With romantic fashions and domestic practicality, Italianate homes provide a casual style of living with cultured aesthetics. These homes feature prominent towers with round-arched windows. Italianate homes feature series of pairs and work to unite the structure of a home with its surroundings, providing openness to both the interior floor plan and exterior facade.
- Structure: Cubic, square towers and everything in pairs; often features exterior pediments above doors and windows
- Exterior Doors: Usually located in the tower block, with paneled and doubled doors, and lintel or rounded above doors and occasionally a round (not elliptical) transom
- Windows: Large panes which go down to (or close to) ground level
- Colors: White and green or rosy, flesh tones with green shutters
