Dentils, always a good move, here they effectively animate what would have been a less interesting cornice.
Notice how the geometry of the balustrade on the second floor visually supports the fine details of the masonry work.
I like the hot terracotta color of the pottery, and Â the flaxy rust of the plant with the brick body color of this home. The crisp white treillage work contrasts pleasantly.
Usually bright red trim and lots of diagonal millwork might be difficult to pull together, but somehow here it all seems so innocent and charming. Notice the diagonal accents even on the shutters.
From bottom to top: good concrete forms, well spaced railings, double porch supports, and those sweet leaded windows all make this porch a standout.
The colors emphasise the materials nicely, even down to the shells at the base of the post.
From the 1890’s era, Romanesque Stonework was alway solid masonary construction. Stone veneer techniques would be developed later. The solid stone made buildings of this style rare and expensive.
