Dramatic Black Kitchen

A black wall, island, cabinets and appliances give this space edgy appeal.

"Here is another black kitchen that I fell in love with the moment I first saw it," says Kim Johnson, co-author of the popular Desire to Inspire blog. "When you have plenty of windows like this one does, a black wall has little darkening effect. Instead, it's all drama and the black anchors the space. The light-coloured pottery pops against for a huge impact. Plus, it was a fantastic idea to paint the fridge a matte black, so it blends seamlessly."
