Tudor Home Specialists

By cortney In Uncategorized with Comments Off on Tudor Home Specialists



How can you transport yourself back in time, straight into a medieval English fairy tale? Sure, you could read a book, but there’s another solution outside of literature: architecture! From roughly 1890-1940, there was a very popular architectural style known as the Tudor Revival. Focused on emulating late-medieval/early-modern English architecture of the 16th century, this style is romantic, nostalgic and, let’s just admit it, totally adorable. But don’t let that fool you- there is still some very serious architectural design going on here.

It’s a style that’s focused on detail and craftsmanship.
