The Finishing Room
What do you need the treatments to do? Privacy, sun control, decorative ?
Many arches look best left alone. Often times, when treated...you don't need to address the arch. You can simply mount a straight pole above the window frame and dress it with side panels. I have often made arched roman shades mounted inside the arch. Arched treatments can be pricey. If you ignore the arch, you can save some money.

shutter are also a good solution. they can be arched to match the window so as not to loose the design, tilted to keep the sun out or closed for privacy.

Natalie Myers added this to Arches Frame Welcoming Spaces
I leave you with an exterior shot of a home that has used multiple arches of varying scales and spans in its design to great success and for great curb appeal. I would move in right now if I could.Next: Browse more photos of arches in design
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Try a Four-Leaf Design That Spans the Ages
Many traditionally inspired landscape elements, especially in a Mediterranean aesthetic, have a quatrefoil shape. It's quite common to see small water features, pools and fountains that have a quatrefoil as the basis for their design.

A barbed quatrefoil is one in which a square is laid over the four overlapping circles. The resulting triangular "barb" between each circular element gives a more controlling and geometrically fixed shape to the quatrefoil.

I may like this fountain but not with all the stones around but a simple blue tile like a swimming pool in Brasil com o espirro no meio como a fotografia da Celina.

It's quite common to see small water features, pools and fountains that have a quatrefoil as the basis for their design.
