Beauty lives all around us.

For the love of type

Can I just say that I love that typography is still a huge trend? It is slowing making its way into South African stores too and *sigh* I am in love.

Loads of Living’s summer collection has some beautiful examples of how international trends are filtering through with that distinct South African flavour.

But at R500 (almost $100) per pillow, it is more of a dream than a reality. I love the vibe of typography around the house and with its international trend appeal it isn’t difficult to find a style to suit your tastes. Here are a few SUPER cute ways that other people around the interwebz have integrated the love of type into their everyday decor.

Here we have an example of large-scale typographic DIY art made by Dana at House*Tweaking. Painted letters on a large canvas? Cute. Don’t be afraid to personalise your art like Dana did. I am certain her little boys feel special knowing that this words come from a song their mommy sings to them.

Here is another example of inexpensive typographic art:

This would be simple to replicate… Grab a piece of delicious wood or a fat canvas and paint away!

How about some functional type? Here are some single character coasters. I would LOVE a set of these!

Grab some cork, some wood and a jigsaw if you don’t live around a laser cutting facility. The straight letters would be a breeze while the curvier shapes might better left to the more adept at hand.

Oh and have a look at these adorable pillows too! I would love to have two pillows on a chair like this one with an “X” and one with an “O”… mmmm hugs and kisses on the couch!

Aren’t these just the loveliest examples of typography in the home? They make me squeal on the inside!

 

What do you think of this type trend? Big fan? Or OVER IT?
