I don’t know if it’s the whole “living with a graphics guy” thing or if I’m reverting back to my Sesame Street days. But, lately I am in love with letters. I’m specifically referring to individual letters of the alphabet, as opposed to a letter that one writes and sends through the mail (though I love those, too). I love seeing the different type/font – whatever you want to call it (I’m sure there’s a technical term that Darrin will school me on later). And I’m seeing letters all over the place. As I mentioned in this recent post, I even added letters to our engagement open house invitations. Here’s a very short tour around the web of some of my favorite letters.
I love the simplicity of this large letter and the way it offsets the artwork. The color also really pops off the wall.
This is a great example of incorporating different fonts and types into one space in a simple, yet elegant way. I like how they’re leaning over on one another, too – like they’re just resting or taking a little nap. It’s a perfect pose for the letters “N” or “Z”.
I love the boldness of this installment. It would be fun to pick letters and numbers that had special meaning – the initials of family members or anniversary dates – and incorporate them into the design.
For all the moms and dads out there, here’s an example of a fun way to use letters in the kid’s room. You can start teaching the alphabet while bringing some bright colors and cool shapes into the space. I love that the “O” is a mirror.
Finally, here’s a teaser of the first letters we’re bringing into our home. We ordered them from Urban Outfitters. But, alas Darrin’s “H” is on backorder. Whaddya think?
So, what about you? Are any of you letter obsessed? What other trends are you going crazy for at the moment?
