Harmonious Mantelscape

A Zen-inspired vignette.

Practise the Japanese art of display by creating a balanced composition, using only a few items against a blank white canvas. Pair light and dark objects and straight lines with curves. Using Japanese washi tape to hang small pieces of art makes the vignette informal and easy to change around.
