Art + Design, Do It Yourself

Inspiration: Cityscape

I recently decided my apartment was too drab for human habitation. My sister and brother in law were coming thousands of miles from the USA to visit me in Korea and I knew they would visit my apartment at least once.  I needed some inspiration.

My apartment is a simple shoebox. I really do love it but its quite small and the furniture is provided by my company. I hate almost everything they gave me, but,  since I love to eat and buy expensive foods, I don’t usually have enough money to spend on buying items I already have. These items include the bed, the dining table + chairs, the TV + stand and the closet. I would LOVE to replace all of them. As that is not an option right now, I decided a little low maintenance facelift was in order.

Taking inspiration (almost a replica) of some designs I found on this beautiful site, I created some masking tape deco for my wall.  I did not, in fact, measure. I am a lazy measure-er so I just couldn’t be bothered. But, if you are worried that it will not be even, I would go ahead and do some measurements.

NOTE: Don’t pull the electrical tape too tight. It will snap back after a while and I learned this the hard way. I’ve had to redo several areas where the tape pulled away from the wall.
