Decorate by Numbers: Numerical Kids Decor

Math, they say, is the universal language. And it's a lot prettier than Esperanto, so why not choose some number-based decor to get your child started early? I've rounded up some of my favorite pieces for kids' rooms featuring a plethora of digits as well as some inspirational spaces using numbers as decor.

  1. Bold Number Cards are displayed on a shelf in SwissMiss creator Tina Roth Eisenberg's daughter's room on Design*Sponge.
  2. Letter Knobs on this sunny yellow dresser in Ike's room on Apartment Therapy are a simple, inexpensive way to make an ordinary dresser memorable.
  3. Large Wooden Numbers on the wall can be subtle if you paint them the same color as the wall. For a bolder look, paint them in a contrasting color. Seen on House to Home.
  4. Numbered Baskets in a boy's playroom on Architectural Digest. You could buy numbered baskets or paint them on yourself. Use them to help organize storage or just for fun.
  5. Framed Flash Cards, at Chez Larsson, are easy-peasy and can make a minimalist statement. Extra points if you can find some vintage ones.
  6. Cloud and Raindrops Print at Etsy shop Little Design Haus, $25.
  7. Numbers Pouf at Land of Nod has a modern, graphic appeal and is grown up enough to use in the living room.
  8. India's Heritage Felt Numbers Pillow has wacky quilting to make the numbers even more whimsical. $90 at Wayfair.
  9. Kidd Number Rug, Brown and Blue, $300 for 3 1/2' x 5 1/2', at Rugs & Blinds. This rug is colorful enough to match lots of palettes.
  10. Forrest 123 wall art, $20 at Olli & Lime. This one not only goes to 11... it goes to 20
