In the South, a Creole Cottage is a type of vernacular architecture originating in the Gulf Coast. The style was a dominant house type along the central Gulf Coast from about 1790 to 1840 in the former settlements of French Louisiana in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Colorful Mardi Gras streamers and a wreath adorn the front porch. 

The home's full front porch, (probably from French Caribbean islands) and the high gabled roof running parallel to the street (from French Canada) are distinct architectural design elements adopted from the French Colonial empire.
