Black-and-White Kitchen With Open Floor Plan
Black cabinets, island and dining table bring dramatic flair to the bright white walls and marble floors in this open floor plan kitchen. Gold pendant lights bring a touch of metallic over the sleek, built-in dining table, and the entire space opens up to the living room, making it perfect for entertaining.
“I love everything in my home, because almost everything has a story behind it,” Tamara says about the small touches that define her bedroom. When asked about the inspiration for the range of styles and approaches she displays in her home, she simply replies, “It just comes to me. It’s the hardest when I feel I have no inspiration to be creative but most of the time everything inspires me!”
This California home's design doesn’t stop on the first floor. Upstairs, Brenna, one of Tamara Beltran's three daughters, has a room every bit as cool as the rest of this interior. High energy patterns keep this room’s classic black and white color palette looking lively, alongside a few bright pops of color. Just like downstairs, this bedroom is full of cool little details, like the stenciled headboard and monogram wall art.
Tamara’s bedroom is a far cry from the high-energy of the living area. Away from the bright colors and energetic patterns, this is a space designed for relaxation. The dark gray walls set an intimate mood, overlaid by black and white accents that continue the calm feeling. Warm pops of pink from the bedding provide contrast. The art in this space is simple and focused, a tribute to the designer, her husband, and the home that they share.
Black and White Galley Kitchen With Glass Lantern Pendant
Designer Nathalie Tremblay maximized space in this 1960s bungalow galley kitchen with a 24-inch-deep refrigerator/freezer for better traffic flow, created a work "triangle" despite the corridor-like shape of the actual space, and chose a simple, black-and-white palette to keep visual clutter to a minimum.
Contemporary Black and White Kitchen With Stainless Accents
This contemporary kitchen features sleek black cabinets contrasted with crisp white countertops. The stainless steel appliances, hardware and lighting add shine to the space, while beautiful hardwood floors provide warmth. A gray and white backsplash brings a lightness to the room.
Black and White Contemporary Chef's Kitchen with Lots of Storage Options
This family of five (plus their four pugs) wanted a clean-lined, contemporary kitchen without a lot of extra muss and fuss, so expansive cabinets were installed to hold all of the family's tools and accessories. They also added an extra large kitchen island to hold two Viking dishwashers and provide even more storage and prep space for the family.
Floral Tile Backsplash and Stainless Steel Fixtures in Contemporary Kitchen With Black and White Island
A floral pattern backsplash ties together the black and white details in this kitchen design. A black island base with white Cambria countertop creates a bold color contrast complimenting the contemporary look of the room. Stainless steel fixtures are built into the cabinetry maximizing floor space and reflecting the bright lighting.
Contemporary Entryway Shines With Starburst Light Fixture
A floral print adds a fun, feminine touch to this entryway. Although the space is fairly small, designer Sarah Wittenbraker used a statement light fixture and stacks of books to pack the room with personality.
