So much style in so little a space: Wood paneling and textured black wallpaper make a dramatic impression in this narrow powder room. The pendant light takes on sculptural dimension hung in front of the tall window.
The walls of this modern, gothic dining room are covered in raw steel, contrasting with neo-Baroque acrylic chairs by Acrila and a dramatic polycarbonite fixture by Zaha Hadid. This contrast of materials creates layers of depth in a high-rise condo that's filled with natural light.
Where the master suite was soft and pink, the attached bath is dark and dramatic thanks to sleek black floors and cabinets. A gray marble backsplash in the shower adds interest to the room and accentuates its edgy aesthetic.
Artistic Artwork and Textured Walls and Floor in Foyer

Master Bathroom Draws Inspiration From Industrial NYC Buildings
A moody color palette and industrial accents are used to echo the looks of New York City buildings in the master bathroom of an Atlanta townhome.

Wood-look tile alternates with black tile to create visual contrast.

Modern Kitchen With Wall Wine Rack and Shark Skelton Decor
This spacious kitchen features an industrial vibe with painted exposed pipes and a wall to wall wine rack made from terra cotta pipes. Oversized white subway tiles create a countertop-to-ceiling backsplash, while light oak floors cover the floor. A shark skeleton floating over the dining table adds a funky vibe.
This amazing home in Austin is a perfect showcase for imaginative architecture. Instead of doing the usual—letting the house fill the 50 by 150-foot single-family lot—the architects designed the residence to stretch along the length of the land. This allowed for a mix of different outdoor spaces that could be natural extensions off of individual rooms.
