Georgian architecture conjures up images of stately houses on vast, sweeping estates, where the privileged would mingle amid champagne, music, and starlit skies. In actuality, a Georgian home plan is simply a colonial design, albeit, it originated among wealthy New Englanders and genteel Southern land owners. The influences that make the Georgian home “stately” can be traced to the classical influences of the Italian Renaissance. The impressive facades, multi-storied composition, symmetrically aligned windows, and regal entrances were designed to create a feeling of grandeur as well as balance.
Let’s make one thing clear from the get-go: you don’t need to reside in a coastal setting to live in a Lowcountry home design. For the past decade, they have become an increasingly popular style in towns and cities all across America, particularly with homeowners who have an affinity for coastal architecture or nostalgic memories of a childhood summer beach house.
The farmhouse home design has been an increasingly popular trend over the past few years. Americans, seemingly of every age and interest, have been drawn to the idyllic image and pastoral simplicity that it evokes. As for the term, farmhouse was derived originally as a description of location rather than style. A farmhouse was basically any home built on a vast expanse of land or large agricultural tract. Over time the simple, no-nonsense design elements typical of such a rural dwelling were exemplified by an unpretentiousness and functionality that city dwellers adopted as a matter of practical taste.
