The March edition of World of Interiors features the late Jocasta Innes' home in Spitalfields and I was asked to stencil some borders in 'Jocasta-esque' colours for the Inspiration page of the magazine.
The editors selected DE1 Border No. 1 and now that the stencil has done its small but important task, I shall give it away. The recipient must pay the postage charges at cost (see below) so to make the parcel more exciting I am adding AR53 Railing No. 1
and AR51 Pierced Wall, both in the medium sizes from our Architectural stencil range .
They too were stencilled for the magazine so have a little paint on them but all are in very good condition.
The central section of the AR51 stencil is useful without the outer borders if a lighter style is preferred.
The brushes are in the photos to show scale and illustrate how many brushes and colours I used to achieve the effect shown in the magazine.
These are three fairly wide border stencils and could look fabulous top, bottom or mid wall. If stencilled onto fabric they could make a wonderful decorative accent at the base or edges of curtains. Decorating bolster pillows or roller blinds would be another good use for the stencils. Follow the links to see the size of the stencils in metric and imperial measurements.
The DE1 border works well as a vertical stripe too. All these designs could look great stencilled onto floor boards. I was toying with the idea of using the DE1 onto a table top but that was before I decided to offer them to one of our readers. The combined retail price of these stencils if new would be 116.35 GBP ($190) so if you have projects for them they are a bargain.
Post and pack charges to send the three stencils are as follows; UK 5.00 GBP, EU countries 7.00 GBP, rest of world 10.00 GBP. Postage free if collecting from our premises. Right, how to request the stencils. We will take a name at random when we arrive the office on February 13th. Send a message through this blog post, our Facebook page or Twitter and put 'Jocasta Giveaway" in the message.
The World Of Interiors will be in the shops any day now, it is a lovely issue and shows decorative paintwork in Istanbul as well as Spitalfields and Stocksfield.
