If you feel overwhelmed choosing plants and designing a garden for your own home, one place to start is to determine the architectural style of your home. From there, you can find landscape styles and plants used most often with that style. For example, Victorian homes might be found with a potager or cottage garden. Below is a listing of Architectural styles. In some instances I have linked to Pinterest, with a board full of ideas. I appreciate a recent presentation about researching a houses history. Included here are architectural styles, landscape styles, and garden themes.
Beaux-Artsarchitecture "expresses the academic neoclassicalarchitectural style taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. The style "Beaux Arts" is above all the cumulative product of two-and-a-half centuries of instruction under the authority, first, of the Académie royale d'architecture (1671–1793), then, following the French Revolution of the late 18th century, of the Architecture section of the Académie des Beaux-Arts (1795– ). The organization under the Ancien Régime of the competition for the "Grand Prix de Rome" in architecture, offering a chance to study in Rome, imprinted its codes and aesthetic on the course of instruction, which culminated during the Second Empire (1852–1870) and the Third Republic that followed. The style of instruction that produced Beaux-Arts architecture continued without major interruption until 1968."

It is named after King James I of England, with whose reign (1603-1625 in England) it is associated. At the start of James' reign there was little stylistic break in architecture, as Elizabethan trends continued their development. However his death in 1625 came as a decisive change towards more classical architecture, with Italian influence, was in progress, led by Inigo Jones; the style this began is sometimes called Stuart architecture, or English Baroque.
