HISTORIC HOME PLANS
SHINGLE STYLE HOME PLANS
The Shingle Style found its expression in the homes of America as the artistic taste of the American public moved away from the highly ornate forms of Victorian architecture, such as Queen Anne. The Arts and Crafts movement proposed a simplification of decoration and an appreciation of natural materials in their natural state. This resonated strongly with a culture grown tired of Victorian excesses. Architects such as McKim Mead and White popularized this new, simpler ideal among all levels of society, from the simplest cottage to the grandest seaside residence for the high society of New York.
