Decoration Idea: Letters

25 July 2012 0


When I spotted this picture, I instantly fell in love with the look of it. The subway tile splashback, the rugged wooden countertop, the vintage faucet, the traditional espresso machine, the ceramic sink and the surprising pop of colour – the red letters saying EAT. The simplicity and individuality of this decoration is what I like most. In a rather neutral surrounding such a simple twist of decoration can really make a vivid statement. And it offers a countless number of possibilities: The letters come in various colours, sizes, materials, finishings. And if you love letters too and happen to come to Berlin one day, make sure to visit the unique Berlin Letter Museum (Buchstabenmuseum). Here’s to letters for the home!

    Igor your posts are always so close to my heart! I have always loved the use of letters(sparingly I might add!) And the fact that you can choose something that personal to you is so huge. In my kitchen I have zinc letters from Anthropologie that say ENJOY! and that is exactly how I want people to feel!
    In my next home I have been coveting a huge original sign that measures about 10feet long and is metal with bright red letters and says CAFE! I think it would be great hanging in the kitchen,I’ll keep you posted!
