The entryway of this Hawaiian stunner features an arched doorway with an intricate, carved wood transom and iron-laced doors. A warm faux finish on the walls gives the space a cozy, homey feel despite its grand dimensions. A covered portico protects arriving guests from the elements, whether sun or rain.
This large white bathroom storage cabinet features three arched glass-front doors, in addition to cabinets and drawers located below. The cabinet offers plenty of room for showcasing decorative blue vases and towels, as well as storing essentials in this neutral contemporary master bathroom.
When lit up at night, this backyard oasis truly shines. Well designed landscape lighting puts the spotlight in all the right places. Gorgeous arches over the entry doors are highlighted and shadows are used in a smart way to add dramatic effect.
Surrounded by glass doors and arched windows, this sitting room is bright and comfy, thanks to plush chairs and an extra-long sofa. An over-sized coffee table with gold decor is at the center of the space, matching the tray ceiling accent. Floor to ceiling curtains blend seamlessly into the room.
The poolhouse offers luxuriously comfy features, including a high-end kitchen with a martini sink. Storm shutter doors tucked inside the arches drop down with a push of a button. The pool house was built only 2.5’ from the waters edge creating an unusual situation with a venial pool. To make sure the pool wall was properly supported, a newly constructed block wall supports that edge. The three main arches facing the pool hide screens and shutters to block the sun or wind.
A blend of contemporary and traditional pieces come together to create a welcoming dining space. The home's architectural features like the arched alcove and French door lend a cottage-style vibe to the space while the upholstered chairs and elegant light fixture give it a touch of formality.
The detailed rosette ceiling in the center of the room features inset antique mirrors framed in acanthus leaf moldings. The center ceiling medallion is embellished with a blue crystal chandelier. The archway leading into the family room is paneled and finished to match the cabinetry. On both sides of the arch, the designer centered two tall China cabinets with curved mullion doors.
A round pedestal table holding an Asian tree is used as a living room divider and is flanked by a large beige sofa and a contemporary seating area with modern turquoise blue arm chairs. Arched window shades cover the large windows above three sets of French doors. The contemporary seating area features a zebra print rug and glass coffee table while both sections are accented with red throw pillows.
Offset and somewhat hidden away from the front of this majestic home is a side driveway and three spacious garage entrances for the homeowner. The garage doors are arched and fabricated from weathered wood to blend with the rest of the home. The landscaping here, as designed by Mark Scott and Associates, is simple but camouflages the utilitarian purposes of the space.
Clean lines and contemporary furniture mix with traditional lighting and Mediterranean design details in this California dining room. Curved lines create harmony in the space, from the arched doorways to the recessed ceiling dome to the round mirror above a modern console. Black and white art is a theme that carries through other rooms in the home's 11,000-square-foot interior. A wall-size pocket door opens this space to one of a series of outdoor courtyards.
Five wicker chairs with cream-colored cushions are seated around a low coffee table. The seating area overlooks the surrounding plant-life and Horseshoe Bay, and a set of French doors leads back into the lakehouse. A challenge to the overall design of this home was to blend the casual lifestyle of lake living with an over-arching aesthetic that was at once both vernacular and sophisticated. Jay Corder and his team reinvented and crafted rough materials to successfully blend these competing notions.
With stunning views to match this beautiful house, this large Mediterranean-style home is situated right on the ocean. This style home became extremely popular in the U.S. from 1918 to 1940. The homes were modeled after the hacienda style, with red tile roofs, arches and plaster surfaces. This style is very popular again and features a lot of the original design elements, including porticos, balconies and ornamental details such as heavy wooden doors and multicolored tiles.
The homeowners love to entertain, so designers wanted to create a space that was functional for them. To do this, they made sure to keep the space feeling light and open by raising the arched doorway that separates the kitchen and living room space and removing the door that previously connected the rooms, creating a clear line of from the kitchen into the living room. They added a peninsula that provides seating, keeping the space functional, but they also included a small area to the left of the breakfast bar that acts as a sort of pass through, making food service between the rooms easy.
