Type Tuesday: Decorating with Type



I love the look of chunky vintage letters on display. I know that I’m in the house of a kindred spirit when I come across random type hidden on a shelf or leaning against the wall. The last time I was in NYC, I found an enormous, vintage red letter G at Paula Rubenstein, a store for all things fabulously worn. Had I been able to fit it on the plane home I would have probably named my first born something that started with a G, just to feature the letter on his nursery wall. Well, maybe not, but you get what I’m saying.

    I too am a sucker for decorating with type or typography. I have a big M leaning on the mantle and constantly gravitating towards typographic prints. I have one waiting for some hinge tape so I an mount it and hang it up!

    I like this look too. Did you see the post on Isabella & Max when Janell took the paper letters from Micheal’s and did a zinc finish? I still want to try this.
