HOME PLAN TRENDS: Georgian Home Designs

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.
