Blonde wood accents add subtle contrast to this kitchen's white palette and visually define the hall space from the kitchen. A pass-through window and extended counter space provide an ideal environment for entertaining.
This sleek and simple contemporary dining room with blonde wood floors was designed by Stacey Cohen, a contestant on HGTV Design Star season 5. Stacey specializes in green residential and commercial design and describes her design style as "clean lines and modern principles."
The uniform and simple size and shape of the cabinets in this modern kitchen give a sense of order and organization -- and who doesn't want that in a kitchen? With the white backdrop, the custom kitchen island stands out as the star -- and don't let the illusion fool you: This island is inset with blonde wood. That's not the floor you see shining through. What a clever way to tie the room's elements together!
To use a dark color in a space and maintain a light, airy feel overall, focus the shade in one main area, like the floor, ceiling or an accent wall. This bathroom pairs navy floor tiles with white walls and countertops and a blonde wood vanity.
Blonde-colored wood cabinets and floors give this kitchen a monochromatic, unified look. Green stone countertops on the island and an olive tile backsplash inject a small does of color. Wood slat bar stools sit underneath a rolling island.
Slate-grey countertops and modern appliances are a striking counterpoint to the natural-wood style cabinets and blonde hardwood floors. An expandable dining table gives the home owners flexibility and saves space.
A rustic inspired faux-bronze range hood with distressed wood surround serves as the statement piece of this kitchen. Blonde hardwood floors, while a lighter color, feel just as warm and inviting as dark hardwood floors.
