The black and white tile backsplash in a traditional harlequin design provides an instant pop of contrast along one wall of this otherwise neutral kitchen for an eye-catching effect. By using these direct color opposites, the silver tones of the stainless appliances and brushed nickel cabinetry hardware blend with the rest of the kitchen, with the black tying in the color of the granite countertop. Design by AB Design Elements.
A fireplace in this transitional master bedroom warms the ivory walls on the cooler days while a large sliding glass door and clerestory windows allow for natural light and fresh air. Chic beams accentuate the bright and fresh palette that is used throughout the space while floral pillows and a black and white floral ottoman add subtle contrast. Mounting a television above the fireplace allows space for a small sitting area and keeps the aesthetic clean and organized.
This kid's gray, transitional room is personalized with a name on the wall and features a nailhead-trim headboard and plush pillows. The complementary orange and navy blue color palette adds punch to the space, while graphic prints and lush fabrics add interest with texture.
A polished wood coffee table reflects the natural light streaming into this contemporary living room. A neutral sofa and leather tufted stools provide seating in front of the fireplace, and plants add color and life to the design.
The desk area includes a custom, floating glass desk that is illuminated with LED tape lighting. Large floating shelves provide space for storage and display, and help tie together the kitchen and sitting area.
