masking-washi-tape-wall-decor-frames-headboard-diy

Today I wanna share with you the last post of my masking tape wall decor series. Previously I wrote about using tape to create your own wallpaper pattern and to apply an eye-catching element on your wall. In this third post I would like to show you some “low-key” ideas – how masking tape can either support or even highlight another decorative element in your room.

#3 – Masking tape frames / headboards

To be honest, until recently I thought masking tape was only used to hang your pictures and posters on the wall. How wrong was I! But already in its basic function, tape can help supporting the decorative idea.
But be careful not to create a colorful overkill. Either choose for black-and-white, subtle nuances or colors that match the content of your pictures or the style of the room. Some examples:

Daytrip: Swan Market Rotterdam

Yesterday I finally managed to visit the Swan Market in Van Nelle Fabriek, Rotterdam. I had planned to go there for a long time (the market is organized on a regular base nowadays), but the need for a babysitter had kept me from doing so. Too bad, cause it it really worth strolling along the market stands!

I was overwhelmed by the amount of inspiring interior design products, decoration ideas and stylish vintage design. All of the entrepreneurs seemed extremely enthusiastic and optimistic which confirmed my resolution to start an own business myself. But let’s not hurry ahead and start with some impressions of my daytrip to Swan Market Rotterdam…
