Midweek Obsessions: Typographic Decor


If you're drawn to the written word like I am - you know how magical it is when a great quote or phrase catches your eye. And when you have that passion combined with working in the home decor space all day - words in design really start to stand out. The reason I started this blog (nearly 10 months ago!) was because of my love for writing and decorating - so it seems only natural to equally love combining the two. I've found that most of the home photos I've been inspired by and pinning lately have words in them somewhere that I can resonate with. Adding a specific phrase, word or just a letter that means something to you is a way to really customize your home decor - and I think that's the reason I love this trend so much. Josh and I have used words to decorate our place in tons of ways, from our gallery wall to the piece of driftwood and J&L letters we have on our bedroom mantle. Some may say it's cliché, but I say it's awesome.

So add words to walls or pillows or beds or wherever - and let your home (truly) speak for you!  Here are a few of my typographic faves...
 ^Cool workspace idea
 ^Are you a scrabble lover? This is such a cute idea. 
 ^Obsessed with this DIY headboard
^Fun literal idea for a kitchen. 
^ In love with my Coveted Things scarf (pictured on our bed).
^I'd like to frame this.
^ And this

And here are some wordy products I've been loving lately!

1. Love the industrial-chic look of these letter wall hooks. 
2. A fun accent for the adventurer. 
3. Dr. Seuss quotes always seem to fit life perfectly. I think this one's my all time fave. 
4. These wire script accents would look great above a bed. 
5. We have this Etsy print framed as part of our office gallery wall and I love the quote.  It's a perfect gift for a loved one - you can customize for any state!
6. A great way to go bold with your bedding
7. Sleep soundly with this "sweet dreams" pillow pair. 
8. Love these shabby chic, natural XO pillows. 
9. These metallic balloons would be great for a birthday party.
10. Great motivational wall decal for an office or desk area!
11. Love this geometric LOVE pillow for an accent chair. 
12. These Greater Than prints on Etsy are so fun, especially this cheese one we have framed in our office. :)
13. Digging the classic look of these monogram mugs. 
14. This simple and sweet "You are the apply of my eye" print would make for a great focal point in a kids room. All of Sugarboo Design's typographic pieces are equally sentimental and awesome. 
15. Love this print for a console table, dresser, or desk. 
16. I'm obsessed with all of Alexandra Ferguson's bold & quirky pillows. You may have spotted this one in my post about Alt Summit last month - we used it in our lounge space!

Happy hump day all!
