Art Decor Macaron Bakery With Brass Chandelier, Crescent Bar and Jade Velvet Chairs
This lavish macaron bakery features a crescent shaped bar that adds counter space and supports a glass encased macron display. A ornamental brass chandelier commands the room in the dimensional white ceiling. Black walls create a bold contrast to the white ceiling and compliment the chandelier with thin gold trim framing the paneling.
Captivating Art Deco Sitting Space With Black Wall Panelling, Green Velvet Chair and Prism Coffee Table
Black wall panelling with gold trim and corner embellishments adds texture and a sophisticated base for this sitting area design. Wand sconce lighting is mounted within the panels reflecting a warm glow on the black paint. The deep, vivid green of the velvet chair looks beautiful against the wall and black and white patterned floor. A geometric table adds the finishing touch to the sleek concept.
The women's salon at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 includes a space for a private vanity. Pendant lights frame the vanity mirror and are meant to mimic the look of earrings, while a vintage glass chandelier adds an additional touch of glamour to the art deco-style space.
The owner of this bedroom wanted a tv; black wallpaper helps camouflage it. The wallpaper seams turned out to look awkward, so to hide them, the designer cleverly added thin, black molding to give the walls a paneled look.
This poolhouse doubles as a spectacular hangout pad with edgy finishes, a cool black-and-gray palette and the star attraction: commissioned angel wings spanning 10 feet mounted onto a brass accent wall.
Glamorous Black Home Office With White Rug and Fur Chair
This black home office was originally an enclosed porch with no electricity or air conditioning. Picture frame molding was added to the walls, and pocket doors replaced the previous room's swinging doors. A fun pendant fixture from Terrain throws interesting patterns on the wall at night.
This media room reflects the Art Deco era by featuring a refined touch of 1920s Hollywood glamour. Comfortable seating, polished nickel tables and lamps and state-of-the art media equipment work to create a seamless theater experience.
“This room has some really beautiful moments: the bold, striped fireplace commands attention; the combo of zebra, white leather, mirror and crystal set against a moody black backdrop is pure Hollywood glam; simple, two-tone damask patterns add a sense of tradition and comfort that tempers the sharp lines of the very modern wall and floor patterns,” says designer Candice Olson. “However, I think this is a case of both too much and too little. Too many patterns — stripes, checks, zebra and damask — all scream for attention. Undertaking such an ambitious painted floor with very little time prevented Design Star contestants NataLee and Tashica from really finishing this room, and it shows on so many levels, from the shredded bedding to the perplexing mirror/aquarium placement in the fireplace. I would have simply let the striped fireplace graphic be the star; painted the floor white to contrast the black and yellow walls and brought in a large zebra-patterned carpet for interest in the center of the room. This duo's predictable perimeter bed placement reminds me a bit of summer camp — a little more swanky, mind you. I would like to have seen a few beds dressed as sexy daybeds positioned in the center with cocktail tables beside and a spectacular chandelier above, very LA-luxe (in much less time).”
Sophisticated Lobby Highlighting Black Paneled Walls With Gold Trim, Corner Embellishments and Two Pronged Sconces
A panel design brings texture and sophisticated style to heighten the appearance of the black walls in this bakery lobby. Gold trim within the panels catches the light for an extra glow throughout the design, and corner embellishments add the perfect finishing detail. Double pronged sconces bounce warm light off the black paint.
