Black and White Farmhouse With Contemporary Prints and Eye-Popping Art

This is a very modern fairytale cottage. The lush dark walls and striking, graphic wallpaper set the stage for playful pops of neon, exuberant art and gorgeous veined stone. Urban and Art Deco details tie the eclectic spaces together and add polish to every room.

Contemporary Living Room With Black Fireplace

For a dramatic statement in this living room, designers painted the chimney and surround crisp black, then added a bold painting. Graphic curtains serve as an additional layer of striking pattern.

Farmhouse Exterior in Snow

The charming farmhouse exterior of this home belies its edgy interior, full of bold color pairings and dramatic furnishings.

Gray Exterior With Dormer Windows

This home takes the charm of a fairy tale cottage...and super-sizes it. The mansion's appealing architecture includes dormer windows and stone chimneys.

Stairs With Molding

White paint helps the lovely molding in this stairwell stand out. For texture, the stairs get a heathered runner.

Gray Chef Kitchen With Black Island

This handsome kitchen looks fit for a king with its regal black-and-gold island, barstools and range hood. Pale gray cabinetry acts as a foil to those bolder elements.

Gray Sitting Area With Red Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa goes industrial in this sitting area. A concrete fireplace matches the urban edge of her graffiti makeover. On the floor, a small round rug is just the right size for the open plan space.

Kitchen With Kids' Art

Against a black backdrop, artwork by the youngest members of this household brings cheerful color to the kitchen.

Black and White Living Room With Gold Table

The built-in bookshelves in this living room take on bold character painted black and white—black for the interiors, white for the frame. Artwork, photos and vases pop against the dark background.

Black and White Contemporary Living Room With Striped Rug

Giving black interiors to this living room's built-in bookshelves is an exciting way to jazz up the look without an inch of color. The crisp black, white and brass palette is continued throughout the rest of the space.

Black and Gold Sitting Area With Cabinet

The furnishings in this sitting area are as dramatic and striking as any artwork: A black carved cabinet is topped by two golden sculptures. And black and gold pair up again in the dashing end table.

Gray Art Deco Dining Room With Wainscoting

Every detail adds to the dazzling style of this Art Deco dining room, from the sculptural dining chairs and candlesticks to graphic print curtains against crisp white wainscoting.

Art Deco Dining Room With Starburst Pendants

Art deco style makes this dining room glamorous indeed. Molding on the black ceilings starts out the striking look. Starburst pendants, a textured wallcovering and sculptural chairs continue the bold mix of shapes and materials.

Black Cabinet With Sculptures

This striking tableau skillfully weaves plant leaves and flowers into the sculptural display.

Eclectic Multicolored Living Room With Velvet Sofa

Hot pink accents wake up the dark blue of this living room's elegant velvet sofa. Other vibrant patterns are layered in (zebra print rug, graphic pillows, the cabinet's detailed carving) to continue the eclectic look.

Contemporary Living Room With Purple Pillows

Instead of white walls, this living room's white rug becomes the room's blank canvas. On top of it, jewel tones and a myriad of luxurious textures are highlighted to beautiful advantage.

Neutral Contemporary Dining Room With Black Ceiling

This dining room goes big and bold with its look, using layers of exciting textures and strong accents (like that black ceiling) to create a glamorous mood.

Gray Contemporary Living Room With Red Pillows

This living room keeps things cool with a gray palette, but lots of appealing textures and pops of rust red make it appealing to the senses.

Shelf and Brown Leather Chair

A bold color like red can be overwhelming in large doses, but in accents—as seen in this sitting area—it's a great way to add energy.

Contemporary Kid's Room With Orange Shade

This fun kid's room strides boldly into an imaginative mix of patterns. They're all in the same color palette—gray, white and orange—so the combinations feel fresh, not jarring.

Neutral Kid's Room With Gray Beanbag Chair

Two different wallpapers—both in neutral tones—combine to make a chic backdrop for toys and art in this kid's room.

Gray and Orange Contemporary Kid's Room

To maximize storage in this kid's room without taking up valuable floor space, designers created a built-in window seat and dresser-nightstand with drawers.

Gray Bathroom and White Countertop

Gray walls and a geometric floor continue this home's sophisticated, cool palette into the kid's bathroom. A personalized metal bin adds extra storage and plenty of personality.

Gray Contemporary Kid's Room With Camouflage Wallpaper

Gray camouflage wallpaper is the foundation for this kid room's cool, contemporary look. Add a zippy patterned shade, soft rug and striped bed linens and the kids may never want to leave.

Neutral Shabby Chic Bedroom With Bench

Blush pink and gray in lots of delicious textures make this bedroom inviting. The small-scale patterned wallpaper has a feathery look that pairs prettily with the soft rug and throw and the bed's ruched duvet.

Pink Cottage Bedroom With Floral Wallpaper

The sweetness of pink is tempered by metallic accents in this bedroom, as well as the chocolate brown headboard.

Metallic Home Office With Marbled Shades

The back wall of this silvery room is packed full of function. A long window seat invites dreamy brainstorming sessions. When the idea is fully formed, head over to the built-in desk to jot it down. Marbled shades are a beautiful way to bring movement into the room.

Gray Dresser and Pink Wallpaper

Give a special sparkle to a dresser or cabinet with fancy pulls. The ones on this gray dresser echo the floral wallpaper and the bench's arms.

Black and White Art Deco Powder Room With Striped Wallpaper

This powder room steps into old Hollywood with a black and white palette dressed up with gold accents. Vintage artwork and a geometric floor are the final razzle dazzle.
