On a recent walk, I was taken by the sheer variety and personality of the house numbers along my route. Modern, historic, simple, ornate. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  10 Downing Street.  We all know the inhabitants of these famous addresses. Their positions and personalities are known to all via ample media coverage.

For those of us not living at a residence with a famed street address, we can take the numbers bestowed by our municipality and truly make them our own.  Frontgate, Home Depot, and Etsy offer a bevy of options to let your personality come across in the numbers.
