The Sweet Scent of Roses Without Any Emulsion Smells

Crown Paints are delighted to announce a stunning new stencil for their 2010 Crown Jewels collection. Created in collaboration with the Royal College of Art, the “Rose” is the 2nd stencil to be created for the Crown Jewels 2010 collection. Contemporary and hand-drawn in its aesthetic, the Rose was designed by Morten Underbjerg Olesen, a 3rd year under-graduate studying at the RCA. Oleson's style is very hands-on, and embodies the designer's self-confessed interest in "building" original silhouettes that work in contrast - like soft and hard - and how these effects can be complimentary.

In approaching the Crown Jewels project, Morten devised a more contemporary interpretation of a traditional rose outline. Morten said about his piece: “I have chosen to make a modern version of a rose stencil. I was inspired by the contrast between the organic wild rose and simple hand drawn lines.”

Engagingly avant-garde, and set to offer a directional style on walls throughout the UK this summer, the new stencils are both easy to apply, and perfect for introducing character into a clean space. Shocking and vibrant Crown tones like Summer Pudding® or Sticky Fingers®, are being tipped as the ideal way to bring the rose to life, with Crown’s brand new Feature Wall colours, like Chartreuse Mix®, being another exciting option. And because these colours are made using Crown's unique Breatheasy® formula, you can get creative without worrying about emulsion smells fogging up your house.

The new “Rose” stencil is produced by the Stencil Library, and now available to order from priced at £39.00.
