The writings on the wall, floor, fabric wherever. Much of the lettering is stencilled but stickers, handpainting, carving and print get a look in.

Custom stencil from In Your Own Words at The Stencil Library.
Swedish company Country By Mail Have created a room that is anything but humble
They have a collection of text based stencils and many other Scandinavian style delights.
Here is another from Country by Mail
I used their poem stencil to decorate my silk skirt. It was featured in a previous post but here is a detail from it.
Rockett St George have some beautiful homewares and these text tiles are a new addition
Letter tile from a collection by Rory Dobner at Rockett St George
Torn wallpaper adds a textured background for this custom made stencil
A stencil project such as this would be finished within 30 minutes. One colour, one brush..so simple yet very effective.
Large stencils of letters can be employed to give information..
and general fabulousness.
The chairs were digitally printed by various companies. My festival banner stencil could be re-used to similar effect.
Lettering stencils that look like mosaic could add an authentic and personal finishing touch to walls and floors. The mosaic style letters are from the In Your Own Words Collection at The Stencil Library and are priced per letter. There are stencils, lettering masks and forty fonts to choose from.
I think that I have enough photos of decorative and stencilled text to fill a book so I shall post some more soon. In the meantime if you are fond of a font you may like to visit I love Typography a blog about all things fonty. Helen.
