As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, homeowners Robert Marra and Nathan Baynard found their ideal house in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. They created a contemporary office in one of the guest bedrooms using a bright blue/green color for the walls, to set off the black furniture, and placing a full-length mirror on one wall to bring more light into the room.
An ornate black dresser with a changing table is positioned perpendicular to a matching black crib with curved back. White bedding, pillows, and ribbon adornments coordinate with the plush area rug for a more feminine touch to create an adorable space for a little girl.
Instead of placing a group of decorative balls in a bowl, a common move in decorating, save money by buying only two or three objects. Then place them on the same chest or table, but in different areas.
Mixing a modern rock influence with timeless style, this living room features a beautiful neural and black color scheme and an array of textures creating intrigue throughout the space. Black chairs surround a circular coffee table over a large, diamond-pattern area rug. An intricate, unique art piece is mounted above the decorative, traditional mantle displaying the juxtaposition of styles.
A textured beige exterior finish and slightly darker neutral trim create a sophisticated and timeless look for this home. A long brick patio features black wicker furniture forming an outdoor living room set up. A pond and mulched garden area give an enchanting quality to the backyard.
Walls encase this patio sitting room, but the sunlight streams in from above. Arched panels protruding from the wall give a unique, 3D finish behind a row of small succulents adding natural color to the space. The patio floor is striped powder blue and white under a collection of black patio furniture with white cushions. A single orange throw pillow adds a touch of color and compliments the hue of the retaining walls.
If you think you can't paint a bedroom black or mix black walls with brown furniture, think again. As seen on HGTV's Deserving Design, host Vern Yip's black bedroom makeover delighted the Halloween-loving homeowners. He brought some light into the space with oversized lamps, lots of candlelight and reflective metal art above the headboard.
