English Colonial Style homes of the 1600s and 1700s look different than their modern counterparts today. Most early English settlers built two-story wood frame homes with a few small diamond-shaped lead pane windows. The homes generally had an open floor design with a fireplace in the middle to heat the entire house during the cold New England winters. The central chimney is a key feature of this early home style. The most notable English Colonial Style home is the House with Seven Gables.

Wow, super pretty. But would it work with a white house, red door, red trim, and dark blue accent trim? The blue and white here is so beautiful and simple.
