Choosing a piece of art to complete your home can be a daunting task. It’s the finishing touch that speaks volumes about your personality, and it can make or break a space. But don’t worry; typographic art is a quirky design trend that’s personal and affordable.
From full-wall letters to minuscule words of wisdom, text art is equal parts graphic and fun. Whimsical or inspirational, it’s a great go-to for a home office or bedroom in need of character.
Give your space a voice with one of these unique and affordable artworks. Scroll down for typographic works of art to suit your space and budget.
Text-heavy artworks are all about proportions. If your room is minimalist, play with prints that create a focal point, while maintaining the understated style.
A simple way to find the perfect artwork for a space is to take subtle hints from existing décor. Interior designer Tina Apostolou of Homepolish drew inspiration from stationery when designing Paperless Post’s New York City office. “Their stationery features beautiful artwork and typography that I wanted to reflect in the space,” she explains, choosing to frame single-letter artworks in each room.
Prints needn’t be hung on the wall. Try clumping a collection of complementary pieces together on a bedside table or hardwood floor for double the impact. Keep the surrounding space clear of clutter to direct attention to the art.
Opt for messages that say something about your personality. If your décor is understated, give the room a voice with a bold or playful statement piece.
No time to frame? Use a sheet of wire as a display board. Attach art with industrial metal clips or pegs and change it as your space and style evolves.
Use shelves or ledges to display a collection of art. Experiment with photo frames in different proportions for an eclectic edge, but be sure to maintain color consistency when choosing frames for a cohesive final look.
