Letter accessories are a great way to personalise your home with new and old type styles, available online, in stores and from markets. It’s a unique alternative to home accessories – looking good wall mounted, hanging on doors or standing on sideboards or shelving. 

We love these ‘individual black letters and numbers screened onto clear perspex with geometric detailing‘ sourced by Respect Your Elders and sold through Pedlars World (online) – £12 each. 

Explore vintage shops and antiques fairs to find discarded vintage fonts previously used for signage in pubs, shops, and other businesses. Ebay is also a great source for these. 


Spell out motivational words, names or statements or just choose single initials.

Every now and again we come across a collection of prints which grab our attention and we fall in love with. Tin Design has managed to do just this with their Frida Kahlo range of prints.

The combination of the abstract geometric style and vibrant colours is a definite winner.  Even if you are not familiar with Frida Kahlo, these prints are gorgeous enough to bring joy to any room.

Available in 4 designs [ A3 or A2 size ] they are £19.95 or £29.95 each, which is a fantastic price for such detailed and striking work.
