The Prairie home style is one of the first architectural styles to originate in the United States. Popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School Designs, Prairie homes embrace the belief that a building should appear to grow organically from its site. It uses long horizontal bands of windows and trim to evoke the prairie landscape.
Colors & Finishes
In describing the Prairie style color palette, Frank Lloyd Wright said his choices came from nature. "Go to the woods and fields for color schemes," he said. "Use the soft, warm, optimistic tones of earth and autumn leaves."
The most commonly used colors within Wright's woods and fields color palette are earthy browns and rusts, autumnal reds and golds, the warm tans and beiges of natural stone, and leafy greens.
