When a random issue of a home and lifestyle magazine arrives it is usually because The Stencil Library has been featured and the magazine have been kind enough to send us a copy.
Wohn Idee arrived from Germany, neither Racher nor I knew what was going to be in it and so we leafed through the pages.
Was it one of our dot stencils on the picture frames? It may have been our MD33 Printers Dots or perhaps the polka dot stencil in our budget collection? It could have been either of them...but wasn't.
Were they our stencil designs on the inspiration board?
No, but they are similar to some of our repeat patterns. I liked the monochrome collage idea and have stored it to memory.
Were our silhouette stencils part of this display?
No. However I have been wanting to do something like this for ages. We have both stencils of silhouettes and stencils of frames. Our Blenheim frames from the Print Room collection would be just the thing.
There were many projects featuring styles of lettering. Did they use typography stencils from our 'In Your Own Words' collection. No.
Did they stencil numbers on the cushions?
No, they are embroidered and the chequerboard floor is not stencilled either.
Did this floor feature a mixture of our modern design stencils?
No, it's definitely a rug but I am tempted to stencil a floor with a mosaic of left over stencils.
I had not yet found any evidence of our stencils in Wohn Idee but was gaining so much inspiration for using them in future projects.
There were so many more tempting and creative ideas but it is not fair to show any more, you'll have to get a copy of the magazine.
Finally, was it our stencil of Hokusai's The Great Wave decorating this wall?
Yes! I would love to know who to thank for featuring our wave border. I can find no credits for photographer and stylist. I like the combination of brown, blue and grey and the way that the wave blends into the colour of the wall.
