A wide arched doorway leads from the kitchen into this gracious living room that includes a fireplace and French door-access to the adjacent patio and pool. The color palette is simple, with pops of red that pick up the red accents in the kitchen.
Architect Julia Morgan, whose original design is seen in the curved detail of the front entry and doors in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015, often placed an emphasis on an interplay between exterior and interior spaces. The French doors seen here open wide to create a continuous gathering area between the front garden and entry.
A middle column adds beautiful height and shape placed between two lower sections of this home design. Roof shingles and planted shrubs add texture against the smooth exterior walls. The slight arch at the top of the front door compliments the arched shape of the french doors on either side.
A gorgeous, decorative white mantel and hearth draws the eye in this formal living room. A pair of patterned armchairs face the sofa surrounding the glass coffee table. Arched french doors bring natural brightness to the room.
The spacious, open design of this room makes for a grand look to the dining room. A rich wood dining table is surrounded by matching dining chairs below the wrought iron chandelier with small lamp shaded bulbs. Arched wood french doors let natural light into the room illuminating the built in neutral brick oven.
A long wood dining table compliments the shape of the room. Wood chairs with green leather seat upholstery surround the table below a decorative lamp shade chandelier. A built in glass door china cabinet echoes the arched shape of the french doors.
Arched French doors open up to the outdoors from this luxurious, traditional kitchen. Fresh air and natural light filter through the space and highlight the gorgeous gray cabinets and crystal chandelier.
Arched glass pocket doors open off the main hall into this warmly lit dining room. The walls were given a dull glaze while the ceiling is highlighted with a pale powder gloss. A collection of antique creamware plates carry out the French country theme.
Arched French doors and windows bring in tons of natural light, as well as provides beautiful views of the California coast. Traditional furniture in floral upholstery pairs with a classic area rug and hardwood floors to create a comfortable living space.
Arched french doors and column framed openings line this home creating an attractive exterior surrounding to the patio. Giant neutral marble tile forms the patio flooring. A raised border, one step higher than the patio, lines the in-ground swimming pool.
