Modern Furniture

The modern vibe of the bedroom is further shown in the furniture chosen for the space.  The bed is a black leather Barcelona-style bed.  This along with the Huppe white oak nightstands and dresser give the room a modern edge with its simplistic, but stunning design.  The lighter coloured furniture allows the black and blonde to have that extra pop of colour within the room.  In addition, this helps balance out the colour scheme by preventing the space to be overwhelmed by solely the black and blonde theme.  To finish off the design of the room, as seen above the dresser, we have amazing street art done by the talented Lindsay Nichols Photography.  This black and white artwork completes the black and blonde theme, with its hint of yellow throughout the piece.

Light Fixtures

This bedroom features two stunning and differing light fixtures.  The first one being the black drum semi-flush light fixture hanging above the bed.  On one hand, this light fixture continues the flow of the black and blonde theme.  On the other hand, the Pablo Solis free standing table lamps add a touch of white.  This adds light features to the space, contrasting with the dark.  In result, balancing out the hues chosen for this room.


The ensuite continues the flow of the modern vibe of the bedroom.  This can be seen through the ensuite’s modern lines, sleek wenge maple flat panel cabinetry and stainless steel pulls.  In addition to the Kohler Vox rectangle semi-flush vanity sinks, all key features cement the modern look of the ensuite.  The raised sinks and the ET2 Larmes linear suspension pendant give a hint of distinctiveness to the space.

Together, both spaces deliver a modern vibe with its black and blonde hues and simple pieces.  Each design element carefully selected successfully providing comfort and style!
