Alphabet Soup

One of my favorite trends is using monograms/letters in decor. I think that it looks retro, modern, and classic all at once. Below are some pretty cool examples:

Of course, I just had to jump on board that train. And I did - a few times in my own house. 

First my lovely bookends from Barns & Noble


Below is my awesome find in a vintage clothing store in Breckenridge, CO. 

Luckily my family had rented a huge conversion van and driven out to Colorado, because this baby is so big it would not have made it on a plane.  Also - would they let that much metal go through security?


Lately, my cheapo DIY letters.  These are cardboard letters purchased from Joann Fabric, and painted orange. 


Do you use letters in your home decor? I would love to see it!

I love letters in decorating! That large "S" was a great find. Love it.

Thanks! I am glad that you both like the S. It was such a find for me. I do however get the 'Nice @ss'(rather than 'Nice S' joke a lot
