One of the simplest and most effective ways of bringing spots of color and pattern into an Arts & Crafts interior is through the use of stencils. Whether they are used on walls, curtains, table linens or other home fabrics, stencils can enliven a space in a bold, colorful way, or, using a restrained palette, in a subtle and low-key manner.  Gustav Stickley advocated their use in his magazine, The Craftsman, saying that they represented the best way for the average homeowner to express individuality in their interiors and to bring a touch of their own creativity to the foreground.
I believe our stencil collection is the finest and most authentic selection of period designs to be found anywhere.  Easy to use, high-quality stencils can be applied to any number of uses.  You are limited only by your imagination.  Every stencil comes with easy-to-follow instructions, and we are always happy to talk you through any issues that might arise.  If you think you will be stenciling more than once, (and I promise you, it is addictive), consider investing in our stencil paint kit, listed below.  It comes with 14 individually selected paints and 4 professional-quality brushes.
If you are looking for an easy, enjoyable and effective way to personalize your interior and bring some color, pattern and visual interest to your walls, you could not find a better way than through stenciling.
