Proof That You Can Have a Black + White Home with Kids

I'm not sure what I love more, this bright, crisp, clean home or the tiny toddling baby that resides within it. One thing I do know for sure: a black and white space is totally up my alley. It's bright and fresh and perfect for spring! Captured by Ashlee Raubach & designed by Nicole Davis, there's more to be found in the depths of the gallery.
From OD Interiors... When the Shupe's hired me for this renovation I was so excited to have a client that was willing and ready to be daring and bold! I was so inspired to work with a couple that had so much style, beauty and fashion sense - I wanted to bring that into their home. They live both in the US and overseas so when they are here, we wanted it to be a space they are eager to get back to, and cozy of course!
The Shupe's loved black and white and wanted to keep the space pretty minimal. We kept their existing floors and painted them white, and went over the kitchen tile with black epoxy. All of the trim was painted a glossy black to contrast the white walls and drapery. I loved how the camel leather sofa added a great texture and a lot of warmth into the space.
The client loves to collect art and I definitely wanted to showcase that with a unique gallery wall to accent the dining room, all while keeping the space open and easy for this young family of three to play and live in. Our goal was to get a lot of great design into a 900 square feet home - and we feel that this was a success!
In the master I thought the four poster bed would look great paired with the Ikea hack nightstands that Ally, my client, made herself! I loved the mix of bold pattern, colors, and a dramatic bed in a small space. The master bath we went with a lot of white on white and let it feel serene while still playing into the black and white design of the entire home.

Sennet's room we changed it up a bit with dark walls. I wanted to create a space that was playful, graphic, and interesting! The furniture was a mix of modern and vintage which helped with the eclectic feel of the space. I loved that the Shupe's had great items to work with from their art collecting and weekends exploring the flea market!
