Navy Blue and White Kitchen Featuring Large Cabinets and Kitchen Island with Stools

A navy-and-white color scheme gives this kitchen a touch of class. Spacious white cabinets provide ample space for cookware and gadgets. The kitchen island is surrounded with simple white stools for eating in.  

Kitchen with Blue Cabinets and Multiple Ovens

Bright blue cabinets bring a nontraditional yet fabulous flair to this kitchen. The space stays light and bright because of the white counters, cabinets and backsplash. A gas stove plus three ovens are a cook's dream.

Kitchen and Living Room with White Walls and Light Wood Floors

Bright, fresh colors in the kitchen and living room create a comfortable atmosphere that often leads to comments such as, "this house feels so happy!" The kitchen opens into a comfortable living room that's great for entertaining. A coffee table holds plants and stacks of books while cozy sofas and chairs invite visitors to settle in for a read. The kitchen island is surrounded by functional white stools, and art in the nearby dining room sets a whimsical but classy tone.

Dining Space With Large Artwork

A closer look at this in-kitchen dining space gives a better view of the artwork as well as the creative brass-toned light fixture above the table.

Bright Living Space With Tufted Sofas, Jute Rug and Colorful Pillows

All-white walls and neutral tufted sofas keep this space looking clean and new. Fun, funky pillows can be changed out frequently or seasonally to reflect the time of year, the holiday or just your mood! Beautiful plants and flowers enhance the neutral space, and the jute rug is easy to maintain.  

Black, White and Neutral Bedroom

This clean, comfortable bedroom features a symmetrical look, with matching end tables and globe lamps situated on either side of the room. Funky pillows and a faux fur throw add a modern element to the space, and the black accent wall makes the white elements in the room stand out.

Contemporary Bedroom With Black Accent Wall and White Linens

This stylish, bold bedroom incorporates a contrasting black-and-white color scheme, and the design is reminiscent of Hollywood glamor. The white tufted headboard provides a comfortable backdrop for reading in bed, and the modern globe fixture provides light without taking up precious space on the side table. Multi-patterned pillows, which can be changed out seasonally, add some pizzazz to the otherwise-neutral room.  

Master Bedroom Sitting Area With Large Black-and-White Photo

A sitting area in a master bedroom is a special place, and this one is perfect for reading or just relaxing. Neutral tones keep it cozy and inviting, and a lamp and end table ensure it's functional, too. A nearby bench with flokati throw feels welcoming, and a striking black-and-white photo adds an interesting visual accent to the space.

Bright Bath with Dark Wood and White Counters

This bathroom space uses a classic black-and-white design for a clean look that always feels sharp and connected. The brass sconce and fixtures are a current-day update to the chrome and silver that have dominated the market in past years. Drawers under the double vanity hold essential bathroom items, and an angular brass tray between the sinks displays flowers in simple crystal vases.  

Black and White Bathroom With Chic Soaking Tub

The soaking tub is the highlight of this black and white bathroom. With its updated brass faucet, the tub offers traditional appeal with modern charm, especially in comparison with the recent chrome and silver trend. A black ladder shelf holds towels, and a nearby black wooden stool is handy for placing soap or decorative items. Black-and-white floor tiles add a touch of art deco to the space.

Black-and-White Master Bathroom with Double Vanity and Soaking Tub

This large, black-and-white master bath is great for a couple who love a lot of space. A soaking tub sits across from a double vanity with plenty of counter, cabinet and drawer space. Black-and-white floor tiles pair nicely with the white subway tiles on the wall and add a touch of art deco appeal to the space. The bathroom opens up to the master bedroom, which has a coordinating color scheme, adding the sense of an even roomier area.

Kid's Contemporary Room With Twin Beds and Striking Art

Behind the twin beds of this kid's room, an accent wall with bold stripes creates a dramatic visual impact. Fun, playful art keeps the room feeling youthful, while patterned linens echo the colors of the wall to tie the space together. A painted pink-and-white dresser is positioned between the beds to hold daily essentials, and a gold-colored pendant light provides an additional bright element.

White Bathroom With Green Vanity

Two mirrors and a double vanity make it easy for a pair of people to prepare for their day. Farmhouse-style fixtures light up the space, while a blue-and-white throw rug provides a bright contrast to the bold green cabinets and accents.  

Living Room with Giant White Letters on Black Wall

This room's black accent wall sends a loving message of hugs and kisses with its giant white "XOXO" letters. Added punch comes from colorful pillows, an impactful black-and-white rug and whimsical window treatments.

Powder Room With Black Tile Wall and Round Mirror

This powder room features a black tile wall with a round, decorative mirror serving as the main focal point. Farmhouse-style sconces provide ample light, and a basin-style sink in a floating counter adds classy simplicity.
