12" Santa Barbara Numbers, Matte Black Finish

If you're fond of a classic serif font but have a modern aesthetic, this installation is for you! The secret is to choose larger numbers, either 8" or 12" (if you have the room), and a finish that will create contrast and compliment the fixtures and hardware. Here, our 12" Santa Barbara numbers in Matte Black coordinate with the architecture and fixtures to create a coordinate look and modern feel set on this classic modern color palate.

Pro Tip:  To give a traditional serif font a modern feel, combine our larger 8" or 12" numbers with a contemporary paint palate and stylish exterior fixtures.
