Letter Love

Letter Love

When it comes to decoration for Albert’s playroom and nursery I’m really drawn to everything to do with letters at the moment. Maybe it’s some subliminal urge to try and get him used to the alphabet or maybe it’s just because I’m a bit of a typography and stationery geek that I can’t help myself. Yeah, it’s definitely the latter. There are so many fun and modern ways to bring some letter love into your home (and baby’s wardrobe) and as I love it so much I’ve rounded up a few of my favourites.

Alphabet Flash Cards – Hope and Rainbows

These plastic-coated flash cards are lovely – so bright and colourful and the illustrations are fab. They are perfect for small hands to play with (and even survive a good slobbering too). I’m going to string some up with twine and hang them in Albert’s playroom as they are that pretty and deserve to be seen.

Personalised Initial tee – Magnificent Stanley

Initials made from Liberty fabrics are lovingly sewn onto tees and sweatshirts. I love Albert’s ‘A’ t-shirt so much, the quality and fit is brilliant and it washes so well too. And I think he looks rather cute in it!

Little Star Pennant – DIY here

I made this felt pennant for Albert’s room before he was born and I thought I’d share it here in case you’re after a more crafty slant to some letter love. It’s really easy and you can mix and match the colours to whatever suits your baby’s room.


Life’s a Beach wall decal – Made of Sundays

This ace wall decal added the perfect finishing touch to our seaside-themed playroom. It was so easy to stick to the wall (and it peels off just as easily in case you’re wondering!). Made of Sundays has such a brilliant range of quotes and characters to brighten up your rooms and I would totally recommend them.

Marquee Letters – Hobbycraft

A simple, white, freestanding letter that lights up and for just £10. Great for a shelf or even as a nightlight (or come to think of it at a birthday party or wedding!). Here’s Albert’s letter ‘A’ on the shelf in his playroom. You can change the backing colour in the letter if plain white isn’t your bag. What’s not to love?

Name Bunting – Obiora Makes

Sweet letter bunting to spell out the name of your little one in any colour you choose. I love it and it’s on my wish list for sure.


Letter Plaques – DIY here

Finally, I love the graphic element of these wooden letter plaques by Made by Molu. They remind me of comics and the bold colours would add a strong pop and feature to any room. I fancy having a go at making one of these (keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram page as that’s where you’ll find it if I do have a go!).



So what do you think? Do you have any letters or typography in your decor? I’d love to find out!

Lots of letter love,
