Found a new book published by Monacelli Press, The American Style, which is a wonderful tribute to our very own American Classical style! Though California is not widely known for this style – as much as, say, the East Coast – you can still find this colonial revival style if you know where to look!
Right here in East Sacramento are homes that are excellent (and beautiful!) examples of the classical use of balance and symmetry. Details, including the use of wood or shingles,porticos or recessed entry porches, pediments over the center entry, and shutters, are consistent with proportional touches that say “Classical.”
