Sometimes you just want to be able to say something without actually saying it. Echoing this sentiment, slogan tees have taken the fashion world by storm, so why not treat your home to the same dose of wit? Whether you’re looking for wall art exuding a little wisdom or a candle to make you chuckle, Savoir Flair’s shopping guide to typography-inspired home accents is the place to start – regardless of how you’re feeling.
The Cheeky Candle
A moody blend of cedarwood, hyacinth, burnt fig, and cassis notes – with just the right amount of sarcasm attached. This hand-poured candle from Aussie cult brand Damselfly will burn for up to 80 hours but has a facade that will make you smile long after.
The Wise Wall Art
Do you remember crediting virtually all of your knowledge as a teenager to the lyrics of 1999 hit single “Everybody’s Free” by Baz Luhrmann? Well, it’s time to take a refresher course on life, courtesy of this wall art by The Park Print Company.

The Honest Hamper
No one will want to take a peek into your “dirty laundry” with a bathroom accessory as honest as this one by Urban Outfitters. Even better? The standing hamper doubles as a laundry bag with handles and says “Clean AF” on the other side.

The Nonchalant Wall Clock
If you think punctuality is so passé, this one’s for you. Use it to add a feminine pop of color to your space and (smugly) distance yourself from society’s relentless obsession with time.
