This modern black and white bathroom is truly luxurious. The brass faucets, drawer handles and mirror frames provide a touch of opulence. The black honeycomb tile floor is echoed in the glass-walled walk-in shower. A double vanity provides sleek symmetry. But the true star is a stunning black and white freestanding soaking tub, a gorgeous spot to let the day's stresses soak away.
Heavy, rope-tied drapes with tasseled edge create an elegant frame over the entryway to this dresser cubby. Light reflects off the mirror dresser and catches the sheen in the white wallpaper pattern. Leopard print carpet connects the cubby to the the adjoining sitting room with small pineapple ottoman and gold chandelier with crystal details.
The designers wanted the wow factor in the foyer of this home, so they added an art piece in the ceiling to draw the eye upward and add texture and dimension. Suspended from the ceiling are white pendant lights that give the space a little bit of modern flair, while a green velvet bench resting beneath a unique wood framed mirror makes the space pop. To give some boundaries to the space, designers added a woven rug.
A tile border outlines the split wall in this beautiful traditional bathroom. White paneling provides a break between the neutral floor tile and the neutral wall paint given a marbled look from the elegant hanging chandelier. A copper faucet is echoed with metallic picture and mirror frames. The dark vanity adds a contrast to the bright, warm space.
This small guest bedroom mixes warm wooden tones with black metal furniture to create a fun transitional vibe. An accent wall with gray patterned wallpaper features floating white nightstands and sconce lighting on either side of the black metal frame bed. A wooden dresser compliments the tan leather throw pillow on the bed and wooden circle mirror on the wall.
The 3-light vanity lights above each sink have a glossy shade of barn red with a chrome base. These lights coordinate with the other red accents used for this bathroom, which help tie the space to the adjoining red guest bedroom. The two tall mirrors that sit between the vanity lights and sinks have rustic wood frames with a distressed white finish.
The front porch of Rollins' bedroom wing features tailored console skirts in the theme of white and dark navy and the accompanying mirrors with a lattice frame complement the lattice motif in the rest of the garden. Rollins points out that the color she has chosen for her home's shutters is purposeful. "You can't tell if it's black or navy. It's a little softer than black," but the color offers stunning contrast to the home's painted white brick.
This simple modern design boasts quality over quantity. Smooth, dark wooden cabinetry supports a lifted marble countertop. A white vessel sink with a modern stainless steel faucet is positioned below a mirror with a frame echoing the cabinet color. Large tile on the walls has a warm, neutral look in the low light of the sconces.
This sitting room is a tiny space that was maximized by creating a monochromatic scheme. By using materials in the same color but by varying the texture and incorporating elements of shine, the space feels more spacious than it is. Using over-scaled damask wallpaper with a metallic finish brings a traditional pattern some glamour. The mirrored desk brings a sexy vibe while allowing the eye to pass over it cleanly. Modern framed artwork also gives the room a more updated look. The white shag balances all the color and shine in the room.
An Italian serpentine walnut three-drawer commode, a Tuscan carved giltwood mirror and an 18th century English chinoiserie tall case clock are in the foyer designed by Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs for the Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta. The black-and-white floor has a zig-zag pattern. On the commode are two gold Ormolu ornaments on lucite bases and a pair of 1930’s Chinese green hardstone lamps with lavender shades. Two 19th century regency-style chairs with an ebony finish are underneath framed original landscape oils by Tyler Colgan.
This inspiration for this transitional, white bathroom was a vintage tourism brochure of Catalina Island. The beachy feel of Catalina Island is incorporated into the design with terrariums hung carefully above the oversized tub with thick, twisted rope Wicker Roman shades add to the casual, California design while complementing the lighter wood floors and bathtub caddy. Dark wood frames a large, leaning floor mirror and recessed lighting illuminates the room.
I must admit, I am slightly obsessed with convex mirrors. I love the impact they add to a space, especially above this pair of dining consoles flanking the butler's pantry. Check out how the distressed frame speaks to the painted driftwood base of the console. The body of the lamp is as porous and textured as the white driftwood, but we specified it in black as a nod to the dining chandelier and to help ground/substantiate the glass tops. The mask is a find from the homeowners’ travels and also works well with the artwork.
