A creamy oversized chaise paired with rust-colored throw pillows provides the ultimate in comfort at the home theater of HGTV Dream Home 2010. Artwork is limited to black-and-white photography of the local landscape. Pictures, taken by carpenter David Brown, were printed and framed locally – a smart-chic way to dress the warm cork walls.
Beautiful black-and-white horse photography in simple black, matted frames makes up a sophisticated, symmetrical gallery wall. Thinly striped black wallpaper gives this bedroom dramatic, opulent flair. An antique hand-carved chair serves more as a piece of art on display than a place to sit.
In this New York apartment, designer Nick Olsen uses long alternating black and gray stripes on the wall to accentuate the length of this contemporary galley kitchen. An impressive display of black-and-white photography in plain frames and white mattes plays off of the achromatic theme as do the contrasting gray and black cabinet fronts.
