There’s one piece of furniture that has traveled with me through various moves: the dresser my parents commissioned from a local craftsman for my childhood bedroom. Growing up, I used it as a surface for my coloring projects, placed our family cat in the drawers to make him a “bed” and hid candy in it to evade my sweet-toothed family. But over 20 years later, it’s still a beautiful, solid piece that I’m proud to use and display. That’s the benefit of local, American-made products—they often have a higher standard of quality and workmanship than those that are imported and mass-produced.

the scripted home

Words are fundamental to the design of civilization. In Clare Youngs’ new book, Letter Crafts: 35 Creative Projects for Stylish Home Decorations, she provides step-by-step instructions on how to create accents using elements of typography.

This won’t be the same for every project. “It might be that the style and thickness of a particular letter work best for that specific project,” Youngs writes. Scour free font websites like 1001fonts.com and fontspace.com for scripts you can download. SIZE AND SHAPE Once you’ve chosen your font, type the letter(s) in a document on your computer and print. You can either use the template as is or use your scanner to adjust the size until it’s as large as you want. This…
