Since this particular trend began, I have watched it grow from a unique finishing touch in a perfectly designed room, to grossly overdone in a place that now sends so many messages, you no longer can be comfortable in such trendy chaos.
Don't get me wrong; I love what I call "textual" design as much as the next person, however, be sure other design elements in the room convey the same message as you hang on the wall. Having said that here are some tips on how to make your room send your message with or without the sign.
Place this sign and others like it (home sweet home, welcome) in a room large enough to "gather," such as the dining room or living area. It may sound obvious, but I have seen it in hallways, entryways and yes even the bathroom (Um, no thank you). Also if this particular text or one similar is displayed, it is a good idea to have plenty of seating, lighting and for textiles to be cozy and inviting. Warm colors such as creamy white, shades of grey, or pale blues are the perfect wall colors that will make people want to stay awhile and feel comfortable.
