Typography Decor

Hello, all! It’s Mari here with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It’s a fantastic place to find interior design inspiration including great decorating ideas for everything from beautiful contemporary floor lamps to wonderful cozy rugs for the floor.

As you can see Britta burrus design is all about letters that come together to form words to showcase their clients’ services and/or products. Since we live in a world of interiors, we wanted to share some beautiful and interesting ways letters and words–typography can be used in interior design. Here are eight of our favorites. Please enjoy!

Even a minimalist home can be decorated with letters and words. Here a large rustic duo created from reclaimed wood sits on the floor of a small foyer. A quirky collection of brass coat hooks adds more visual appeal to the space.

An oversize raw metal “Q and A” is a nice contrast to the sleek white of the cabinets and walls. A modern pendant light over the table is large, but doesn’t overwhelm the space because of it’s quite delicate.

If you have a tiny dining nook that needs a little something extra, go mega-big with a single megaletter like this fabulous Z. Isn’t it a wonderful effect?

This amazing wall is in an LA restaurant, but wouldn’t it be perfect at home in the kitchen or dining room. Paint a wall with chalkboard paint and use stencils or free hand calligraphy if you’re artistically inclined. A lovely array of fonts is used here.

How cool is this display of coat closet contents sans the closet with American sign above? I love the great combo of hats, coats and boots. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
