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.

Always popular and stylish for walls, typography and quote based prints work well as alternative art for the walls. It can create a modern, clean look which isn’t fussy for a room, as well as depending on the wording can be motivational or inspiring. 

We love the huge selection of prints at King&McGaw. It has an extensive range of styles and designs with great brands and artists on their books. The price range is broad from basic prints to more rarer designs. 

Search under ‘typography’ and ‘quotes’ and explore the range.

We encouraged, we embraced and we excitedly bought the latest in technology. We made our lives easier with computers and emails, no longer needed seperate devices for photography, work, writing and tv (now all in the palm of our hand). We created minimal homes with hidden features and buttons to evolve and improve our habitat. 

Now we remember the joy of hand writing, handling printed matter, the emotion of an actual photograph in the hand, or on the wall, and the memory it evokes. We look to books and script, appreciating the written form and the ink from real letterpress printing. 

Bring this emotion and tactile quality back into the home with words and pictures. Use initials, words, quotes and poetry to demonstrate the household characters, lifestyle and personalise your home. In prints on the wall, home accessories, fabric design and even use greys and inky blues synonymous with print and type as the colour palette.
