Chic or Shit: Washi Tape AND Hot Pink

I know some of you have missed the Chic or Shit series, and I just realized that I haven't done one in ages! Today's trend is HUGE here in Scandinavia, but it's also present in the rest of our continent as well as in the US and Australia.

Everyone and their mother seems to be washi taping things to their walls these days.. And if you're über trendy, you go for the HOT PINK version...

Pink and striped washi tape on a rustic background.

Hot pink and peach washi with a brighter background gives a totally different look and feel to it

You can even make your own faux headboard with it..

Or hang artwork.


SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Incredibly hot and stylish?

Or just plain stupid, with a naïve approach to decor?

Is it a cheap way to add interest?

Or does it make you throw up a little?

You decide, 

Is it CHIC, or is it SHIT??

Happy Wednesday!!

Shit for a headboard but chic when used as tape is intended. Adds a little love to your board/collage!

Alt til sitt bruk :) Helt enig at det fungerer supert til moodboards.

It looks better online than in real life. then it looks tacky. I love it used for wrapping and inspiration board only.

Lumo said...

The headboard looks fine online, but probably wouldn't like it in the real life...

I like the black and white printed washi tapes over hot pink.

I love the headboard. You could go crazy with that washi tape. I'd quite like to create a sort of wall sticker type thingy. You could even use it to do a sort of frame round photographs stuck on the wall. I think it's pretty versatile, and looks cool in a crafty sort of way. I might try it out!
