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.
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.

Today I woke up, and poof like Magic I received this wonderful email....
Hi Debbie,

I’m the Fairy Hobmother, it is my job to go around the blog-o-sphere and spread joy and magic!

After having visited this blog I saw your wish for the very best for your sister and her fiancé. Firstly, congratulations on a piece of great news, the Fairy Hobmother will send some magic their way!

I had a look at your own blog, and I have got to say that you are very creative when it comes to your decorating, and your $3 goodwill table post is just incredible. I would have never thought that you could change something that dramatically  by giving it a little make-over!

I would love to give you a $50 Amazon gift card so that you can get some more supplies for some more decorating projects.

If you would like to accept this gift then the only thing that the Fairy Hobmother requests in return is that you give us a brief mention in your blog (with a link). It can either be a full post or simply a brief mention at the bottom of one of your regular pieces. As an added bonus, any of your readers that leave a comment on that post and make a wish, could be visited by me.

If you would like to accept the gift please email me back and I will get it sent out to you.

Keep up the great work on the blog and I hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day!

HOW COOL is that?  So now I ask of you, to cast a wish, and may all your dreams come true!
 The Fairy Hobmother is watching!
