The Gothic Revival

From Gio:
From the late 18th century to early 19th century, one of the most popular architecture styles was The Gothic Revival, which takes its name from the medieval Gothic architecture it imitated. Many palaces and churches were decorated with typical elements of the Gothic style, such as turrets, pointed-arched windows and crenelated parapets, but the materials weren't the same as those used in the Medieval Age. For instance, stone was replaced with stucco. And this new style wasn't limited to architecture either. Furniture, clocks, mirrors.. many artifacts now sported Gothic details and were used to decorate Georgian and Regency houses. (Read entire post.)
