When Walls DO Speak

When Walls DO Speak

Ok, not actually speak, but at least bear words. We have a thing for typography and vintage signs mixed into our decor, but we're surprised by how many homes contain this craft store special. Can word decor be done right, or will it always be a space-filler while looking for the perfect piece of art? You tell us...

We think the trend works best in children's rooms, as in Megan Duerksen's awesome playroom/guestroom below. Here the "Read" seems to fit into the room's design scheme rather than being the sole decor.

Letter decor in limited doses or not at all? What's your take?
