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?

Every Day I Love You wood sign from Frances Dureen
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!

    I love having words around too. It makes sense with your background and love for books that your home would have them too!

    i have never ordered anything from minted but i have been meaning to.. for like 3 years. haha. i am weirdly picky about what i put on our walls – either photos of us or words that have special meaning. i just got a canvas with a line from our wedding song and i can’t wait to hang it up.

    I’m a lover of words too. It’s so lovely that you have all these gorgeous canvasses in your home. I currently have little scraps of paper so I’ll have to upgrade to the real deal when I own a house one day.

    So pretty!! I only have one little canvas word art in our place. My older sister loves this kind of stuff though so I will have to share this with her. Hope that you are having a great week too! 🙂

    I love word pieces but not overkill. You’ve incorporated ones that have a minimalistic feel that adds to the rooms instead of making them feel cluttered. I love your use of them!

    We really don’t have a lot of words around our house, but I love how you pick pieces that have so much meaning! Minted really does have some great products, and I love the frame that you chose as well!

    Love this! You know how I feel about words too, and each of these are beautiful! I love the simplicity in them too. Brett and I have plans to hang the Corinthians verse in our bedroom as well :)!
