Black and White Eclectic Dining Room With Graphic Wallpaper
For homeowners who love bold color and patterns, the designer of this striking living room pushed the design envelope. The result: a vibrant, imaginative space that's also functional and family-friendly with stain-resistant, durable fabrics.
Black and White Mantel and Accents Make Modern Living Room Pop
To make the white walls of this modern space pop, designers painted the mantel black and used black accents and furniture for contrast. This additional color warms up this area and draws the eye to the mantel, which is the focal point of this space.
This show stopping living room design creates the feeling of a larger space by using the stripes to draw the eye upward. Black and white walls add a sense of whimsy while creating a bold, daring statement. Beautiful, custom gray sofas draw frame the room and create a focal point of the fireplace that is defined by a black mantel with a white, marble slab inlay that adds softness to the room's design. Finally, a long, dramatic chandelier hangs eight feet from the floor to finish the space with a feeling of intimacy and warmth.
The dining room is brimming with drama thanks to lacquered walls and exposed beams. Powder blue Louis XVI chairs soften the strong personality of the jet black walls, while an art deco pendant and sideboard mirror help bounce light around the room.
Durable and comfortable leather flooring adds an unusual twist to an open, modern living space. The neutral colored walls of this space showcase the dark and dramatic palette of the flooring and furniture.
Transitional Dining Room With Black and White Wallpaper
For part of the final challenge on HGTV Design Star season seven, contestant Britany gave this once functionless dining room an eye-catching makeover. The wallpaper and wainscoting create a high-end look that nods to Britany's trademark graphic style.
This elegant living room uses its traditional architecture and white walls to add a touch of whimsy. A butter yellow sofa adds warmth and vibrancy. The artwork above pulls all the colors and design together.
Give your version of midcentury style a more personal look by letting your home’s geographic location influence the design. For this house in Austin, Texas, for example, designer Christen Ales, chose colors and motifs that nod to the southwestern site—and yet still have a midcentury look. “The décor mixes fun bohemian patterns and textures, like this wallpaper from Cavern Home, with modern and more traditional Mexican style furniture silhouettes for a clean, but eclectic look,” she says.
Chic Black and White Living Room with Modern Chair
Elegant detailing adds a subtle dose of texture and interest to this fabulous black and white living room. A modern white chair and "love" pillow adds a classic element, leaving your senses feeling happy.
A striking scene is set in this formal dining room with black dining chairs and molding making a crisp contrast with the polished floor and white walls. A golden starburst artwork dazzles on the back wall.
