For many Utah’s design devotees, there’s nothing quite as exciting and inspiring as checking out showhouses where talented builders, architects and designers flex their creative muscles. This year’s 2022 St. George Area Parade of Homes provided loads of ideas to savor and steal. And among the top trends, arches led the way. With swoon-worthy curves that took the edge off the interiors’ hard angles and lines, a parade of arches made an appearance on windows, hallways and doors as well as furniture, fixtures, tile and more. Here are a handful of the arched statements that caught our attention.
