In addition to three floors, the villa includes a spacious, 273-square-meter basement with broad archways. Thanks to its size, the basement could be used for extra storage or could even be converted into a wine cellar.
Swirled columns and understated archways subtly divide the foyer, living room and dining room in this elegant home. A neutral color palette carries throughout the spaces, tying them together and uniting the first floor.
In this Cape Cod-style home, a wraparound porch provides a sweeping view of Little Harbor. The large archways both create a breezy transition from one side to the next and add an elegant touch to the home's exterior.
A turret-like open cabana provides a warm, dry seating area with a view of the luxurious pool and hot tub at this Colleyville, Texas, retreat. The home's outdoor entertainment spaces include two fireplaces, along with lush landscaping and multiple conversation areas.
Notice how the master bathroom echoes certain elements from the bedroom: the broad archways, the Moroccan-style border around the doors, the unexpected patterns. In turn, these separate spaces look cohesive.
Stone archways frame views of the pool and cabana beyond, as well as invite cool breezes to filter inside this loggia. Meanwhile, a white table and chairs both visually lighten the room and allow for entertaining guests.
Designer Don Sharp creates an inviting foyer that evokes a dramatic feel as guests enter into the home. It was designed to pull the eye through the home for a glimpse of the pool and outdoor living spaces.
