High-Contrast Country Kitchen

Highlight deluxe materials with a simple palette of black and white.

The homeowner of this lakeside summer home played with a simple, high-impact palette in this kitchen. Black soapstone countertops and iron barstools make a bold statement, while white Carrara marble, cream-painted cabinets and glass-paned doors make the room light and bright. The cabinet hardware, polished faucet and streamlined pendant lamps play up the luxuriousness of the space.
