ABC's & 123's -- For Your Home!

L decorSchool is back in session but who says learning can't be fun? Okay, well, maybe the kids have reason to grumble, but when I say learning, I really mean decorating -- with letters and numbers! It's as easy as, well, learning your ABC's. 


I have a love affair with words and letters, blame it on the day job. I am a big fan of incorporating it into my decor, whether it's in tiny details, like monogrammed soaps from Pottery Barn, pretty scripts on shelves (left, from Etsy), or huge, bright marquee lights on the walls, like these letters from Urban Outfitters.

And numbers are just as fun as letters. I love the idea of taking an old, vintage street sign and turning it into statement piece, such as this French antique enamel sign from Etsy. Another great option is putting your favorite number (or letter) on pillows, sheets, or blankets for a personalized touch.
