Hi everyone! I’m Jenn and I write for Arcadian Lighting, a website that profiles the best in lighting trends from around the world. My first job out of university was working as an editor for a home decor magazine, and that lit something inside of me that got me hooked on interior design - I'm a huge fan today of modern decor as well as antiques, fabric headboards, contemporary chandeliers, and more. I also love finding inspiring design websites like David j’s blog, where he never ceases to amaze me with his beautiful posts. So, thank you for letting me write here today!
Certain colour schemes for particular rooms are timeless, and kitchens in black and white are a fab example of this - classic and fun, these juxtaposing monochromatic hues seem to bring out the very best in one another. In checker floors as well as mixed up in cabinetry and light fixtures, these eight kitchens in black and white prove their staying power.
|A modish kitchen space takes these two standard colours and jazzes them up with sleek materials such as high-lacquered countertops and curvaceous bar-height chairs.|
|This kitchen in black and white exudes whimsical diner-like charm and would be ideal for a family-friendly household. The mix of pendant lights and crisp white cupboards keeps the space elegant and grown-up.|
|A great way to add black to a white kitchen is with details like a chalkboard, perfect for lists and reminders, or unique features including this port-hole door.|
|Kitchens in black and white look more balanced when the majority of the colour is centralized to one area of the space, such as this floor pattern.|
|The wood floors are matte black while the stately cabinetry is classic white - dashes of rich wood and ornate light fixtures break up the monochromatic qualities of this kitchen in black and white.|
|With an exposed white slate ceiling as well as chinaware and deep black cupboards, the two opposing shades balance out this space.|
|Dark cabinets with architectural detailing are the perfect match with streamlined white cupboards, black and white checker floors, and a grand ceiling light.|
An entire chalkboard accent wall adds the black to this kitchen, and a sliding white wood barn-like door hides a spacious pantry. The dark countertops and light cupboards are also quite smart.
