Translating Trends: The Monogram

Embroidered, stamped, woven or sewn, no matter the method, monogramming is an extra special way to personalize items for your home and life. Have a great pillow that's been passed down through the years? Add your initials, or your grandmothers, in a lower corner! Below, a round-up of my favorite monogramming resources to help you personalize...just about everything...in just about every room in the house!

In the Bedroom

When monogrammed, Pottery Barn's simple, lovely Plaza linen collection is dressed up just a touch. Monogramming just one element in a room, like these shams, adds a slightly traditional touch. Remember...a little initial goes a long way!

In the Kitchen

This cute monogrammed cheese plate and cheese knife (also monogrammed!) from C Wonder would be an adorable wedding gift for a gourmand couple. This funky new shop, started by Chris Burch (yes...Tory Burch's ex), is chock full of bright, preppy pieces for your home and wardrobe. Many of them come with the option to truly make your own.

In the Living Room

West Elm's menswear-inspired herringbone throws can be monogrammed for an ultra personal touch. This simple, understated monogram is a single letter in a less-traditional cursive font. So pretty and modern!

In the Bathroom

For those lucky enough to live near Savannah, GA, Number Four Eleven has a storefront where you can see their gorgeous inventory in person. Everyone else will have to browse their collection of furniture, home accessories and bed and bath linens on their web site. For the items that can be monogrammed, like these gorgeous Matouk Cairo Towels, you can choose from a wide array of font style and thread colors...the world is your oyster!

Do it right the first time. It will save you time, energy, and money!

Spend the money to do something right and buy what you love. It may seem like it’s costing more than you’d like, but it always costs more to re-do it later!
