About Henny Donovan Motif

Motif has been established to showcase and sell the range of exciting up to date stencils from artist, designer and author Henny Donovan. Henny's reputation as the most contemporary stencil designer has grown rapidly - "one of the most fashionable collections around is Motif" - says the Mail on Sunday. Henny's innovation in stencil design has done much to dispel the bad rep of 80's stencils, and her break-through signature range of oversize designs has brought the decorative possibilities of stencilling firmly into 21st century living and design.  The Motif website is the only outlet to purchase Henny's original stencils and stencil paints.

TV and press coverage

Motif stencils are regularly featured on UK TV and in UK and international interior design magazines. Henny's stencils have appeared on BBC DIY SOS, 60 Minute Makeover ITV1, Channel 4 and in numerous magazines and publications - such as The Sunday Times Magazine, Ideal Home, Homes & Gardens, Marie Claire, Eve Magazine, Country Living, House Beautiful, Period Living, Your Home, Living Etc, Perfect Homes, Channel 4 Homes magazines and the Italian Magazine, and in The Mail on Sunday, the Evening Standard Homes & Property, The Guardian, The Observer, as well as US Homes, and Cottages and Bungalows and many more.

The Stencils

Each one of our designer stencils is unique to this website and designed and produced by Henny Donovan. Henny's stencil designs are based on closely observed, original drawings, or historical archives. All our pre-cut stencils are precision cut by laser on high quality, durable 125 micron mylar (semi-transparent polyester film). Suitable for repeated usage and gentle washing. Stencils are supplied with usage instructions to get you started. Each stencil design has its own page on this site, with inspiring photographs/graphics and full description, so you'll see how the design works and get some decorating ideas too. Stencil dimensions (up to .5 of a centimetre and 1/4 of an inch) are also given in the Specifications section to help with your decorative planning.
