Scripted Style

At H&D we believe that there is no magic script for designing and styling, but this style is definitely a little… scripted. We love the use of flowing script in everything from textiles to dinner plates.  They can represent a statement, a feeling, a whimsical rhyme, a poignant quote or personal message.

You can find flowing handwriting on armchairs, hessian textiles, cushions and a heap of other items throughout homewares stores and you can even make some yourself.

Take a look at some of the ways a scripted design can be used in styling your space.



Would you like to get this look with your crockery? It’s super simple. Just get a sharpie permanent marker and write away on a clean surface of any over-proof crockery. Put it in the over before you turn it on and then bake it for 30 minutes at 150 degrees centigrade. Don’t put crockery into a pre-heated over as it may crack, whereas putting it into a cool over allows the piece to warm up gradually and there is less chance of cracking.

You can make really simple, thoughtful and creative gifts for family and friends like this customised mug set for wedding present. This idea can be replicated on the outside of vases, pots, jugs, decorative boxes, canvasses … you’re only limited by your imagination.


Try personalising photo frames with a message to give someone special as gifts. You could also try it on any glass frame around your house and it’s so simple to change the message when you feel like it. (just wipe down the writing with a rough sponge dipped in warm, soapy water and start again). We added some cute fabric to a simple white frame and a few little messages and wishes as a gift for a baby’s room.

Add a little bit of charm to your home and gifts with some scripted style.
