Chic Remodeled Cottage

Wood paneling, a closed-off kitchen and mismatched furniture made this cottage look more shabby than chic. So, designer Connie Vernich opened the floor plan, introduced crisp white shiplap and then pulled in contemporary furniture and black-and-white patterned accents. The result is a space that feels fresh and fabulous.

Shiplap Walls in Colorful Living Room

White shiplap walls may be identified with farmhouse design, but this living room defies that notion. Green and black punches of color take this space to whole new level of classic and sophisticated.

BEFORE: Sunroom

Black and White Stripes are Catchy and Fun

Black and white stripe patterns in the rug, draperies and artwork are very eye-catching in this white, shiplapped living room. A bright green upholstered bench and matching pillows accent the greenery in the room and add yet another punch of color.

Living Room Features Black Patio Doors

Black patio doors pull the eye toward the brighter green bench, plants and pillows. The architecture of the door almost fades away, drawing attention to the outdoors. Black stripes from the rug and artwork and the simple metal light fixture add to the effect.

Living Room With Black and White Stripe Rug and Curtains

The black and white stripe pattern in the rug and curtains is bold and striking. The bright green accessories and greenery appear even more vivid against the black stripes and bright white shiplap walls.

Plush Neutral Sofa with Green and Black Accessories

This living room features white shiplap walls, a soft beige sofa and lots of green accents and details. The classic style of the furniture and accessories keep the shiplap from making the space overly rustic.

BEFORE: Kitchen

Buffalo Check and Stripes in Open Plan Kitchen and Living Space

A black and white color palette with green accents is used throughout the kitchen and living space. Buffalo check shades and striped curtains and rugs really add a cohesive feel.

BEFORE: Kitchen

Black and White Kitchen with Brass Pendant Lights

Brass accents in this black and kitchen add warmth to an otherwise stark color palette.

Black and White Kitchen with Island and Open Shelving

The kitchen features a large kitchen island and open shelving. Windows let in plenty of light, which keeps the black from being too dark in the space. Bright white shiplap walls also serve to this purpose.

Laundry Room with Farmhouse Sink

This laundry features white subway tile, grouted in black, which matches the window trim as well as the sink cabinet. Rustic wood shelves sit above a white farmhouse sink and between two hanging lantern lights.

Living Room with Hues of Blue

This chic living room features jewel tone blues, but an orange chair and gold accents add a brilliant pop of color.

Living Room of Blues, Orange and Gold

A gold bookcase lines the wall of this blue living room. An armchair adds a touch of orange and the fireplace is a bright white focal point.

Gold Bookcase and Blue Sofa with Art

The gold bookcase, made of metal and gold in a full wall design, pops against dark blue walls and the blue sofa. Subtle shade of the blue and gold in the artwork tie the look together beautifully.

BEFORE: Bedroom

Neutral, Calming Attic Master Suite

Swathed in neutral colors, this master bedroom is serene and tranquil. Beige and white brushed linens are light and airy and give the room a very casual feel.

Bedroom Sitting Area with Ottoman and Mirror

A soft, cozy beige sofa and large plush ottoman is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. White tables and lamps are uncomplicated in front of large windows that fill the room with natural light. These elements together with the neutral white and beige color palette contribute to the overall comfortable and calm feel of the bedroom.

Comfy Bed and Nightstand

Brushed linens in neutral stripes are casual and relaxing. A small pop of blue in the pillow packs a punch in this beige palette. Artwork and a small decorative mirror over the nightstand add just the right touch.

Black Shiplap Bathroom with Black and White Patterned Wallpaper

Black shiplap walls really accentuate the bright white vanity and sink in this bathroom. Black wallpaper with white circular patterns adds a distinction from the straight lines of the shiplap.

BEFORE: Backyard

Backyard Dining Table with Pastel Florals

A large farmhouse table makes the backyard a perfect place for entertaining. The tablescape includes pink and lavender floral arrangements and plenty of greenery.

Backyard Tablescape with Flowers and Greenery
