Confession: I am not good at interior design.
I may have already mentioned this, but I have had a really hard time decorating our home and I don’t really understand why. I’m artsy, I love well decorated homes, and I know the IKEA layout like the back of my hand. But I just really struggle with putting together an awesome room. You might not actually notice this is you came to my home because I don’t have anything offensively ugly and what I lack in creative decor I make up for in cleanliness, good lighting, and lack of clutter. But most of the good design decisions in my home have been deeply intense processes involving the input of everyone I know and mannnnyyyyyyy trips to Home Goods. Commitaphobia+lack of clear design vision= inability to decorate.
I really want something on that wall, but for the longest time, I haven’t known what. But then it came to me: I want a W.
People, I love having a W in my name. Yes, it means that my children will always be in the back of the line in alphabetical order, but it will make them stronger. W’s are just such lovely letters, with all those lovely sweeps. They can also be strong bold letters. I spend a lot more time doodling W’s than I care to admit.
Lately I have been seeing lots of cool letters used in wall decor, but so often it makes things look childish. But the other day I took a thesis writing break to cruise Pinterest for some new interior design inspiration and I came across these more mature letters incorporated into wall decor.
