Dream Home Inspiration: Arch Doors and Windows

I don’t know exactly what it is about arch doors and windows that makes my heart melt. Maybe it’s because it has a European touch. I believe this trend started in Rome. Maybe because it’s what you picture in fairy tale homes. Maybe it’s because I think they’re inviting. It could have a lot to do with the fact that it’s not standard here in America and it makes me appreciate arches that much more.
