Many dynamic spaces boast strong angles, hard edges and straight lines. While striking, they’re rarely soothing. And in today’s world, we all need a bit of soothing. Enter curves. Rounded forms, circular shapes and curled motifs are among savvy designers’ most valued tools when infusing comfort, flow and ease into boldly angular space, indoors or out.

Take the following desert homes in St. George, where round interior details and curled furnishings set the tone for easy living.

A large, back-lit round mirror is partially eclipsed above a squared-off vanity. Instead of centering the mirror above the sink, designers at RL Wyman Design + Create creatively tucked it into the corner. The result is a visually-stunning yet simple vanity.

A large ring embellishes an entry’s custom glass door while a contemporary, halo-like light hangs above. The round detail is in stark contrast with the angular lines of the nearby glass office. A round light fixture hangs above the entry, furthering the homeowners love of round interior details.

Metal arcs shape a woven-backed bed in a bedroom with a round-topped doorway. The pair of arches add character and interest to the modern room, and nod to the iconic red rock arches of St. George.
