This sleek black bar makes for a chic spot to shake and stir the cocktails while guests keep you company seated on the contemporary barstools. Distressed, pillowed-edge American Walnut flooring is on display here and throughout the apartment.
Bold Green And Black Playroom With Contemporary Denim Sectional
Citron and black striped walls pack a punch in this stylish playroom. Lime green chairs and stools punctuate the black dot-patterned carpet, complementing the green striped accent wall. A sleek, contemporary sectional offers a new take on the tired denim couch.
Artistic Artwork and Textured Walls and Floor in Foyer
Upon entering the home, guests can see that the family loves modern art. The architecture of the home itself is an art form, with decorative arches that allow guests to see directly into the living room from the foyer. The floor and walls add texture to the space with their patterns and colors, while the family's sculptures are placed in sight for the family's and their guests' viewing pleasure.
A staircase boasting ebonized oak treads floats above twin steel channels in this contemporary home. At the lower portion of the staircase, a clear glass wall offers views of a beautiful garden. As you ascend the stairs, frosted glass takes over, offering shade and privacy.
Contemporary Living Room With Dramatic Spiral Staircase
This minimalistic living room features a grand black spiral staircase that provides a sharp contrast to the otherwise white and neutral tones used throughout the space. Two chairs and a plush brown area rug are positioned in front of a rustic stone fireplace, while limestone floors add a glossy, sleek touch.
Black Traditional Butler's Pantry With Glass Cabinets
Located conveniently next to the kitchen, this butler's pantry keeps wine glasses stowed away behind pretty glass cabinets. A miniature refrigerator keeps wine chilled and ready for serving. An arabesque tile backsplash adds interest to break up the black cabinetry.
If you really want a bar but don’t have space to spare, consider using existing architecture elements to corral your spirits and glassware. An example from designer Leanne Ford: “A lot of older houses have corner cabinets in the dining rooms,” she says. “If you have one, take advantage of it. This is a great place to stash your prettiest glassware and liquor bottles. Paint the cabinet high-gloss black to modernize the space and give it an extra shine.”
Contemporary Home Bar Enclosed by Glossy Cabinetry
Designer Angelica Henry created this stunning bar and cabinet unit for an entire wall of this home to make a bold, artistic statement. The glossy black and glass panel doors slide and close to conceal the bar when not in use. When the doors are open, a fully functional bar — complete with a sink, a wine fridge and an under-counter ice maker — is available for entertaining family and friends.
Contemporary Gray and White Bar with Black Seating Area
A metal sculpture is displayed on a white pedestal next to a contemporary gray and white bar. A sleek black table with matching chairs sits on top of a white animal hide rug creating a sophisticated spot to entertain or relax.
Sophisticated Lobby Highlighting Black Paneled Walls With Gold Trim, Corner Embellishments and Two Pronged Sconces
A panel design brings texture and sophisticated style to heighten the appearance of the black walls in this bakery lobby. Gold trim within the panels catches the light for an extra glow throughout the design, and corner embellishments add the perfect finishing detail. Double pronged sconces bounce warm light off the black paint.
Soft black cabinets contrast against gray countertops in this sophisticated kitchen bar area. Mirrored tiles add a glamorous touch as the backsplash, while a mini refrigerator and smart shelving provide storage for wine bottles and essential glassware.
Art Decor Macaron Bakery With Brass Chandelier, Crescent Bar and Jade Velvet Chairs
This lavish macaron bakery features a crescent shaped bar that adds counter space and supports a glass encased macron display. A ornamental brass chandelier commands the room in the dimensional white ceiling. Black walls create a bold contrast to the white ceiling and compliment the chandelier with thin gold trim framing the paneling.
The gold-trimmed mirror served as the inspiration for this entryway designed by Jona Collins. Two tones of black stripes offer more sophistication as a backdrop to the mirror than a single tone of black would. Using such a dark color with light trim grounds the space, completing the elegant look.
Enclosed stairs also serve as a rustic, cabin style playhouse with orange shutters and a laminate exterior made to look like reclaimed wood. Patterned wall-to-wall carpet unifies the space and adds a playful element that the kids won't outgrow.
Mini refrigerators are useful, but they aren't all that attractive. Personalize your dorm room refrigerator using strips of washi tape. We created an abstract stripe design with metallic gold tape. Chalkboard adhesive over the freezer allows you to further personalize the appliance. A light turquoise stacked shelf creates a cute and useful pantry for food and kitchen accessory storage.
