Of all the major award shows, The Oscars broadcast is the only one I rearrange my calendar for, so you know what I’ll be doing this Sunday night. I’ve been a film fanatic since I was a kid, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to see my own name in lights one day. But since my acting career has fallen behind my interest in home design, I guess I’ll just have to settle for incorporating the lights into my own home and hope that my dogs will make do as my adoring fans.
I’ve been drawn to marquee signs since I started seeing them pop up in interiors with the rustic trend, and I’m in love with designer Amy Lutz’s use of marquee letters to spell out “LOVE.” The placement of the letters is perfect — they illuminate both the patio and dining room of this Austin home, creating a fun, playful vibe.
Angelica Henry knows that a playroom is meant to be fun, and marquee letters spelling “Play Ball” encourages the sportier side of both kids and adults in this stunning Arizona home.
Blu Interiors uses marquee letters to spell out “ATL” in a “playroom” for adults in honor the homeowner’s love for the city of Atlanta. The letters really work with the rustic, vintage vibe of the space.
What a fun way for a little girl to learn her name! Nina Magon of Contour Interior Design uses bright letters to illumniate this nursery which mixes rustic industrial style with glamour.
If spelling out “BETH” ends up being a little too obvious or gets vetoed by my husband, maybe I’ll opt for a symbol like the arrow designer Karen Wolf used in what has got to be the hippest nursery ever!
