Tudor & Gothic Revival 1910 - 1940

Influenced by the arts and crafts style and ideology, both Tudor and Gothic revival styles were against over ornamentation and the mass production aesthetic brought on by the Victorian era. Historical influences came by way of medieval architecture, cottages, quaint settings and the romance of both England and Hollywood. Half timbered facades, rustic stone work, leaded glass windows and cozy wood trimmed interiors are some of the hallmarks of the Tudor and Gothic revival styles. With many homes built in the 1910’s and 20s in (then) suburban areas of town, Tudor houses were often designed with a neighbourhood plan in mind in order to showcase architectural individuality and neighbourhood uniformity. Lighting from the time is often very rustic in appearance with a emphasis on crests, candles, hammered details and emblems of chivalry and knighthood.
