I’ll take here Boston as an example, where this style is distinctive. Here, the painted wooden gates are really typical and distinctive. A specific impression of the character of each form. For example, you can watch this at the venues of the ceiling and the walls.

The following charts illustrate how many different items in use come to achieve the effect, which characterizes a particular style. Variations are as varied as the number of Meißner and architects, which interpret these elements and they are always with these in combination. This one has so many different styles.

Picture frame, as you could previously see’s on the image, are very popular in this type of houses. The window and door casings also consist of two separate borders.

Here you can see a very detailed ceiling, which here has a trimmed edge, which is surrounded by a black border. The great design of the foot bar also has shoe models. These help to bridge the gap between the base and the floor.

Also this style is well known for its wonderful and detailed items. Funnily enough was the original idea, to simplify the traditional architectural features and to modernize. There are many variations of this style. In this image you will get a combination, which for craftsman houses very typical can be seen. The Crown has a Cyma, which is very typical of the classical architecture, has very much to do but also with the Victorian and colonial variants. The borders around the doors and Windows are usually very simple and flat, have plain edges, though the header lines often come into usage. “Stop” is called the thin border and the base of the upper part and the upper part of the door frame.

This is also a wonderful job if you have a lover that can contribute something to the beautification of the House happy. If there however many details, panels and boxes are in the planned construction, you should contact a carpenter or Builder, who has much experience with this type of work.

The understanding of classical architecture and the appropriate implementation of the installation is an art in itself.
