Love Typography? Check Out These Boards on Pinterest!

June 24, 2015 6:35 pm

Typography is a type of design that makes words and letters more appealing to readers, turning a design’s text into a work of art in itself. Using a variety of carefully chosen typefaces, varying line lengths and thoughtful letter spacing, typography changes even the most basic text into something beautiful and exciting. Here are three inspiring Pinterest boards for fans of typography.

Hand Lettering
Hand lettering is a particular type of typography in which designers sketch their own typefaces by hand. This Pinterest board features some of the best examples of hand lettering from around the web, as well as prints and posters available for purchase from those designers.

Typography
The main Typography Pinterest board is filled with a variety of different types of typography that will provide some major inspiration for designers, bloggers, and other creative types. It also includes downloadable fonts to help you spice up any project.

Calligraphy
If you prefer typography that’s a bit more elegant and decorative, the Calligraphy Pinterest is a very aesthetically pleasing source of inspiration. This board is ideal for wedding planning, fancy parties, or simply for those who want to pick up calligraphy as a hobby. It also includes links to online calligraphy classes and shops filled with decorative calligraphy prints.

Want a great sports bar? Come to Taco Mac. With a location in the Prado Shopping Center, Taco Mac was founded by a couple of friends from Buffalo, who wanted to bring the sports bar experience south of the border. They kept the old sign from the previous business, and the name stuck! With large screen television surrounding the bar and dining room, there is no place better to hang out with friends and watch the game. Beer lovers will enjoy selecting from one of the biggest selections of draft beers anywhere. And if you like real Buffalo wings here they are! The rest of the menu is pretty tasty too, guaranteeing a delicious meal for you, your friends and family.

How to Decorate Your Home With Tapestries

June 10, 2015 4:50 pm

While tapestries may remind you of your college dorm room, newer versions of these eclectic wall hangings are anything but frumpy. Updated tapestries are chic and modern, and they can be used throughout your home in a number of different ways. Here are just a few great ways to temporarily change up your wall color by using large tapestries.

  • Use a tapestry as a focal point. The first thing you should remember when decorating with a tapestry is that it will instantly become the focal point of the room. That means that should anchor it behind the headboard of your bed, as the backdrop of your sofa or on a bare wall in the hallway so that it doesn’t overpower the room.
  • Choose a complementary color scheme. No matter how wild and crazy your tapestry, you want to make sure that the colors used throughout pair well with the rest of your room.
  • Drape it over furniture. If you don’t want to hang it on the wall, you can drape your tapestry over an old armchair or small futon to breathe new life into its tired upholstery.
  • Hang it from the ceiling. For an even more unique effect, secure your tapestry to the ceiling and leave the rest of the walls blank.
