Instantly update any wall in your home with some washi tape (decorative tape made from paper) and your favourite images. It’s an easy, inexpensive way to add some personality to your space — no nails required! Choose some prints — think anything from inspiring quotes and beautiful illustrations to holiday mementoes and candid snapshots — then arrange them on your wall (attaching with loops of washi tape) and outline each one with the tape. Keep it interesting by mixing up the shape and colour of the borders.
