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.

In the lovely old-meets-new development at Kings Cross (London), Granary Square was host to this year’s Design Junction. A huge spread of exhibitors showing new season products and interior trends as well as super brands popping up shop selling current products, home accessories, accessories and furniture. 

Here we got to meet the lovely Jo Angell and see her brand (of the same name) selling her gorgeous pattern and architectural lead designs in print, on homewares and stationery. Angell, based in North London, from her extensive and successful graphic design background now produces her designs on fabric, art prints and wall paper, as well as translating these designs to tea towels, ceramic mugs and greetings cards. 

Her patterns are crisp and fun using great colours, and all pieces would be fantastic in a modern home. Her prints would stand out alone on a wall but work excellently in a gallery cluster and her kitchenwares would brighten up any crisp  white kitchen. We love her bold designs taken from images of an favourite London architectural site – the old, no longer used, gas holders, which turn these metalwork giants into a great colourful abstract prints on paper and fabric. 

Check out the online store for shopping or to find out where she is exhibiting next or upcoming projects.
