Another cool thing about decorating with wall words is that you can often choose the font style as well as the color.  Some fonts look better than others; some are formal, some are whimsical, and some go best in children’s rooms.  For the living space, you’ll want a more serious and formal font.  For playrooms and kitchens, you can get a little more lighthearted.
