Inspiration: Stunner In Australia

Check out this stunner all the way from Australia! We know Paul had to be extremely selective with every detail, and we're thrilled to have made the cut for the finishing touch! This home is incredible from top to bottom. We love the massing, the materials, and the design restraint. 

Matte Black is a great choice when installing on natural and stained wood siding. Extra special here is the installation location! 

Want to achieve a similar look?
Here are some design tips from Paul's home:

1. Right Justification

Paul selected to install his numbers adjacent to the drive for visibility, but the choice of the right justification at the building edge is an extremely modern and memorable choice.

2. Installation Location

Installing your numbers in an unexpected spot adds interest. Just be sure that the location you choose isn't blocked by trees or landscapes, and allows your numbers to be visible day and night.

3. Modern Font

Paul chose our most popular Palm Springs font for its modern and iconic style. A sans serif font is typically a more modern look, regardless of the font you choose. We offer six sans serif font options. Each looks terrific in any architectural style!

Paul we love your home. Thanks for trusting us with this final detail on your exterior. We're honored! And...we'll be right over. We'd love to see this home in person!
