Guest blogger: Head vs Heart, type as decor

February 17, 2010

One of my biggest obsessions is typography. I could look at it, design with it and talk about it all day. So it’s been exciting for me to see typography playing a larger role in wedding and event design recently. Decor is an area where we’ve just started to scratch the surface, but we’re definitely looking for fun and interesting ways to incorporate type into our space. Here’s a few examples that are getting the wheels turning.

Another aspect of our wedding I’ve yet to mention is that we’re trying to go handmade as much as possible, so Etsy has been a trusted companion throughout the planning process. Etsy also just so happens to be an amazing resource for typographic decor items. Here’s a few to get you started:
