One of my favorite new looks for the bathroom is actually a very old look: black and white. There's no color combo more classic, and the bathroom, typically a smaller space, is perfect for simple, high-drama design statements. Whether you go for contrasting black and white tile, or modernize the look with minimal, matte black fixtures, this is a style that's sure to please — and to stand the test of time.

White marble and matte black fixtures are a winning combination in this modern bathroom from Houzz. The black mirror and black pendant light fit neatly into the look, and I love the way the round mirror relates to the round vessel sink.

In this bathroom from Contemporist, black fixtures set up a beautiful contrast with the white mosaic tile walls, while the wood ceiling adds a bit of warmth. (The matching wall-mounted shelf is a nice, sleek alternative to a shower caddy, or storing bottles on the floor.)

A wooden vanity and a patterned cement tile floor add a touch of old-world style to this very modern bathroom from Nordic Design.

In this space from No Glitter No Glory, black fixtures, on a background of white marble, almost seem to pop off the wall.

The combo of black, white, and gold is very classic, but square tiles (and square vessel sinks and black fixtures) give this bathroom on Design*Sponge a modern twist.

Simplicity reigns in this bathroom from Yellowtrace, where a marble sink on a simple black base steals the show.

This black bathroom from Vogue Living might be my favorite. I love the way it works the high/low look, with a very modern, very casual cast iron sink contrasted with a wall of white marble. The little shelf on the left, a perfect place for hand soap, is a thoughtful touch.
