy and plopped the stencil rug in place.
It could be fun, but if I do this rug here, I’ll have to really simple window treatments. (I’ve been contemplating both a clean geometric, and a really big scale floral. Big scale floral would not work with this.) So now I need to decide if I want my intricate pattern on the floor or walls.
A stenciled rug is definitely a DIY I’d like to try at one point. I’d also like to take an IKEA lack coffee table and try this stencil on it as well. So many projects, so little time!
