You'll spot doorways such as these across the South. The one on the right, with a rectangular transom and broken pediment, is in the Georgian style. The entrance on the left, paired with a semicircular fanlight and full pediment, is another example of the Federal Period. The trim surrounds on both are built to suggest thin engaged columns.
Works best with: stoops or side entrances of traditional homes. Because of the pediments, these entries aren't suited for porches, which typically have low ceilings.
