The crown moulding combination above starts with a boxed our cornice and is finished with a 4-1/2″ crown and 3″ bed moulding. This moulding style would be a common in the classic Colonial Revival architectural style. The Colonial Revival style uses a mix of bold and light profiles which were typical in the 1770’s and 1780’s.

The crown moulding package above would be considered an Early American millwork package.  This collection of moulding is a inspired package that is subtle and clean-lined.  Note the simple beading plane at the bottom of the crown combination. This was very common to help add decoration and adornment.

The crown moulding combination above uses a unique fascia board with a simple cove at the bottom to create a strong shadow line and give extra depth. Finishing off this combination is a simple crown moulding (KB314 Crown Moulding) with a bead and a bed moulding (KB324 Bed Moulding). This crown combination would be considered a Federal moulding package.

The crown moulding combination above is an intricate combination using 6 different profiles and blocking.  Historically, combinations this elaborate would have been used in entrances to homes, or formal dining rooms, and then less intricate combinations and profiles would be used throughout the rest of the home.  This combination would have been most common in Georgian moulding and millwork packages.

The crown combination above uses a simple crown moulding and an inverted base. This would be found in a Greek Revival moulding package. Many mouldings found in the Greek Revival style have flat faces in an effort to mimic stone. This looks great today as s simple, yet bold application.

Similar to the Greek Revival combination, the crown moulding package above uses a simple crown moulding with an inverted base moulding.  This helps create a look that would be considered Traditional Revival.  This Traditional Revival style represents an effort to take the classical ideals of the colonial period and adapt them to modern expectations for new homes and houses.
