Cutting-Edge Ebony Basement

White cabinets reflect light and provide substantial storage.

It seems counter-intuitive to paint your basement walls and ceiling in such a dark hue, but stylist Arren Williams kept the space bright with mood lighting. "The undermount lighting in the high-gloss storage units highlights our collections," says Williams. This modern design has a masculine feel without crying out "bachelor pad".
