HeyO! It’s lettering kinda day!!

You might be aware of the fact that am into Calligraphy also. And the reason I learned calligraphy was because I saw a few of the artworks in home decor images on Pinterest.

Now that it just strikes me, why don’t I actually take you through the ones that might inspire you too?

Let me guide you through the possibilities and varieties with which you can bring home some quirkiness.

Reasons Why Lettering will be an interesting addition to Home Decor

Do you realize whenever you watch a movie with subtitles on, your mind asks you to focus on what’s written; more than anything out there.

So, for you, lettering with an affirmation or a funny quote can pump up your every day.

For your guests, it will be an interesting and inspiring addition to your home decor.

It’s like having your home talking to you or about you.

I have one funky quote written, “Hey Good Lookin'” in calligraphy. I then framed it and placed it on the window sill of the common bathroom at my home. Each time any of our guests/visitors use the bathroom. They come out with a smile, mentioning “the quote is so cool!!”
