Message Art For the Home | Chris Loves Julia

A couple weeks ago, I ordered this light up marquee sign and it has been a fun addition to our decor, and at night, it’s extra special to have the light on. It runs on batteries, or you can plug it in, so it doesn’t have to be close to a cord which is nice.

This is our second decor piece where you can spell out what you’re thinking, or I like to say, what our home is thinking. We also have a letter board (this one from Letterfolk) that bounces between the living room and the playroom which can hold longer quotes if we choose.

I’ve seen similar pieces popping up everywhere, so I rounded up a few of my favorite letter boards, light boxes and pendants for the home that you can spell out anything you’d like. Our friends have a cute pendant banner hanging in their home that says “Happy Everything” year round and it makes me smile every time I see it. Giving our rooms a voice or voicing our thoughts adds such a quirky and personal touch to a room.

    My brother lived in your palisades house for 2 years. I have so many good memories there. Sad.
