Bring Touches of the Italian Renaissance to Your Traditional New England Home

The classic Italianate home design style weaves elements of the Italian Renaissance into modern homes and features exterior elements that make homes stand out. Elements of this design style can also be integrated into a traditional New England home to reflect your personal style and enhance your home's best features. The most classic Italianate architectural details include:

    • Exquisite Exteriors - Elements such as flat or low pitched roofs, quoins, cupolas, and corbels all contribute to the classic look of an Italianate style home. Many Italianate homes in the United States also boast an attached signorial tower.

    • Balconies - Many homes have balconies with wrought iron balustrades or railings reminiscent of the Renaissance era. Retrofitting your existing balcony with wrought iron elements is a simple way to bring elements of the Italianate design style to your home.

  • Detailed Windows and Doors - These homes' doors and windows are fanciful and well-detailed. Windows are often arched, pedimented, or boast angled features. Doors are pedimented or glazed and may include a triangular shaped gable.
