A Tribal Arrows Stenciled Boys Bedroom

When the day finally comes to update your child's room from a nursery to a kid's room, the transition can be bittersweet. They truly grow up so fast and sometimes your little bundle is not so little anymore. While he has been mastering the art of walking, talking and basically running the show, he's also outgrown is his nursery decor. Wall stencils are a great way transition his space because they add pattern and personality. Today we're excited to share a rustic stenciled boys bedroom that is a complete bulls-eye in our book.
We'd like to welcome back Laura, the design enthusiast and avid DIYer behind Pear Design Studio. Laura was contacted by a parent who was looking to give her son's nursery a makeover.
The space before.
Laura wanted a bedroom that was relatively neutral with colorful accents and a theme that could grow with the little guy. She decided to paint an accent wall behind the bed. First she painted the back wall white, similar to Benjamin Moore's simply white OC-117. Then selected a popular arrow motif, the Tribal Arrows Allover Stencil, to paint on the accent wall. She used blue painters tape to adhere the stencil to the wall and painted the tribal pattern using a color similar to Benjamin Moore's chelsea gray HC-168.
Once the stencil was complete, Laura painted the remaining three walls using the same medium tone gray. Then she was ready to accessorize the room with reclaimed wood features and touches of orange.
