The Arc de Triomphe of Design Trends
: 9 Ways Arches are Taking Over Interior Design

I love the shape repetition with the mirror and fireplace from Bicker Design. It definitely brings your eye up to see the whole space and I really like how it plays with the curves of the sofa. #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #livingroom #archfireplace #archmirror

You’d have to be living under a rock not to have noticed today’s interiors trend. I’ve been seeing it everywhere – from mirrors and ceilings to entryways and fireplaces. The arch design trend is in full swing. And I have to say, while it’s been popping up for a while, I’m still just as obsessed. What about you?

I’ve rounded up nine drool-worthy examples of arches in interiors to show you how to stay ahead of the curve (wink) with arch inspo from decoration to DIY to full on renovation.

1. (above) I love the shape repetition with the mirror and fireplace from Bicker Design. It definitely brings your eye up to see the whole space and I really like how it plays with the curves of the sofa and coffee table. You can’t see the coffee table in this photo, but if you click through to the link, you’ll see.

This oversized, arched headboard from Three Birds Renovations is perfection. Maybe I’m crazy, but wouldn't this make an amazing upholstered headboard DIY?! I mean, I did just buy a jigsaw, so I'm kinda obligated to at least try it, right?! #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #bedroom #pink #headboard #statementheadboard

How beautiful is this arched Italian ceiling in the Masseria San Giovanni from archilovers?  This space is actually a hotel, so all I really need to know is...when is check-in??? #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #livingroom

I love how this bathroom from Owen Architecture brings a lot of attention to the arch way by using squared tiles and sharp edges everywhere else. #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #bathroom #tilebathroom #archdoorway

These arched windows and doors from Sans Arc Studio make this space feel extremely playful and elevated at the same time. I love the contrast of the dark window frame and mullions and the light wood door. #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #kitchen #archwindow #archdetail

Arched doorway, arched ceiling, arched island, oh my! This space from Hogg and Lamb really embraces the arched trend in several places...there's even an arch detail over at the dining room table.  #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #kitchen #whitekitchen #minimalkitchen #minimalinterior

This free-standing arch mirror from Douglas and Bec is so good. #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #livingroom #archmirror

8. Want to get on board with this trend ASAP? If you have the cash, adding a free-standing arch mirror like this one from Douglas and Bec is a great alternative to remodeling. It’s pricey but so beautiful AND costs less than a reno budget would be, right? Similar to what Douglas and Bec owner, Bec Dowie, did in her own space via Sight Unseen.

Look at this bathroom from Three Bird Renovations. The tile, the mirror, the light fixture? It’s all so good. #arch #designtrend #interiors #organicmodern #bathroom #archmirror #pinktile #pinkbathroom #modernbathroom

9. Last, but not least, look at this bathroom from Three Birds Renovation. I mean! The tile, the mirror, the light fixture? It’s all so good. See the full project here.

So now that you’ve seen some options, what do you think? Is the arch design trend obsession-worthy? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

This kind of kills me because I traditionally don’t love arches, but there is definitely a right way and wrong way to do them, and I love the ones you’ve shown here!

I agree there is a right and wrong way when it comes to arches. 🙂 But am glad to hear I’ve won you over with the inspiration photos. Happy Friday Paige!

I freaking love the arch trend. I used to live in pretty old houses when I was younger, so for me arches are such a classic that can be modernized well. And getting a jigsaw is the perfect excuse to make an arched headboard!! Plz show us how it turns out! I seriously really admire your woodworking skills. My dad had a bunch of fancy saws when I was a kid and I’ve always wanted to get into it myself.
