Look Ma! Another Cover!
I received a pretty little gift in the mail the other day…a copy of the newest Do it Yourself magazine from Better Homes and Gardens. My first thought: Gee, that’s a very bright, happy cover. Second thought: Gee, the pattern on that wall looks very familiar. Third thought: (lightbulb moment) Awesome! That’s our very own Berry Romantic Wall stencil.
We had sent the stencil out by request from a project editor sometime last spring, which, of course, I completely forgot about so it was a great surprise! You may remember this post about our Moroccan stencils making the cover of Better Homes and Gardens-equally thrilling!
I noticed one cool feature where they had sent old, ratty furniture pieces out to various DIY bloggers for some rehab, including one of my favs-the cute couple from Young House Love, John and Sherry.
That, in turn, reminded me that I should mention the fabulous wall stencil project they did with our Large Feathered Damask stencil. It looks super elegant in cream and yellow on soft gray. Just a LITTLE more understated than the cover above. That’s the awesomeness of stencils-you can have it your way!
Anyhoo, The whole Do it Yourself magazine is full of fun projects-with tons and tons of patterns thrown in, so check it out in the check out line! Their website is pretty cool too!

Unrelated to your current post, but it got me thinking…
I saw your (and Metamorfaux’s work) at the current Holiday House show in NYC. I’ve meant to shout out and say hi for a while. I love what you’ve done with Modello, and the show house in silver leaf looks incredible.
I painted and installed the grisaille mural on the 2nd floor, and met Sylvie.
Wishing you much luck with the show house and continued success with Modello.
