The way you decorate your home says a lot about you — but if you decorate with words, it can say even more. I love choosing pieces for my home that inspire guests with a positive message and contain fun hand lettering or type that is just purely decorative. I blame my love for letters on that fact that I’m a graphic designer, but I know I’m not the only one, because there are some pretty amazing items out there with beautiful type! Check out some of my favorite typographic pieces below; I think you’ll like what they have to say. — Jamie from A Pair of Pears
I want to stamp these on everything I bake, not just cookies. They would be cute for a pie too. I would use them for treats brought to a get-together; that way everyone will know my treats are homemade.
I just can’t get over how fabulous this plate is. It would be perfect for serving pretty finger food at a party. And when the guests go home, I would use it for holding my earrings, because there is no way I’d hide this beauty in the cabinets.
The hand lettering on this tea towel is so cute. Plus, the designers really knew what they were talking about when they made it. I wouldn’t mind a piece of chocolate cake to go with all that coffee, though.
Somehow I always misplace the bottle opener and have to go digging through all the kitchen drawers. This wall-mounted one would solve the problem pretty quickly, and it sure doesn’t hurt that it looks nice too.
Jake and I are totally dog people. Our little dalmatian is obsessed with his bone, so I think this art print would be right at home in our apartment. It’s like the maker took the words right out of our mouths.
