“No dictionary is required to appreciate this alphabet-inspired trend.  Graphic patterns of letters and numbers are popping up on everything from paper clips to plates.”

For a more simple take on this trend, add a monogram to a furniture piece or pillow, stencil a collection of letters on the wall for a chair-rail, or place a single letter in a space as a decorative accessory.

    Decorative accessories should be well made. The quality of materials should be always checked if it is the best. .’;’*
