What Houzz contributors are saying:
It wasn’t always so easy. Marquee letters were once found mainly outside of carnival acts, circus tents and theaters, and they were used to let people know who was performing or what kind of act to expect. (Surely this is how the phrase “your name in lights” was born.) In the recent past, vintage letters were all that was available. Drawn to their fun connotations and memories of fairs past, people started buying them at flea markets and antiques stores and displaying them in their homes. Of course, with older pieces, the letter and symbol combinations were limited.In this room by Echelon Custom Homes, the glowing phrase stationed above a ceramic chicken collection leaves no doubt about the lighthearted spirit of the homeowners.
This spectacular vignette greets visitors at the top of the stairs. The homeowner's collection of roosters is proudly displayed beneath carnival letters that spell out the word, FUN. When it comes to this amazing home, that pretty much sums it up!The paint colors shown here include:Lemon Twist 6909 (Sherwin-Williams)Invigorate 6886 (Sherwin-Williams)Spa 6765 (Sherwin Williams)Deep Carnation 2086-40 (Benjamin Moore)More: 20 Spectacular Beach Houses | Browse beach-house photos
