Why I Fill Our Home With Words

When I first started to decorate our home, I struggled a bit with what to put on the walls. I’m not much of a traditional art person, but I also didn’t want architectural pieces all over the place either. That’s why I fill our home with words.

I’ve always loved words and the impact that they can have – hence my college major in journalism. And, given that I love to write and I’m such a book worm, it makes sense that I would want to fill the rooms of our home with words. It simply brings me comfort to read verses or phrases that convey a meaningful part of our lives or about our home. I try to add at least one piece of word art in each room of our home, but I still have a long way to go!

As part of our master bedroom renovation (I promise a full reveal is coming one of these days!), I knew that I wanted to continue the word art trend. What better place to be surrounded by words of love and wisdom than your bedroom?

Thanks to Minted, we now have some of the most special words forever framed – the Bible verse read on our wedding day. It’s a beautiful reminder of mine and Ryan’s love for each other and what it can endure. I chose a silver foil text to add a subtle sheen to the print and to pick up the distressed details of the frame. I haven’t found the perfect place to hang it yet, but I also am toying with the idea of leaning it or setting it on a simple stand. It’s a simple but effective piece of decor that I’m excited to display in our bedroom!
