Looking through some of the home and garden type magazines has inspired me to want to add a few new touches to the outside of my home. I’m thinking maybe a new address plaque out front might be nice. Right now we just have your standard boring, old, black, metal numbers. They aren’t even painted to make them look pretty or anything.
I adore the hanging address plaques that I saw in the magazines. They make me feel like my home is really something special because the sign really stands out. They do look more like they might fit better in front of a business instead of a residential spot though. That’s probably why I like them so much, because they really pop.
Maybe one of the more traditional address signs might be better for our house. Or even something in the middle of traditional and more modern. I think an oval sign in a bright color would be a nice compromise or mix right in between. Maybe a red with some scroll work or leaves and just the numbers from the street address to finish it off. I’m definitely not going with the boring old black anymore after seeing all of the beautiful signs. I can’t wait to get a new one.
