Bold contrasts run throughout this new construction home in the Oak Hill area of Nashville. The base of black and white sets the stage for a classic, modern look.
In the living room, clean-lined shelving frames the fireplace mantel as a feature as soon as you enter the home. The shelving allows for ample storage in this cozy family home. Bright light spills through the front windows, highlighting the room’s features.

In the kitchen, the cabinetry is grounded with painted black cabinets beneath fresh white countertops and subway tiled backsplash. A large-scale pendant adds a pop of light in the open kitchen.
Special details, like the brass toe kick, make the space more than simply functional! The open shelving blends into the backsplash, allowing unique dishes and serveware to take the spotlight.
The master bathroom boasts the key feature of contrast in the house with its wide black and white striped tile floors and walls. The shower’s stripes run to the ceiling, and brushed bronze fixtures and brass-accented hardware complete the room’s Hollywood Regency style.
To complement the bold look, accent niches were finished in brass and black.
At the front of the home, a small powder bathroom features streamlined faucet and lighting accents.
The floral hexagon tile in the upstairs double bath brings a retro feel to the clean aesthetic.
The light penny tiles of this guest bathroom floor contrast with the rich gray and black of the sink base.
At the back entrance of the house, a mudroom area allows for an easy drop space and ample shoe storage. The floors feature repurposed Chicago brick in a herringbone lay. The reclaimed wood accent stages an eye-catching backdrop for the hanging storage space.
