When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined; the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken.
Steel and chrome feature in this darker space. Matched by an almost-black art piece at its entrance, only a wooden dining table and chrome swaying lights break the tone.

Shades across the brown spectrum may not be the first thing that pops into your head when you imagine a trendy kitchen space, but this design has sandwiched a few together to great effect. The T shaped kitchen island is a really nice touch too if you have that kind of floor space.

Yellow is a bold design choice, but it's popular in adventurous kitchens for a good reason – it's a cheerful color full of energy and optimism, associated with cleanliness and freshness. Part of this energetic perception contributes to its association with the marketing of healthy foods. It's appetizing! Yellow is the color of ripe bananas and fresh citrus fruits like tart pineapples and lemons. And if you're working with an especially dark kitchen, there's simply no better way to brighten the space and let this warm natural tone bring nature to you. Check out our yellow room inspiration post to see ideas for the rest of the home.
Strong red accents steal the spotlight in this modern setup, contrasted beautifully by the rich blue window chair. The colors are unexpected against the swathe of beige and white units in this space–and the best part is that these color pops can be changed out, without the expense of ripping out cabinetry and shelving, if you should become tired of your color choices.

While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
Cool greys and creamy whites are the perfect calming influence for this modern kitchen. The pops of yellow in the cabinets and backsplash of this kitchen make it extra welcoming.

Keeping the shelving in the island open in this sunny kitchen make the whole room feel bigger.
Copper wall paneling gives this kitchen a bit of a design edge. Yellow Eames-inspired chairs are the ultimate pop of color in this otherwise neutral design.
