One Great Room: British Style

Black and white and gorgeous all over--how to get a distinctly English look.

So clean, so simple, so calm. White painted floors and perfectly scaled furniture create the look. Set against the large neoclassical windows, the beautifully inlaid chairs and copper globe pendant add just enough opulence to offset the room’s austerity.

Gorgeous palette—a shiny black tile back splash and aluminum cabinetry.

Another view of the dining room.

Add two cats, a cowhide rug, and some black sofas and you’ve got a home.
