One should never shy away from a strong graphic statement in a room. One way to do this is through custom word art. It’s fun, unexpected and chic.
Word art transforms a simple idea into a high-impact visual statement. In my Napa living room, I love watching my guests react to the Ulrika Andersson word art which reads “No one knows I am a girl.” Indeed I am. Word art can also bring to life one’s personal identity and history. Maybe it’s a phrase in Celtic and Yiddish that bring a knowing smile to family members.
There’s a fit for every budget. Use reclaimed signage lettering in a flea market or yard sale and regroup them to form words on a coffee table. For an edgier look, design your own layout and have it laser-cut at a signage store. PVC, MDF or even Plexi-Glass comes in fun colors that will add pop to a neutral wall. Just don’t forget to watch your language!
