The texturally painted suspended ceiling highlights the clawfoot tub in this master bathroom as the focal point. The floor to ceiling windows bring the outdoors in. Tiled walls highlight the curved architecture and bring charm into this elegant space.
Built on a design of Frank Lloyd Wright's that never came to fruition, this ultimate contemporary dream home brings '40s classic into the modern day with curved walls and rooms, 360 degree windows and of course a great view.
This modern great room features a wall of windows extending from the bamboo floor all the way to the ceiling for a view of La Jolla, California. A wood stove offers heat during cooler weather, and curved red couches provide comfortable seating.
An oval shaped custom steel tub is nestled in front of a curved, stacked stone wall and crowned by a multi-globe chandelier. The cantilevered silestone counter meets the lower cabinet beneath window seamlessly.
With all the windows, the curved exterior wall was the only spot to mount the TV. In order to blend it with the rest of the room redesign, Patrice extended the draperies to soften the area and obscure the mounting equipment and “ground” the TV.
A series of curved windows slope with the steps of this curvaceous staircase, one of myriad design details that set this Greenwich, Connecticut, home apart. White walls create a gallery-like effect throughout the space, while custom iron stair rails and dramatic lighting give it contemporary flair.
Though defined by wood beams and rough stone walls, this entryway looks sleek and modern thanks to broad windows and a door with glass panels. Notice, too, how the curved ceiling flows from the exterior to the interior and so literally brings the outdoors inside.
Sliding doors can work in a wide range of architectural styles and configurations, including a curved opening like the one shown here. “Sliding glass walls offer more flexibility in configuration than folding glass walls. Sliding glass panels stack or disappear into a pocket when open, opening up living spaces to the outdoors,” says Ximena Rojas, Marketing Director for Panda Windows & Doors.
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.
Breaking up the beige travertine tile, an upholstered oval ottoman in the middle of this southwest-style bathroom mimics the curves of the walls and ceiling. A white clawfoot tub is positioned at the center of a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows for a scenic, relaxing retreat.
