High-Contrast Kitchen

Use glossy surfaces to create intriguing reflections.

With the ethos that less is more when designing her own modern kitchen, designer Julie Charbonneau stepped back many times to judiciously examine each item. "I usually put stuff all over, but this space looks much better if it stays empty," says Charbonneau. Against the clean, white kitchen, the large, dark-wood dining table takes centre stage under a showstopping light fixture.
