This design lends itself to a host of colour combinations to suit different decorating styles. Use soft blush pinks or apricots and leaf greens to emulate the briar roses of country lanes and gardens for that modern shabby chic style. Or use more graphic charcoals and greys for a sharp modern look, or pallettes of soft monochromatic colours such as green, blue or greys for open modern spaces. Try hot pinks and reds for bold but beautiful statements. Or use subtle metallics or pearlescent paints for effects that glimmer in different lights; or use gilding techniques with metal transfer for sumptuous, impressive gilded finishes.
See also the soft blousy, full blown Cottage Rose Stencil, which naturally complements this design.
