Mosaic tiles create a focal wall around the soaker bathtub, which sits under a chic, contemporary chandelier. A large mirror above the double vanity visually enlarges the space and bounces light around the room. Centered between the vanities is a small dressing area complete with a comfortable stool.
A small stool tucks under the polished white vanity for standing or sitting access to the counter space and mirror. A fun, contemporary art piece adds color to the white design. A glass wall creates a shower space above the bathtub.
In this transitional design, Hilary, from HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, expertly blends elements of a traditional room, such as this luxurious four poster bed and dark wood foot stool with leather cushion, with a more contemporary color palette to make this space both elegant and inviting.
The cozy corner of the laundry room of the HGTV Smart Home 2013, in bright green and white, features three black and white prints next to the interior door, a contemporary window treatment, and green upholstered bench. A touch of blue in the window treatment and the stool complement the color scheme.
Not only does the contemporary black cabinetry lend authority to this kitchen, but the stainless accents Angelica Henry used throughout also add strength to the design. Moreover, the dose of metal here--in the soffit, cabinet pulls, knickknacks, bar stools and desk chair--all harmonize with the stainless steel double refrigerator for a unified look.
A small-scale animal print on the stools and neutral stripe on the armchair cushions balance the bold, graphical prints of the throw pillows and curtains in this colorful, contemporary living room. The color palette of deep blues, lime green and chocolate brown offers a modern twist to the traditional architectural features of the space.
This open-concept kitchen offers the best of both worlds, providing an elegant ambiance while maintaining a creative and fun design. The bar stools, black-and-white drum shade pendant lighting and clear table add whimsy and the dark, contemporary style cabinets and soft recessed lighting establish elegance combining the two worlds into a perfect space for gathering.
This high-ceilinged kitchen feels warm and cozy, thanks to the warm color palette and multi-bulb chandeliers. The stone walls are unique and rustic, while the cabinets and appliances are contemporary and state-of-the-art. A kitchen island and kitchen table -- plus kitchen stools from Orient Express -- provide ample seating for an extended family.
The soaking tub is the highlight of this black and white bathroom. With its updated brass faucet, the tub feels both traditional in appeal and unique and modern in comparison with the recent chrome and silver trend. A black ladder shelf holds towels, and a nearby black stool holds soap and decorative items. Black and white floor tile rounds out the classic but contemporary feel of the space.
This dining room is ready for festive fetes. Kay Douglass Interiors used bright and bold Hermes pieces, including a mobile and its signature orange for the custom velvet banquettes in the contemporary space. The chic dining chairs are in gray velvet and other seating swivels. The stool has a faceted cube shape. The paintings were found at a French market. The room was in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays.
Consider using see-through furniture in tight spaces. This contemporary acrylic table makes a great coffee station and uses the available space well, freeing the kitchen counter of a coffee maker, toaster and fruit bowl. The clear table doesn’t add visual clutter, while the stools add a place for guests or kids to perch. This room was designed by Clay Snider Interiors for Dwell with Dignity, which creates inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
