Colonial Revival architecture

This thread is for buildings and architecture in the Colonial Revival style. Colonial Revival is the movement where architectural styles from American colonization and independence were brought back. This includes Georgian Revival, Federal Revival, and Neoclassical architecture in the United States. In other countries, Georgian Revival or Neoclassical would be a better description of architecture replicating that of the late 18th- and early 19th-century.

Examples of American Colonial Revival being executed tastefully in the UK and Norway.

And some bad examples (all from either Japan or Staten Island):
