When spring is knocking at the door, you know, is accompanied by a renewed energy of the early sun on the skin and a deep sense of inadequacy: the legs are still too white to be displayed, the wardrobe seems unmanned, the hair is never were so unruly, the shoes have become instruments of torture ...

Even the house, our winter nest, claiming a change, new colors that represent us, new combinations of spaces and ideas for the time, and if the time of sociability.

It's time to change your look, to find new solutions to rediscover themselves and present the world in a new light! To say it looks easy, but your wallet is not always agree with our whims and even the weather is not on our side: we need a emergency, quick and cheap.

Here is a checklist to give new life to our home with stencils.

Wall stencil

The stencil is nothing other than a mask (a cut-out on a card) on which the color is spread with a brush or spray, paint for walls and other media in series and reproduce the same design. On the net there are many tutorials to follow to achieve a good mask and also stock of already drawn shapes with download free. For more complex projects, but above all, for readers less able to fto-it-yourself, is better to start purchasing prepackaged stencils (few), or adhesive designs (example: 1/2).

If you use the back of the bed or the couch, try have the decorum asymmetrically, the space will be increased and more articulate. Contaminated spaces: a decoration on the wall can reach the ceiling (attention: only if the environment is bright and the walls are very high).

3. The details in the space of passage

The decoration does not necessarily make you the center of the house, often the most effective actions concern less noble environments, as the entrance or stairs. These service areas, we often forget, can find a new position through a small creative idea. Enhancing it, we will look our bigger house and more attention to detail.
