Classic, Black and White Living Room with Elegant French Doors
This classic, black and white family room uses elegant French doors with matching transoms to create a bright, white space. These features allow plenty of natural light to flow into this large room, creating a spacious and vibrant look. To warm the white space, black accents were added, creating a warm, inviting place to relax and entertain. Patterned curtains and chairs were used to soften the contrasting black and white color palette, while a white, high armed sofa and a black and white coffee table anchor the space.
The focal point of this white family room is a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams and two black circular chandeliers. A white sofa and armchairs are paired with a woven natural fiber area rug, while two black French doors open to reveal backyard patio area.
A light-colored backless sofa and armchair create an elegant seating area. Two matching Victorian tables with gold legs and black tops sit on the light pink rug. Darker pink pillows and floor-length drapes counter the light furniture and white walls. French doors open onto a small porch to enjoy the view.
This simple hallway features all-over white walls paired with sliding black wood doors and French oak flooring. The dining room area and a spectacular view of the Chicago skyline sit at the end of the hallway.
A black and white palette in this bedroom gets small punches of color from purple pillows and fresh flowers. A trio of large windows and French doors are left uncovered to keep the room from looking dark.
The elegantly white dining room features French doors that open to terraces with beautiful views of the ocean. Weathered ceiling planks bring a rustic quality to the space, where a sophisticated table is surrounded by contemporary black-and-chrome armchairs.
