Given that black has been taking over kitchen decor lately, it's no surprise that we're starting to see it pop up in bathrooms, too. And this stunning design by Jaclyn Johnson shows us just how to work the moody trend in this smaller space. The striking cabinetry does have a hard edge, but it's softened by a matching set of subtle mirrors that have the added benefit of reflecting more light. Gold hardware and lighting fixtures complement the circular frames, and the creative use of matching grout weaved into the geometric tile keeps the look cohesive down to the floor. Since this color scheme is minimal — black, white, and gold are the primary shades — the most alluring accessory to the raven-painted centerpiece is the area rug that carries the pigment amid its eye-catching pattern. The red allows the hue of the moment to really pop, making it a go-to way to showcase the shade with a modern yet timeless touch. Ready to try this look in your home? Don't forget to complement the inky finish with colors that heighten its dramatic effect.
