Give your home some literary appeal with Absolutely’s typographical shopping edit
Words Joy Montgomery
It can be tricky to find easy and inexpensive ways to inject personality into your interiors. Luckily there has been a new trend for literary-inspired home touches that has made customisation that little bit easier.
Helped along by websites such as notonthehighstreet and etsy, personalised home accessories and art work have become easier to access, making them the perfect anniversary or birthday gift. Whether you opt for a serious statement with Lime Lace’s alphabet wallpaper or simply stick to lettered mugs, the key is to avoid typographical overload, so keep it to one feature per room.
We love Printer and Tailor’s initial notepads, which will make any desk space instantly Instagram-ready. Meanwhile creative kids will love Nubie’s alphabet cushions – spell out their name or scatter on the sofa and watch their faces light up.
