This Black and White Bathroom Is a Geometric Showstopper. This Chicago homeowner thought she wanted a white bathroom, but one photo changed her mind. That picture was the elegant black-and-white Bath of the Month in House Beautiful’s June 2016 issue, and when she saw it, she immediately grabbed the phone and called its designer, SuzAnn Kletzien. “That project gave her the courage to go beyond basic white — she was immediately drawn to the contrasting hues,” Kletzien says. Never one to replay a look, the designer stuck to that alluring palette but mixed classical elements, like picture-frame trim on the walls, mirrors, and glass doors, with statement-making flooring and dining room–worthy lighting that will inspire your next renovation.
This Laundry Room's Dog Shower Is the Pampering Your Pooch Needs. When designer Dina Bandman got the chance to create a laundry room at this year's San Francisco Decorator Showcase, she gave the typically overlooked space a dramatic upgrade: unexpected lighting, scenic wallpaper and a spot for sudsing pups were all integral. "The laundry room is the new powder room!" Bandman says. "It should feel special and be an extension of your home's design."
If You Want to Increase the Value of Your Home, Paint Your Kitchen This Color. We already knew Americans have an obsession with the color blue, but it turns out, it's a phenomenon that translates to real estate, too! Zillow's 2017 Paint Colors Analysis found that homes with blue bathrooms (often powder blue or periwinkle) sold for $5,400 more than expected. The bathroom color you'll want to avoid when selling your home? White. Houses with white, off-white, or eggshell white bathrooms sold for $4,035 less than similar homes.
