Curved niches define the fireplace and media area of this contemporary living room to cut against the symmetrical lines of the window treatments and furnishings. Cream-colored cornice moldings and built-in cabinetry add architectural detail and contrast with the deep gold walls.

The home is filled with arches, which echo with the curves of many of the furniture pieces. In the library, an upholstered niche creates an inviting place where the room’s many books can be enjoyed. On the base of the niche, nailhead trim creates upscale detail. Sconces illuminate the small space.
By tucking the curved freestanding tub into a corner by the window, designer Joan Suzio was able to capture space for the walk-in shower. A niche recessed in the wall is a tidy spot to place shampoos and soaps to keep them off the floor or bench. Although a curbless shower with zero threshold was desired, the curb helps keep water off the bathroom floor.
