Doors offer another chance to play up architecture and add rich texture and tone. After several decades with a lackluster fiberglass door, the entry was updated with a glass-paned door with an organic walnut look.
It's the details that add a touch of Mediterranean charm to this large bedroom, one of five in the home: arched windows, a pretty arched wooden door leading into the ensuite bathroom and wrought-iron scrollwork on the headboard.
This streamlined porch area features many structural details to create a visually interesting entrance to the HGTV Dream Home 2014. A tile path leads to a light wood door flanked by large windows, which opens up the space for a welcoming feel.
