To give the living room space a more modern ranch feel, black, iron grid windows were added throughout the room. Not only did these windows give the space a more modern feel, they also added great contrast to the otherwise neutral living room.
The crux of this dramatic penthouse design is set on contrast, as a black and white color palette anchors the space. To help connect the lounge space to the rest of the home's elegant design, designers replaced the apartment's standard doors with custom, heavy doors that were painted black. They also added black casings around each of the doors to create a uniform look throughout the enfilade.
A black-tiled shower provides a subtle contrast in this otherwise neutral, contemporary bathroom. The shape of the modern vanity and sink is echoed throughout the space in the mirror, shower bench, window and even in the luxe light fixture.
A French blue vanity is topped with leather style granite for a sharp contrast. Faucets and fixtures in black add a masculine accent while the matte black arm sconces echo the architectural design found throughout the space.
For the guest bathroom, designers wanted a clean, bright space with some drama, so they started with white, shiplap walls, a durable, white marble countertop and white subway tile in the bathroom. Then, they added black floor tile and black faucets and accessories to create contrast and really make the space pop.
Designers took a more modern approach to shiplap and brick in this living room by using a clean style shiplap and painted, white brick. To finish the design, gray furniture and black accents were added to the white space to make the room both bright and inviting.
This unexpected kitchen design has an eclectic look with its combination of white and dark wood cabinetry. The white, glass-front upper cabinets brighten the room, while the dark wood of the of lower cabinets coordinates with the black countertop and light wood flooring — adding a sleek look.
