Apart from the characteristic symmetric appearance, the most striking thing about these revived houses was the placement of the chimneys. Unlike traditional central roof position, chimneys of these houses were offset on any of side of the house, excluding the frontal side, of course. Modern Cape Cod style house exterior ornamentation is very limited as compared to the traditional houses. Since these are relatively smaller homes and are quite inexpensive to build, regular houses started being replaced by Cape Cod style houses. This trend was followed by the neighborhood areas of Massachusetts, including Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Today, these houses are the most desired style homes for the hobbyists, investors, and real estate marketers. If you want to purchase a Cape Cod house, then you need to understand that the price gamut of these houses varies with respect to the features, location, size, and age of the house.
I remember walking into this expansive apartment which looked like an old English woman stayed there. It had floral prints and contrasting paint colors that were subdued yet not keeping up with the times. Everything in it from the furniture to the showpieces, went against the entire home's set up. The one thing that did stand out quite boldly and might I add, in my face - was a center table with a smooth finished solid (possibly marble) that had three dolphins bathed in seaform color, standing back-to-back while the table's flat top balanced on their snouts. It was hideous to say the least. They probably should have gone with something more subtle like woodwork and engraved dolphins, and not something out of Alice in Wonderland.
While there is no harm in using decorative fonts, designs, and lettering, the main intention of placing an address plaque should not be side tracked. Ensure the plaque is visible from the far side of the street and is not obstructed by foliage. Consider installing lights below or above the address plaque to focus on the plaque as well as to provide better visibility. Ensure the numbers are large enough so that they are legible from a distance.
So, here's the difference. You don't hang it like a usual clock. You keep it: on a desk, on your mantel, on a chest of drawers, even on the floor. There's the drama you were looking for all your life. There's the style element that is so unique and different that there's no matching up to it with any other accessory.
