Styling Idea # 266 Letters on the Wall


Seriously – until I saw this image I would have said that I did not condone this idea. Letters? On the wall? In the living room? However there is something so sunny and friendly and chic about this space that it works. My tips are below so you don’t get it wrong.

Design Evolution


  • Only ever use one letter and it must be black
  • Look for artwork to surround the piece that is minimal and 70’s inspired (alternatively graphic photography would work also)
  • Anything cutesy or floral will destroy the idea- keep the lines clean and leaning towards masculine.
  • The height is very important when arranging this- here the higher level actually works in favour of the letter- making it a confident statement- I would follow suit.
