Seems such a shame to buy a modern house, then have to resort to slapping some nasty brass Home Depot numbers on it just to you can tell the mailman where to deliver your bills. Well, the people at Custom House Numbers have the antidote. Any font, yes ANY font you want, made into house numbers. If thats too much choice for one person, they have a pre-selected set of fonts on the page that will all make your home look 3.7 times better from the outside (I’m just guessing at that number).
My favourite numbers on the site, and the ones we’ll be buying for the new home (more about that later!) is Neutraface: based on a typeface by California architect Richard Neutra who was master of mid-century modern domestic house design. You can get these numbers (and letters) in sizes from tiny to honkin’, stainless steel or aluminum, polished or brushed – even within the one typeface there are oodles of ways to customize it to fit the front of your home.
It’s this year’s must-have mail order accessory for your Don Mills split level or bungalow!
