Why we love this pic: From the chic, contrasting color palette to the striking mixed-metal hardware, everything about this space screams contemporary perfection. Meanwhile, a select few statement pieces, like that sliding ladder and unforgettable black-and-gold hood ensure this design is as unique and personal as it is modern.

The takeaway: Mixed metals, a sleek color palette, and a few personal touches are a no-fail recipe for a killer contemporary design.

Get the look:
