Decor By Numbers…Easy As 1, 2, 3

It’s a bit mind-blowing to think about how many different languages, dialects, and even accents there are in the world, and how, ironically, they’ve actually (in most instances) kept us from communicating from one another. Luckily, there is one universally written mode of expression that brings us back together: numbers! They can infuse a touch of humor, as well as an inherent, architectural and clean element to any room by way of painted or decoupaged furniture, art, or home decor pieces. Though we have different names for these numerical symbols, (be they cardinal, ordinal, or nominal), when displayed like the following “Design Candy”, they speak and convey a decor message that’s sweeter than words.
