Design Trends: Writing on the Wall

Like some of our past trend spotlights, this trend is certainly not a new one. However, it is gaining traction in the age of DIY. From paintings to prints to pictures to wood cuts to light-up signs to over-sized scrabble tiles, writing, calligraphy, and letters have emerged as a hot home trend. Recent years have provided an influx of vinyl wall lettering, cut-wood letters, canvasses, and other mediums that encapsulate that hand-made feel. Whether you blow up a special poem, quote, letter, or ticket and put it on your wall or assimilate a copy of your child’s name in your handwriting in his or her nursery, there’s something about lettering that feels uniquely human. Wherever it’s found, lettering provides a personal and whimsical touch.
