The niche between the two bookshelves is the perfect spot for the crib; in later years, a headboard will tuck neatly up against the wall. The gold polka dots on the back wall are brought out by the spherical gold pendants in the center of the room.
This inviting kitchen features white cabinets paired with black countertops and a white tile backsplash. Lucite counter stools line the kitchen island and create a casual spot for eating, while a pendant light illuminates the space from above.
Leaving no space unturned for entertaining purposes, this foyer turned wine bar is accented with rustic wood elements and vintage collectables. Guests can grab a barstool and stop for a drink as soon as they're inside the door.
Black walls give dramatic dimension in this dining room, especially when paired with the large vividly colored painting. To counter them, the ceiling and the rest of the decor is kept simple and subtle.
The fastest way to add a little "prep" to your style is with a bit of trim. Designer Tobi Fairley adds white piping to the dining chairs and black trim to the lattice-print drapes for some classic preppy details. A modern rug, table and chandelier keep the room feeling updated.
This transitional bedroom features a black metal bed frame, gray and white bed linens, and gray throw pillows. A white globe chandelier hangs above, while a black wood nightstand is positioned on either side. A wood table lamp, flowers and stack of green books sit atop each nightstand.
This view from the guest bathroom to the adjoining guest bedroom shows how one space transitions to the other. Three smart thermostats (one on each floor) that can be remotely operated and monitored help maintain desired temperatures and control energy bills.
A sleek stainless steel wall oven is encased in black cabinetry in the 2014 HGTV Dream Home kitchen. Black cabinets are topped with a thick countertop, while simple black hardware keeps a low profile for a black-on-black look.
