Simple-Chic Kitchen

Black countertops pop in an otherwise all-white, modern kitchen. The purity of the island adds a sculptural note.

"Deborah Berke & Partners' kitchen for interior designer Suzanne Shaker on Shelter Island, New York, features a wide swath of horizontal shelving, adding a pleasing sense of openness to the space," says Julie Carlson of Remodelista. "Shaker personalized the space by propping a framed photo by her friend, photographer Maria Robledo, on the counter."
