Most people want a bathroom that looks, above all other things, clean! This space reflects that desire, using a classic black-and-white design that always feels sharp and pulled together. The brass sconce and fixtures are a current-day update to the chrome and silver that have dominated the market in past years. Drawers under the double vanity hold essential bathroom items, and an angular brass tray between the sinks displays flowers in simple crystal vases.
This connected room blends several styles to create an eclectic combined seating and dining area. Painting the wardrobe doors to match the blue walls gives the illusion of a larger space.

Away from the office the home continues to expand, stretching into this beautiful dining room. Here, as in the living room, the couple's modern tastes complement the industrial bones of the space for an enticing combination.

The glass top table and patterned, silver-metallic pendants solidify the modern aesthetic alongside art on both walls.
The urn plant (Aechmea fasciata) is one of the more common and popular bromeliads. Beloved for its pink and purple flower, the urn plant also offers green and silver banded leaves.

Using a black railing can fit with traditional or modern architecture of a patio or porch, and it can help the railing or a fence seem to fade away when you're trying to relax and enjoy the view. This black railing uses steel cables, but designer Mosaic Group Architects and Remodelers has recreated the look on a lower-end budget. It spray-painted a chain link fence black and found the result also is far less obvious than with silver.

For the wine connoisseurs, select your favorite bottle for guests to write on with a gold or silver permanent marker.

The wallpaper in this cozy cottage dining room is called Deer Damask. This graphic paper adds texture to the space, while giving a nod to this Nashville musician's Southern roots.

They then added white dishes and vintage silver plates and pitchers to fill out the china cabinet and vintage glassware to put the finishing touches on the table.
