Synopsis: A celebration of early American house forms, the Colonial Revival emerged in the late 19th century and was quickly embraced by the American public. It has remained the nation's style of choice for well over a hundred years, appearing in banks, post offices, schools, libraries, and a majority of suburban homes. Marked by dignified symmetry, large column-supported porticoes, and Palladian windows, Colonial Revival architecture is found in virtually every city across the United States.
In this beautiful volume, Richard Guy Wilson, the foremost expert on the subject, leads the reader on a tour of 40 of the finest examples of the Colonial Revival, illustrating its evolution, from its earliest sources, as well as its regional variations. Including exquisite, antique-filled houses by many of America's greatest domestic architects, from McKim, Mead & White to Robert A.M. Stern, this landmark survey is filled with 275 gorgeous photographs that capture the elegance of this much-loved style. The only book of its kind, The Colonial Revival House is a must-have for design professionals, architecture enthusiasts, and Americana buffs.
