MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, May 15, 2012 1 WORDS YOU CAN LIVE BY WRITING'S ON THE WALL Susan Redman Details: Whiteport decals available at www.whiteport.com.au Word Art Studio: 0414 846 788, or visit www.wordartstudio.com.au This Live, Laugh, Love decal can be ordered through Whiteport. CONSIDER THIS Find low-relief wood and tin letters and mix them up to spell out a favourite word. Cut out letters or photos from magazines and collage them into phrases. Knit some letters, tool or emboss some leather words, make mosaic signs. Consider the size of fonts and the typefaces chosen, and whether they work in the greater decorating scheme. Vintage signs add a retro sensibility to a room but stick to just one or two. Old printer's plates can be bought from antique markets and displayed as artwork. Frame and hang children's handwritten letters and cards. Copy and enlarge alphabetic lettering and script from old books. Frame the covers of old quarto books or album covers with enigmatic or funny titles. Use wallpapers with words judiciously. A smaller area or room works well. DECORATIVE DECALS IT'S a bit cheesy, but we all like an affirmation. A favourite poem, a news- paper headline, a haiku even, cut out and stuck to the fridge door or the office pinboard. Recently there's been a move to see the trend writ large, so to speak, and words are the emblem du jour on homewares and finishes, particularly on walls. There are wallpapers with words, paintings with cryptic scribblings and fra- med journal pages. Decals are probably en- joying the greatest popu- larity, however recent de- velopments in digital imaging have produced a plethora of stick-on sayings that are easy to apply. Jennifer McCabe, from in- terior design site Whiteport, suggests a removable decal. ''Should you tire of it, you can easily change it or move it to another room. ''It's best to choose scripts that have personal mean- ing. Once you put words on your wall, you'll be seeing them every day,'' she said. Applying words to walls, whether decals or low-relief sculptural phrases, is an inexpensive way to trans- form a room. Seen any great ideas?
