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. Stainless steel fixtures are all the shine this kitchen needs for its luxurious aura. Black and wood as used here are entirely minimalist, with every kitchen item hidden carefully away in recessed cabinets.

Black-on-black kitchens look gorgeous as well! This one uses different textures for contrast and depth. Nearby, a green rug and a wild vertical garden bring color to this dark and sophisticated style. Wood isn't limited to classic style kitchens.

Since attics are at the top of the home, the option for natural light should be priority. While many homes don't have skylights, other options such as dormer windows which are located in the walls of the attic, as opposed to the ceiling, and even solar tubes can be installed to bring light into the master bedroom attic space. Along with natural light, views to the outside should be considered, as humans thrive on seeing daylight and fresh scenery daily. Take full advantage of the height and the views, you are at the top of the world, literally!
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.

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. A bit of curve rounds out hard edges. This wave-design bench leads up to an orange-hued enclave in this black-and-silver interior.
