Current Obsession: Vintage Letters


I’m currently obsessed with vintage letters as a home decor. Some of those letters were used for theatre marquee and industrial signs.

They make great wall art by making a word or just a single letter for the kids room or in any room in a loft or a home, even an office or a kitchen.


Neon museum in Vegas is the place where I’d love to check out. “Neon Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the rich history of the city through its most iconic art forms, the neon sign. The Neon Museum’s collection consists of three components:  the Neon Boneyard, the Downtown Gallery and the Las Vegas Signs project. “

  1. This are great images, thanks for sharing them. I am a massive fan of large letters and I’m wonder why the current facination with them exists? Is it a nostalgic thing, or an alternative to rectangular wall art? Anyway great images.

  2. Check out the sign for the Palm Springs ACE as well. It’s pretty sweet.

  5. I saw the one from the Portland ACE lobby and that’s what reminded me… Love those hotels.
