Black and White Contemporary Living Room With Gray Sofa

To balance out the boldness of this living room's black-and-white rug, designers chose a light gray sofa and kept the walls simple white.

Black and White Chef Kitchen With Gold Chandeliers

This amazing kitchen is all snap and style. The clean white cabinets and walls get a tailored finish with the glossy black island and refrigerator. And golden, slim-lined chandeliers are an elegant choice for lighting.

White Chef Kitchen With Pot Drawer

This large kitchen planned in smart storage, along with its lovely aesthetic. Pots and pans are easily stashed in a deep drawer that's conveniently across from the stove.

Gray and White Chef Kitchen With Coffee Maker

Coffee-making essentials are conveniently tucked away behind a lifting door in this sophisticated kitchen. Dark gray countertops look smashing against the white backsplash's subtle texture.

Dining Area With Red Chairs

The designer discovered this large shelving unit while shopping for architectural salvage pieces. It's big enough to be part china cabinet, part bar and has lots of hidden storage as well. Painting it black helps the shelf integrate with the broom closet and pantry next door.

Black Broom Closet and Red Chair

Brooms, mops and other cleaning supplies are tucked neatly out of sight—and yet within easy reach—in this big salvaged shelf.

Green Powder Room With White Flowers

This powder room makes it so easy to be green! The walls are covered in a lacquered green paint. The sink is salvaged, then updated with elegant brass fixtures.

Home Office With Wall Clock

An antique garden table stands in handsomely as a desk in this top-floor home office.

Sitting Area With Cowhide Rug

Light filled and lovely, this sitting area is a wonderful combination of different styles. The heavier, rustic look of the leather ottoman and cow hide rug are lightened by the armchairs' graceful lines and slim plaid. On the bay windows, the blinds cut a striking black-and-white contrast.

Traditional Bedroom With Plates

For decor in the main bedroom, the designer hung the family's china on the wall. The furniture is all antique.

Spa Bathroom With Black and White Floor

Hexagons for the win! This gorgeous bathroom has fun with hexagonal tiles in a range of sizes and shades.

Gray Walk In Shower and Robe

Gray upon gray is such a graceful look in this walk-in shower. Tiles with different patterns elegantly mix up the monotone palette.

Bathroom With Black and White Floor

The white-plus-dark color combo displayed in this bathroom's cabinets and countertop is stylishly repeated in the geometric tile floor.

Guest Room With Diamond Window

This third-floor guest room tucks twin beds under the sloped ceiling. The star of the room is actually a diamond...the diamond-shaped window, a dazzling focal point.

Gray Bathroom With Silver Table

This Moroccan-style bathroom uses paint to create a unique border around the mirror. It's a budget-friendly move that easily and instantly makes a room more fun.

Gray Laundry Room With Orange Soap

Just because it's a laundry room doesn't mean it has to be boring! Black and white tiles and soft gray cabinets style up this functional space.
