With the incessant apartment-moving we do in this city, who’s got time to wallpaper the new abode? Moreover, there’s usually some kind of draconian mandate set out in the rental lease prohibiting even the smallest of renovations.
That’s where blik surface decals come in. Billed as “Wall graphics for the commitment-phobic,” these oversized self-adhesives add fun to drab white walls. Now your apartment can be dotted with mod circles, crawling with video-game Space Invaders, or ringed by a racetrack that loops behind your couch. A smaller version, blik minis, are also available; they’re perfect for decorating frames or glassware (yes, they’re dishwasher-safe). And, of course, both mini and mighty versions are completely removable.
