I love a wonderful arch in a home.
My best of friend AM says she doesn’t like arches in general. She likes square edges and likes to arrange her furniture in a grid pattern…she thinks arches look out of place with modern furniture and create imbalance in a room. I agree with EVERYTHING best of friend AM says typically…but not this time! I love a good arch.
I think strategically placed architectural arches soften a room and make it feel personal. I also think that an arches successfully soften the hard some times cold edges in modern decor. I love arched doors, windows and ceilings in living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, foyers and even in outdoor structures.
AM knows I love her…and I told her I would reveal to the world that she hates arches…she was fine with it…she just worried she will get unkind notes from readers who agree with me. Please readers…if you agree with me on the wonder of arches, be kind to best of friend AM…! Here are some wonderful arches in homes around the world!
