Inspired by the look of New York City buildings, designer Tomas Frenes used black subway tile with white grout, LED lighting that mimics the style of neon signs and a custom smoked glass window to create an urban style in this master bathroom.
Decorative plates are mounted together to create an accent section in the black subway tile wall of this dining room. The french country look of the plate designs contrasts the sleek contemporary look of the black. Simple wood tables with matching chairs make up the dining section. The tables are topped with white napkins and small details to create place settings.
Black subway tile on the bar wall correlates with the white subway tile walls in this public bar. Tall barstools with neutral leather set cushions reach up to the wood countertop adding a beautiful texture agains the subway tile. A large skylight lets natural light fall into the room while a trio of pendant lights bring a warm glow above the bar.
Black subway tile frames a plate wall display to create an artistic accent wall. A reflective finish on the side wall grabs the light and creates a contemporary feel in the room. Simple wood tables with matching chairs and understated place settings fill the dining floor. A built in bookshelf gives a homey quality to the public space.
A reclaimed factory window serves as the shower door in this country cottage. The striking black and white color palate keeps the bathroom feeling modern and fresh. A small window in the shower lets in just enough natural light.
White subway tile with gray grout lines the walls of this chef's kitchen. Gray and white patterned floor tiles add interest while still keeping with the color palette. Gold midcentury modern chandeliers inject a dose of glamour into the space.
Contrast is key in this spacious bathroom. Floor-to-ceiling white tile walls stand out against the black ceiling, floor and doors. A glass-enclosed shower displays the white tile shower surround, creating a seamless and more spacious appearance.
