Contemporary Bedroom With Black Accent Wall and White Linens
This bold bedroom embodies style and grace. The black-and-white contrast is timeless, and the design reminiscent of Hollywood glamor. The white tufted headboard provides a comfortable backdrop for reading in bed, and the modern globe fixture provides light without taking up precious space on the side table. Multi-patterned pillows, which can be changed out seasonally, create a punch of funk in the otherwise-neutral room.
“Using black for interiors can be scary as it’s usually associated with being dark or depressing,” says designer Jodie Rosen. Her advice: “Using hits of black as an accent is a great way to elevate a space and emphasize elements of the design. In this case, we used black on the trim around the range to make the area a focal point and then repeated the black in the oversized fixtures, stools, and the metal detailing on the island.”
Designer Vern Yip squeezes a lot of luxury into tight quarters in this Manhattan high-rise. To maximize the natural light streaming in from one lone window, Vern covered both the floor and main wall in Ann Sacks glass tile for its light-reflecting qualities. Because space is at a premium, the vanity features a slim, elliptical profile with 2 pivoting doors that swing out to provide plenty of storage for necessary toiletries.

This timeless bathroom features a handsome, masculine contemporary design with striking, geometric black and silver vanity with a mirrored top and contrasting white vessel sink. Wallpaper sparkles in a copper tone while reflecting light from the sconces on either side of the large, black-framed mirror. A glass door keeps the space open and feeling sleek.
“Black and white is a classic combination that I will always love,” says designer Brooke Wagner. “Using greenery in a high-contrast black and white room is a great way to soften it up a little, while still keeping the palette neutral.”
Hexagon gray tile is used to create a chic, contemporary glass shower. Black-and-white graphic tile is used for a stylish floor, while a straight-lined black vanity is paired with a chunky gray countertop. Starburst decorations add a touch of whimsy to the space.
