Stencils and Faux Wallpaper
Want a one-of-a-kind look? Use a stencil for painting your walls. There are so many patterns to choose from or you can make your own. If you’re feeling adventurous, break out the painters tape and try a faux wallpaper design. Feeling extra adventurous? Freehand the faux wallpaper design. The examples below will wow you!

Painterly wallpapers can be done by hand, keep in mind perfection is not necessary ( not ideal even!)… See those colorful birds on the back wall? Well, they are actually wallpaper, but could be done free hand or with a stencil pretty easily like these ones below, only in different bright colors!!
Love how this looks like wallpaper (above) but is actually painted on! This was designed by Wright Design and Tracee G Design.
I love this abstract painted wallpaper idea too! Via Little Green Notebook
