House Numbers in Transoms

Ah, spring has finally sprung. And the first outdoor project on my list? Painting my house number on the transom over the front door. I've been looking around the web for a little inspiration. Here are some favorites I've found:

These examples are all very traditional in nature, which is where I'm leaning, too. However, do you think there's a chance here to introduce a little modernism with the font? My place ish a colonial-style home with divided lites in the transom (four lites, four digits in the house number).

When I complete the project, I'll report back here to you!
