I've been noticing a pretty serious trend lately... and I like it. Black and white with wooden accents. The key, in my opinion, is so use a light to medium toned variety of wood so you have enough contrast with both the black and the white. Something green doesn't hurt either - notice how there's a green accent in almost every room above?
Which one is your favorite? I love the first one with the fold down bar. Want some more inspiration of the wooden variety? Head over here.
