The Painted House

Inspired by Charleston farmhouse, I once spent a considerable amount of time designing a stencil for my bedroom walls. For some reason, I never actually got around to applying the stencil, but it is still a project which I hope to return to one day. I wish I had known about The Painted House back then as if I had, I would almost certainly have patterned walls by now. Claire Bosanquet stumbled across these unusual patterned paint rollers in a market in Romania and was so excited she bought the whole lot. She has now adjusted the traditional rollers for use on both walls and fabric and sells a choice of eleven different designs in her etsy shop. I love this idea and would definitely like to have a go with one. Perhaps those bedroom walls will get done after all.
