>{Interior Design} You can "Count" on this Trend


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).
