I like the rounded crosses used in Gothic architecture. I also like the multiple columns on each side used to frame an entranceway. I'm not sure what I prefer (a perfectly rounded doorway or one that comes to a point like this one).

Medieval village Dordogne, France. Stone archways hang over the cobblestone road into many towns in southwest France.
Southern-style brick arches frame the entry to the family room from the entry. Exposed wooden beams are another distinct Southern detail and are used throughout the home.
