Discover how arch details can elevate your home with a few stylish tips.
Introducing arch details adds an organic feel to your décor as it breaks up the straight architectural lines at home. Start by jazzing up a neutral space with a painted arch. This will create a focal point and make the room feel more spacious.
A good tip is to map out your design before you start painting, like where the semi-circle should be and the length of the arch. Choosing the right colour is also key to elevating the space. Opt for a bold contrast colour such as yellow to perk up the rest of the interior. Complement the painted arch with other curved details such as a round dining set and statement lighting.
Aside from creating focal points, arches can help zone an open plan space. For example, create a work-from-home area with a painted arch in your living room or bedroom to help separate work and relaxation. Choose a spot away from your bed or sofa to prevent distractions and help you get in the headspace to focus. For your painted arch, use a colour like navy blue as it isn’t too overpowering and adds a calming touch.
Add a vibrant touch by colour blocking a painted yellow arch with pastel walls in the bedroom. Position your bed right under the arch to create a painted headboard effect. Layer the bed with pastel accessories for a light, playful look. Round off the look with colourful flowers and greenery for a refreshing feel.
