Colonial Revival homes first appeared during the 1900s, when architects and artists were inspired by early American colonial designs. The majority of these first homes had Georgian features.

Several Clayton homes have features that capture the interior details and the nostalgia of this time period. Think white trim, wainscotting and crown molding. Ornate details, like window cornices with filigree designs and elegant arches, paired with soft colors and polished floors, are right at home with this style.

Craftsman homes grew out of the 1800s Arts and Crafts movement, which emphasized handmade, quality that was meant to be accessible for everyone. Its popularity reached the United States by the early 1900s, in response to the more mass-produced styles of the Industrial Revolution.
