Lettering in interior design

One trend that has been rapidly gaining ground in recent years, is the move towards using text and lettering in unconventional ways in interiors. It can allow you to customise your own special message to the world in your home, and also to stamp your identity on your living space!

This girl’s bedroom uses a larger than life typeface to proclaim the child’s room with just enough confidence and clarity to ensure that all of the family knows who’s boss!

Whereas this hyper-chic Swedish kitchen workspace advances the traditional blackboard concept by adding a splash of colour in a way that is bright and eclectic. And of course, the blackboard’s inherent functionality means that if you don’t like what you see, you can just wipe it off and start again!

Whereas this office space really goes to town on typography by using outsize letters in a carefree and haphazard way, to communicate the concept that big ideas can happen here, it’s just a matter of time when!

Another massively popular use of lettering in interiors recently is the use of ‘home truths’ almost as an affirmation, that is best served in conjunction with some highly individual lettering format such as this vibrant ‘Love Rules Forever’ neon sign that adds warmth to the modern living space.

A more subdued approach is illustrated by this stylish rug that uses handwriting as a personal touch to lend a relaxing sense of poetry to the modern, yet comfortable living room space.

And, this on-trend fluorescent light installation really adds a sense of drama and coolness in the room by offering an elliptical and ambiguous word form to become a piece of art in itself!
