The Elizabethan era was an era of art above all else. Elegance reflected in all areas of the peoples’ lives. From the entertainment and language to the churches and castles, beauty shone bright.There were many vents for artistic creativity during the Elizabethan era; countless instruments, painting, books, playwright, and last but not by any stretch the least, architecture. Elizabethan architecture has a vast amount of variety and personality, the buildings reflected the pride of both the inhabitants and the builders.
Architects of the Elizabethan era designed many amazingly beautiful buildings and structures. Elizabethan architecture went further than just what the architects told the builders to do and the builders are given far less credit than they deserve. They carved out amazingly intricate designs into the wood and stone of these buildings, they poured their souls into their work and were still forgotten because what are they but some random members of the lower class.

Elizabethan homes do often however look quite comfortable, except the most likely thing to have happened is that the original owners wanted it to look as though they lived a cozy yet luxurious lifestyle. One that most likely would be far too costly to be a viable option to any but royalty. Meaning that the materials used to make the furnishings was probably very cheap and only visually appealing.
The men who constructed Elizabethan homes and establishments were very dedicated to their work and spent countless hours carving at a panel of wood that will serve no purpose other than to make someones ceiling look weirdly fancy. They were artistically genius and poured their very souls into their work and somehow they are not known throughout history like other artists such as Van Gogh, no because they were just lowly peasants with unrecognized talent that needed money, which they would not get a whole lot of. The masons of the Elizabethan did wonders with the little education they possessed and yet they weren’t even given enough respect to even have their name written on some business ledger.
