The Georgian Style began in the 18th – 19th Century and was named after the monarchs of the House of Hanover ( George I – George IV) The American meaning of the “Georgian Style” is any architecture built during this time, while the British meaning is more focused on specific architectural styles of the period. This style gained its inspiration from the styles of ancient Rome and ancient Greece. There is an emphasis on proportion and balance as planned out by ratios and mathematics (for example to make sure height of a window is proportionate to its width).
