I'm heading back home to Arkansas next month and its had me thinking all things southern lately. This won't come as a shock to you southerners, but to everyone else in the country, us southerners are known to monogram everything! You name it, we put our letters on it. We even monogram our babies' burp cloths and bibs. Now I'm guilty in doing this, but really, it does seem so silly to monogram something that's going to have spit up on it. But come on, a baby in a monogrammed bib?! Adorable!
Of course if you're monogramming your babies' spit rags, you're probably monogramming the nursery and its big boy or girl room.
Of course one of the most common places to put a monogram is on the shams.
This next child's space might be one of my favorite girl rooms ever. It evokes a sense of petite femininity while being lighthearted and sophisticated at the same time. The lilac is unexpected, but coordinates perfectly with the pale pink. The hand painted mural is a beautiful piece of custom artwork.
Of course one the most common places to have a monogram is on a bathroom towel. It's the attention to detail that your guests will notice most.
Of course, there's always many more options where you can put your custom stamp.
If you happen upon a monogram in a design magazine or on a designer's website, there's a high chance that it was made by Leontine Linens. They were founded in 1996 in New Orleans (of course in a southern state). As they say, they are "preserving and reinventing this classic art form, infusing it with a modern twist." I believe they have completely shifted the way monograms are seen today. They are no longer something your grandmother had but something you now desire for your new current, modern home.
