Modern House Numbers

Like doorknobs, mailboxes, and fencing, house numbers are crucial for broadcasting a home's essential modern-ness. Neutra is a guaranteed winner, font-wise, but consider a few other modern options.

Architectural pioneers Mark Schatz and Anne Eamon built their own 700-square-foot house with a curved roof in Houston, Texas. The pair bought a small sheet of copper, cut out their house numbers, mixed and poured some concrete, and voilá—their own groovy house numbers for $125.
