A curved bank of windows makes this workspace even more elegant. Textured wallpaper texture and long curtains add to the plush, comfortable ambiance. A built-in shelf sand desk makes efficient use of the space.
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.
These curved glass walls have a magic trick in store: They're motorized and, when open, stack behind the solid wall to open up the living room completely to the outdoors. When the late afternoon sun is at its hottest, custom sheer panels can be lowered to reduce glare.
This modern home has stunning curb appeal! Even from the outside, lofty, bright spaces on the inside are apparent. The unique shape of the left wall is most noticeable: The barrel-shaped structure creates a modern yet cozy feel.
Fun fact: The reason Colonial architecture tends to feature windows with many small “lights” (individual panes) is that the British imposed high import taxes on large pieces of glass sent into the Colonies.
