Dark Meets Light
The dining room is illuminated with a dark metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French Country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light.
A dark headboard rests against a metallic statement wall that draws the eye while simultaneously bounces light around the room – adding levity and a modern atmosphere to this rustic inspired retreat. The exposed-bulb lighting above ties the room together and completes the rustic feel.
The lighted frame of a custom mirror steals the show in this standout master bathroom. Quartz countertops are thick, giving them a weighty feel that balances the dark geometry of the custom cabinets. Full-overlay cabinet doors feature boxy modern hardware that echos the square marble tiles on the floor.
Banquette Seating Meets Picnic Table in Rustic-Style Dining Room
A custom picnic table and built-in bench serve as a dining spot in this country home. Mission-style metal pendant lights illuminate the table’s rich wood surface. Dark-brown cement floors and undyed-linen curtains blend in with the home's natural setting. But this place isn’t as rustic as it appears -- the cabinet in the corner houses a high-end refrigerator.
Gold Transitional Kitchen With Glamorous Chandelier Lights
Contemporary farmhouse meets old-school Hollywood glamour in this stunning open-concept kitchen and dining space. Chandeliers above the dark wood island countertop are an unexpected touch, while lighted glass-front cabinets and a gold faux-finished ceiling add to the sparkle of the space.
This chic country kitchen has beautiful dark cabinetry that offsets the crisp white paneling and sea foam green walls. Modern meets Southern Victorian style with mismatched overhead lighting, a subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a marble countertop.
Traditional meets midcentury modern in a St. Regis Sea Villas dining room. The contrasting colors and wood tones tie together by keeping the color scheme light. A dark round dining table is the focal point of this dazzling dining area.
Home Office: Rihanna's Vacation Rental in Aspen, Colo.
A spacious home office features built-in bookcases and a large desk area with plenty of room for small group meetings. A dark brown coffered ceiling encases a skylight which provides a touch of natural light to the space.
This master bedroom is a surprise of color and light in a scale-appropriate setting. White plaster walls meet dark oak floors in a room anchored by a bright green tiled fireplace flanked on either side by French doors and green chairs.
Modern meets traditional in this renovated row house living room and hallway. Wood stairs in the hallway are covered in a dark grey floor paint, with mahogany doors leading into the living space. A soft blue sectional sits beneath the detailed ceiling and modern light fixture with new wide plank wood flooring in a neutral finish below.
Industrial Kitchen With Wood Cabinets & Red Barstools
Contemporary meets industrial in this loft kitchen. The exposed ductwork actually acts as a space divider, a perfect example of form marrying with function. The dark wood cabinets go well with the room's other woods and neutral tones, while the white tile backsplash works to keep the room light and bright. Red barstools at the kitchen island provide the kitchen's lovely pop of color.
