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.
This lovely kitchen is full of visual interest. The warm tones of the brown suede and leather barstools with nailhead trim contrast the cool blue-gray of the kitchen island, topped with white marble. The mosaic backsplash, in gray tones, is topped by a copper range hood that is complemented by the three vintage-inspired hanging light fixtures with warmly colored glass shades. White and frosted glass cabintry, hardwood floors, and an arched doorway complete the space.
In this home, an arching brick doorway leads from the kitchen out to a covered patio, the ideal spot for entertaining guests before or after dinner. Beyond the stone columns, the lawn stretches out to views of farmland and mountains beyond.
Soft light shines from the windows in this Colonial-style home as the sun sets. Even at night, the landscape lighting and sconces cast a glow on the all-white brick exterior and brick driveway. A beautiful arched front doorway is flanked by large potted, tropical plants.
This cool, crisp and airy space serves as both relaxing master retreat and functional workspace for the homeowner. An arched open doorway connects the serene bedroom to the en-suite bath and adjoining workspace. Cool colors, ample lighting and sleek flooring bring continuity to the contemporary rooms.
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.
From the moment guests pass through the gated entryway and make their way up the gravel path to the main house at Peacock Pavilions, they are transported to a magical world of lifestyle blogger Maryam Montague’s making, and it all begins with the main room. Like every room at Peacock Pavilions, this expansive chamber is filled with wonders from all corners of the globe. The white walls are the perfect backdrop for Montague’s colorful collection which mixes modern furnishings with antique and modern pieces from Morocco, China and India. The arched doorway on the far left leads to the hotel’s own souk, a small but stunning shop that displays a selection of good curated by Montague to support her non-profit organization, Project Soar (http://www.projectsoarmorocco.org/).
This Mediterranean-style bathroom features a stone-surround soaking tub and walk-in shower. Arched windows and doorways, ochre walls and mosaic tile accents play up the Mediterranean drama in the master retreat.
Arched openings are replicated throughout this Austin home, which features Spanish-style architectural details. A beamed ceiling, rough stone wall and decorative niche add character to the dining room, while a rear doorway leads to a wine cellar.
This quaint brick home has plenty of English charm. The arches over the doorway are reminiscent of Romanesque/Norman architecture and the two large bay windows are a big selling point for this house as seen on HGTV’s House Hunters International.
Arched recessed walls mimic the doorway and window shapes to unify the space and add visual interest. Recessed walls also serves as frames for the tufted headboard, bedroom sitting area and standing mirror. A neutral color palette creates a soothing atmosphere.
An arched stone gate with a weathered doorway leads to the heavily landscaped courtyard of this Spanish-style home in Austin. A stone fountain provides a focal point and the serene sound of trickling water. Light stone finishes contrast with dark woods throughout the home.
