I had first been drawn to our home because of the architectural detail of the arches, but then a little concerned as my house would not reflect a Spanish/Mediterranean feel. As much as I like to embrace mixing different time periods and styles as far as design, I didn't know if this would be too of the mark. When looking for inspiration I decided that arches could be decidedly Moroccan, as Moorish architecture reflects a Spanish influence. I always gravitate to a Moroccan flair whether it be a rug or pillows, which is certainly reflective of a global aesthetic that is influenced by my travels:
I remembered this Elle Decor feature, and noticed the arches in this Moroccan abode.
Then, there was this Elle Decor feature of a Marrakech home:

And Dar Les Cigognes, a luxury hotel situated in Marrakech boasts intricately carved arches and archways throughout the property:
Arches don't even have to reflect a Spanish/Mediterranean style at all I discovered. Moving in a completely different direction there are carrera marble arches in a plush bathroom suite:
