Lush Tradition: Elements of the American Tudor Living Room

In her Field Guide to American Houses, Virginia McAlester notes that American Tudor style homes made up about 25 percent of new houses built in the 1920s, second only to Colonial Revivals. Today, American Tudors’ free-form medieval roots continue to adapt to a wide range of dwellings, from single-level homes close to the center of town to sprawling countryside estates.

Living rooms provide a particularly interesting place to look for new interpretations of American Tudor’s telltale dark hardwood flooring, strapwork ceilings, the Tudor “four-centered” arch and more.
