In our opinion, there isn’t a single place in a room that can’t be considered decorating real estate. The big elements—walls, floors, trim, and molding—may get all the love, but we like to think small, so we’ve added an extra dash of vibrancy to our office with these switch plates covered in Japanese washi paper.
Like the look, but don’t want to wait to order the washi? Try origami or lighter-weight craft papers, both of which are available at most craft stores. For the plates, use the basic, inexpensive, smooth plastic type sold at any hardware store. Then follow these steps.
