Numerals are enhancing a variety of home products these days. Numbered goods actually have roots in old-fashioned general store paraphernalia, such as numbered canisters and such. Though not a new idea they are certainly back in style and perfect for adding to your beach cottage.
Country Business Editor, Susan Wagner, recently shared that "the style is part of a larger typographic trend that features not only numbers; but also letters and other symbols."
We love the numbered look and recently stenciled our 'lucky number' 8 on a favorite vintage-style tin pitcher from Ikea. It holds a place of honor on top of our favorite books about cottages and immediately draws attention from visitors.
The look incorporates so easily into a nautical or beach cottage style that we also added some Vintage Key Plates to our list of recommended products on Open Sky (see below).
We've assembled some inspirational number photos (click on caption below each pic for more info) to get your creative juices flowing . ..
