This week's obsession: unusually shaped doors, windows, and other householdery. Judge these nine pics and see if you'd go round.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of Spaces posts.
Our homes are made up of lots of spaces — yards, gardens, pastures, bedrooms, redecorated kitchens, upgraded baths, ogle-worthy renos and real home tours all live here to represent the spaces of Offbeat Home.
