modern alphabets

modern alphabet decor for nurseries and children's rooms

These days, one of Birdie’s favorite things is noticing letters. Counting them, singing about them, “writing” them in her little glitter notebook with her blueberry scented Smencil. I think it’s contagious because look at this post, I can’t help myself! Especially when I stumble onto great goodies like these. When she was younger, including lots of letters in her room was really just a design choice, but now it’s something that will clearly keep her engaged.

Above, you’re looking at Wooden alphabet letters (winged A, blue M, and Striped m) from Edie’s Labs, $18 – $35. The clear acrylic letter blocks – A, B, Isla, and Olivia examples – are thanks to Reformed Art Cubes, $18.95 per block. The Retro Typeface blocks, $22 for 6, are from Meeshabelle. And the Alphabet Magnuts, $10 are thanks to Quirk Gallery.

Below, my favorite arty alphabet prints – modern and retro all at once. The grey letterpress Alphabet Doubled Poster, $35, is created by Ink Petals. The Alphabet print Tyopgraphy Poster, $19 is available from Restyle Design Prints. Draw! Pilgrim designs the individual letter prints in her Alphabet Series, currently 20% off at $26.40. I also hear Draw! Pilgrim is debuting 4 new prints in a week’s time make sure to check back!

Oh I was hoping someday you’d do an alphabet post! Great links, I love the vintage inspired letters, awesome! Love ’em all, it’s hard to choose a favorite.

Thanks Shelia! Edie’s Lab is new to me too, I’m really eyeing the winged letters, so cool.
