Amazing Arches

So, amidst our house hunting, I’m slowly realizing how there are just some things that are a must for a house for me. Little architectural details which really are not so *little.* So, maybe crown moldings can be installed, trims can be added to doorways & windows, but to have arched hallways is another thing…they should be in the structure of the house already. I guess that’s also why I adore old homes more as some have an abundance of these arches. Here are some of my inspiration:

The arched hallway leads to double daybeds | lounge or reading areas.

Columns + Arches = a pairing made in architectural heaven!

Even in distress and decay, the arched doorway exudes beauty.

Stone floor & arches jive so seamlessly.
What’s better than just an arched doorway? Arched doorways plus symmetrical bookcases on either side.
 So, when it comes to hallways & doorways, are you an arch lover or you go for straight ones?

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.

  1. It’s all in the detail! The second image is amazing and so fun to follow up with a distressed look. It’s interesting how that changes the feel.

    Beautiful photographs!
