Decorating with letters and Numbers in your home!

Hi there. I'm Jenn and I work for Arcadian Lighting, an e-commerce website that specializes in top lighting trends around the world. When I moved into my first apartment I bought this gorgeous lamp and I've been hooked on light fixtures and interior design ever since. My morning begins with a coffee and reading a few great blogs, one of my favorite being Debbiedoos - I feel privileged to be guest writing here today, so thank you Debbie!

The only lettering used in home decor in years past may have been some alphabet borders in a kid's playroom, however today, letters and numbers are a fun way to not only personalize a space but add some playfulness to a room too. Monograms, words, and various digits in bright colours and styles can be a great addition to any space. Throw in some beautiful furniture and a great light fixture or two and decorating with letters and numbers is as easy as A, B, C (or 1, 2, 3).

Stamp of approval
Letter And Number Decor
A simple letter stamped onto a throw pillow or other accessory is a straightforward way to bring some personality into a little girl's bedroom.
Oh baby that's cute!
Letter And Number Ceiling Light
This nursery dripping in pink is extra pretty with a monogram on the wall. The chandelier ceiling light is a fabulous addition to any princess room.
A shabby chic detail
Letter And Number Pendant Lights
What looks like crayon letters scribed onto a wall becomes a unique "headboard" of sorts in this shabby chic bedroom. The hanging pendant lights are also a smart way to frame the bed.
Count on it
Letter And Number Decor
Numbers in different colours on different backings create a unique wall hanging over a singular piece of furniture in a transitional space such as a hallway.
Style from A-Z
Letter And Number Decor
What's so whimsical about this lettering display is the way in which all of the letters are different, from the O-shaped button to the curly-Q T.
Spell check
Letter And Number Decor
Letters in different shapes and typefaces make for interesting wall art in this tween boy's bedroom. The look is fun when mixed with other framed prints.
City-scapes
Letter And Number Ceiling Light
This office built for two boasts letters on the walls that, along with the city photos, create a sense of being whisked away to the bustling Big Apple or across the pond to London. The hanging ceiling light is a cool nod to mod as well.
Book some time
Letter And Number Decor
This bedroom is full of life and colour, and the bold red letters stating "read" make it an inviting and cozy place to curl up with a great book.

  3. Excellent guest post that provides great inspiration for personalizing a room. My grandmothers used needlepoint and cross stitch to introduce letters and numbers in a room. I love all the new possibilities.

  6. Wonderful! I love fancy lettering in the home. In my old house, I hand painted words of inspiration in my foyer. Words like "faith", "blessings", "family" and "love". And a few others. I PLAN ON doing it here to, it is number 74 on my list!! LOL!!
    Thank you for the lovely ideas and inspiration Jenn and Debbie!
