Ok, now that you are back, here are the pics! You may go here to get original sources for all of these pics! (Some of the links lead to nowhere which is why I haven't linked to each site under the pics...I don't know where they came from! Sorry!)
Your eye is drawn to the beams and the walls in this pic because the decorating is very minimal.
Hellooooo gorgeous! This one speaks for itself! That island! The ceiling! The archways! I could go on and on!
Again, very minimal decorating since the tub and the wall is in the spotlight! Oh, that tub!
Here the ceiling is allowed to be the focal point and those beautiful HUGE chandeliers!
Lots of great molding here and did you check out that ceiling? LOVE!
When I have my own house one day, I want lots of architectural detailing! It makes such a statement and makes decorating easy and uncluttered. I think if you had a lot of accessories or too many colors and textures in any of these rooms, it would make them feel very heavy. I like light, open, airy rooms!
Have a great weekend! God bless!
