All-Black Kitchen

The unexpected use of deep, dark tones in a kitchen creates a look that's sleek and moody.

"There is something magical about an all-black kitchen that works as well as this one does," says Kim Johnson, co-author of the popular Desire to Inspire blog. "I typically prefer white kitchens, but the matte finish of the cabinetry and the tile backsplash keep this from being too in-your-face. The glass-front cabinet doors also help keep the look light. I also love that the island has a high back to hide potential cooking messes."
