Matte black walls and a marble backsplash make a chic combination in this open-concept kitchen. In addition to custom cabinets and a large island, the space comes with a cozy dining space for breakfast.
A matte black fireplace was a smart choice for this bedroom, as it makes the space feel clean and modern. Notice how interior designer Kelly Rogers complemented the feature's shape with artwork in square frames.
“The sink and the faucet are often the central focal point of the kitchen, so why not make a bold statement with a distinctive faucet?” asks Carolynne Arnold-Plowman, who designed this rustic kitchen. You can easily find a graceful new spout for under $100, but if you want the matte black finish used in the kitchen shown here — which is among the boldest and trendiest looks in hardware and plumbing fittings right now — be prepared to spend more, at least $250. And you may want to swap out the rest of your hardware to match, bringing you closer to $500.
Drinks, anyone? Because the bar is located just off the dining room, the designers used gold wallpaper and black cabinets to make the two spaces look cohesive. A mini fridge keeps wine bottles at the perfect temperature as well.
White walls and a matte black door make a classic combination in this foyer. To the left, a console table gives the owners a place to drop their keys and mail, while a geometric light fixture illuminates the space overhead.
Designers created a bathroom that would carry on the timeless feel of the kitchen into the bathroom, but would be youthful enough to appeal to kids and stylish enough to appeal to guests. They used matte black fixtures to add a fun contrast, but they also left open the possibility for the addition of color.
A large window above the sink provides plenty of natural light to the dark bar area. The jet black walls and black and white photographs help separate the bar area from the rest of the living room, giving it a unique feel.
Built-in lighting in the bar top overhang reflects on the shiny countertops in this attractive, contemporary kitchen. Glass tile runs horizontally to create a textural backsplash above the counter. Stainless steel appliances and white cabinets form the long shape, and a black matte floor finishes the look.
To ensure that this guest bedroom looked more modern than rustic, the designers balanced the deer triptych and raw wood coffee table with matte black floor lamps. Geometric-printed pillows and throws also elevate the space's style.
A quiet room for reading in cushioned white chairs, this contemporary living space features matte black walls and a built-in fire place that provides a feeling of privacy and seclusion. Designs in the framed art, sofa and area rug give the space texture paired with an overhead brass chandelier.
