The Writing on the Wall

This week we wanted to share something DIY with you!

We have a little obsession with text. Scrawled across walls, furniture, art, fabrics….there is something a little non-conventional about it, and totally rock n roll which we LOVE! The great thing about text that it instantly updates anything, as well as creates some visual texture. Plus it costs next to nothing, and you can do it yourself!!

It can be as simple as one line of text or it can cover the wall or piece entirely – we all for OTT as it creates such an impact! With so many different font types out there, you can select one that best suits the aesthetic you are creating with the other elements in the room. it is also a fantastic way to personalise a room with your favourite short story, poem or lines from a movie or song. There is so much potential with this idea!

The only bit of advice we have to share is to start practicing your handwriting now! If your handwriting is not up to scratch though, never fear – there are stacks of vinyl decals out there that will do the trick as well as wallpapers.
