Modern Staircase With Chocolate and Cream Tones
A square window lets in natural light as guests walk up the chocolate-toned, wooden stair case of this urban space in Austin, TX. Dark wooden interior panels give the stairs a modern flair, with contrasting creamy tones giving the space an airy and open feel.
Family Room Decked Out in Chocolate and Cream Tones
Chocolate-colored walls and floors create intimacy in this grand family room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015, while marble mosaic tiles bounce light throughout the space. Designer Kathleen Navarra arranged a breakfast table topped with Copper Dune marble -- a stain-resistant marble with a warm brown finish -- to enjoy picturesque views of the San Francisco Bay.
Cozy, Transitional Living Room With Built-In Bookshelves
The white, transitional kitchen opens up to a comfortable living room. Built-in bookshelves provide storage and a place for adding decorative touches. A two-toned brown and cream sofa is paired with chocolate brown sofa and sleek, low coffee table for a comfortable, masculine-style living space.
This serene master bedroom in neutral tones feels calm and inviting. Separated from the modern staircase by milk glass screens, the space continues the modern design found throughout the rest of the home.
This master bedroom features luxurious textures and colors, mixing a soft rose tone with cream-colored furniture to create an elegant space. Neutral, floor-to-ceiling drapes cover the large windows, with a modern black dresser and neutral-toned bed bench seat.
A large American flag hangs above this home's modern spiral staircase made with metal handrails and wooden steps with built-in lights. A tiered metal chandelier hangs above neutral toned tile flooring and a round entryway table.
Sleek Modern Staircase With Steel Cable Railing and Black Handrails
This sleek staircase features perfect 90 degree edges on the beautifully shined wood steps. Steel cable rails add to the modern look as they flow beneath the black handrails. The darker tones look great against the clean white walls.
Modern Living Room Featuring Ice Blue Sectional Sofa and Ocean-inspired Modern Art
This lovely living room is accented with soothing tones of blue, including an icy sofa, accent pillows and a painting reminiscent of the sea. Modern accents, such as the angular coffee table and open staircase, balance the room's informal tendencies.
Wood steps match the hardwood flooring on this modern staircase. Glass panels supporting the steel railing brings an air of openness. White walls provide a clean backdrop for the warm wood tones and simple, yet stylish hallway decor including red flowers and a triangular table.
Contemporary Living Room Focuses on View With Large Windows
In this modern townhome, clean-lined furnishings and Zen-like art provide a serene feel so the view can take center stage. A color palette of cream, caramel, chocolate brown and pale yellow-green along with floor-to-ceiling windows help to bring the outdoors inside.
Contemporary Bedroom With Pale Blue Wall & Brown Curtains
A powder blue accent wall is the perfect complement to the rich chocolate tones in this contemporary bedroom. A long brown curtain stretches across an entire wall for maximum shade and light control. A dark stool and tan bench create seating around the modern glass fireplace, and neutral bed linens are topped with throw pillows to match the blue, brown and neutral tones in the surrounding design.
Circular Pendant Chandeliers, Black Bar Chairs and Midcentury Modern Cabinetry in Sleek Kitchen Design
The woodgrain kitchen island features an ashy-toned finish which blends the hardwood floor color into the cream and white tones used through the room. Black bar chairs line the overhanging countertop of the island for a stylish eat in set up under a pair of circle, industrial influence chandeliers. Sleek cabinetry with long stainless steel handles showcases the midcentury modern style influence.
Tones of white and cream create a comfortable, inviting, open-feeling guest bedroom. The furniture is small in scale, helping the room feel more expansive. Little pops of color -- which break up the pale shades in the room -- come from the fun, modern area rug.
Interesting design choices bring this room together in a classic fashion. Simple yet striking, a metal sculpture reminiscent of a starburst adds modern flair to the formal living room. A black leather wingback chair stands out grandly amidst the cream and white tones in the room.
