Wecome to our Website!

MB Historic Decor is devoted to recording, reproducing, and selling "period" stencils for use in new and restoration decoration. Our collections include over 700 pre-cut patterns traced directly from historic New England houses.

Stenciling is an early form of American interior decoration used to embellish walls, floors, floorcloths, and furnishings. Stenciling was initially developed as an alternative to more expensive wallpaper and floor coverings and remains a very economical, personal and beautiful way to enhance your home.

MB Historic Decor offers a variety of wall and floor stencils, laser cut on sturdy .005 or .007 mil Mylar, along with supplies such as paints and brushes enabling both first-time and experienced stencilers to create their own decor.

The cover article shows how Polly Forcier has decorated her condominium with historic stencils on floors and walls. Also includes step by step directions and stencils for creating a Rufus Porter mural. Features the work of other acclaimed craftsmen.
