A swirled wallpaper featuring neutral, black and blue hues brings a lively, flowing backdrop to this room. Tall gold table lamps with white shades flank a mounted mirror above the stylish art deco buffet. The black buffet doors are bordered in gold and capped with a gold top. Gold handles and a monogrammed initial complete the piece.
This small bathroom maximizes available space through a compact shower with glass door and gray subway tile wall. Nearby, a black cottage-style closet door and white toilet and vanity help keep the room visually balanced.
Black patio doors pull the eye toward the brighter green bench, plants and pillows. The architecture of the door almost fades away, drawing attention to the outdoors. Black stripes from the rug and artwork and the simple metal light fixture add to the effect.
In a huge contrast to its original imposing feel, the entryway is now sunny and welcoming with charming built-in window seats flanking the front door. The door itself is painted black, a handsome pairing with all the white.
Designer Genevieve Gorder kept the original antique bathroom door for her main floor bathroom on HGTV's "Genevieve's Renovation." Fitting with the bathroom door, white wainscoting and patterned wallpaper in the hallway give added character to the space.
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.
