Use decorative lettering transfers
to decorate your colonial themed interior
Looking for decorating ideas that will change your
home into a Colonial New England showcase? You’re
not alone. The Colonial New England style is popular
in many parts of the world, not just New England.
New England is the place where the Colonial
decorating style originated, and you certainly can
get decorating ideas by visiting this historical
area. But you can also get plenty of Colonial/New
England decorating ideas from books, magazines, and
the Internet, too.
Colonial/New England decorating ideas center around
one basic theme – simplicity. The Colonial era began
in the early 1700’s as those who were brave enough
to cross the ocean began settling in the thirteen
original colonies. What these people had, they
primarily got from their land: their food, their
furnishings, and their tools. Just about everything
they had, they or others who specialized in a trade
made by hand. They raised animals for food, milk and
eggs and tended to their gardens for vegetables and
other items they cleverly used as decorations.
Today, decorating ideas for the Colonial New England
look are found primarily with mass-produced
reproductions. Antiques are popular, but they are
expensive. If you can get your hands on a few
antique pieces, use as centerpieces and build the
rest of your home décor ideas around them.
Want to give your walls a hand painted look
instantly without going to the paint store? It’s
easy when you use personalized lettering transfers.
These amazing sheets of rub-on lettering are
pre-measured and pre-spaced at the factory. All you
do when you get it home is decide where you want
your word or phrase to go and then rub out the
letters. It really is that easy.
Once on the wall, these decorative letter transfers
are crisp and look as if a couple of coats of paint
were used to create them. They look much better than
wood lettering and the finished result is more
visually appealing than when using stencils.
There’s no better way to transfer quote to wall. And
it doesn’t have to be a quote that some other person
thought of. You can create your own quotes,
motivational sayings, and words of wisdom. Create a
label for a grouping of family photos. Add a text
border around a special picture. Add a family prayer
to a baby’s room. Your home décor lettering options
are limited only by your imagination.
And with the ability to not only create your message
but style it as well, you’ll get custom wall
lettering at a fraction of the price you’d pay for
the services of a professional. Design your message
using a number of different font styles including
kid’s styles, formal styles, early American and old
English styles, and many others. Select the color
for your message, too. Choose from 40 different
color options including a number of matte looks.
When you’re ready to remove the decorative lettering
