"Making Your Mark . . . "


In a world overcrowded with mass-produced merchandise, it's always nice to have a sense of ownership.  A sense of individuality. To be certain that one has 'made ones mark' on the world.  As a Southerner, monogramming has always been the answer when proof of ownership is needed.  The world of monogramming can get a wee bit complicated at times - so here's a wee collection of guidelines to follow . . .

Monogramming for a Lady

"Classic white bathroom towels take on a whole new importance with a wee bit of monogramming.  
This classic black and white master bathroom needed a 
little panache - and custom towels were the perfect answer."
                                                    - Scot Meacham Wood

Monogramming for Gentleman


Personally, I almost always use a 'diamond' monogram for myself.

Monogramming for a Couple

There are always exception to every rule - like creating a monogram for a couple with differing last names.  In our own home, Leontine Linens created this for our bedroom.  Always ask your monogramming shop if they can make something personalized for you.  Customizing the customization is the ultimate in making your mark!

Even the little things can be monogrammed.  La Plates created this custom barware for our showcase house several years ago. 

We love a good monogram around these parts.  SMWHome customizes all manner of items for your home.  Contact as to find out more!

Apologies for being behind-hand in commenting. You’ve given us some gorgeous examples...but, as a fellow monogram lover (I tell the children it is a prophylactic against senility), I find myself wondering how much is too much, especially in decorating? Is the rule one mono per room? One per house? Where is the line between taste and projected narcissism?
