Spanish Colonial / Rustic street number
November 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're finishing our house - it has a Spanish Colonial / Rustic feel. In front, we have a high stone wall and we want to put a street number that's fitting our style. So far, we've decided to put a cast iron plaque (rust-proofed of course) painted black with the number (12) cut out. Does anyone have suggestions on a proper font that doesn't look modern ... and/or any further suggestions? I haven't found ANY help in my Google searches - so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Oh ... the number will be on the wall, not on the gate.

Use a serif font with a thick stroke. If you are going to cut the letters out of the ground, then they may need to be pretty big to be legible in front of that stone pattern. Conceal a light behind the plate.
