Kitchen Bar with Black Silestone Countertop and Yellow Bar Stools
Get a modern classic look with affordable elements, like a black silestone countertop instead of higher-priced granite or marble, and cheerful furniture. These yellow barstools, which cost $260 for a pair, have a durable plastic seat to handle spills and messes.
The rug in this tidy dining room is the absolute star of the space. The mud cloth pattern seen throughout this home is repeated on the small planter at the center of the table. On the wall, a set of floating shelves highlight a curated selection of decorative objects. The divided colors of the shelves mirror the bifurcated tones of the wall itself, for an even more eye-catching moment.
Black and White Contemporary Playroom With Red Phone Booth
This incredible kid's playroom is a delight for any age: a custom mural on the chalkboard wall features Dr. Seuss's classic words and cool London-inspired artwork. A red telephone booth and striped rug are sassy complements to the look.
The exercise room also includes a digital incline trainer treadmill for a good cardio workout, with a screen for surfing the web, watching TV, or working out anywhere in the world (like running on the beach in Malibu).
Black and White Foyer Sets Elegant Statement in Home's Entry
In the foyer, black and white zebra striped benches and black and white art illuminated by black sconces help to create a statement when guest first enter the home, setting the tone for the rest of the home's spaces.
The stylish entry creates the perfect first impression for HGTV Smart Home 2019 in Dallas, Texas. A geometric porcelain tile design inset within the white oak hardwood floor packs a visual punch, Old World-style chandeliers illuminate the space from above, and custom framed black and white photography captures images of the local area.
During the renovation of a home in Greenwich, Conn., Anthony DeRosa of DeRosa Builders was able to incorporate a wet bar into the design of the family room without adding on or stealing space from the seating area. “We fit the bar into a little-used closet,” says DeRosa. “We had cabinets custom built for the space. The biggest challenge was finding a sink small enough to fit within the tight dimensions.” Mission, accomplished.
