There's nothing more elegant than a classic black and white look. Read on for kitchens that combine classy and edgy with a simple color palette.
Design and colour trends change constantly, but there’s no denying that black and white will always make a space look bold and beautiful. Especially if that space is the kitchen. These six homes from Western Canadian designers will make you fall in love with black and white.
Designer Ayshea Mojadidi has cracked the code: black, white and gold may just be my favourite color palette ever. White quartz countertops and matte black cabinets along with a bright white hood fan and gold hardware combine to bring light, warmth and elegance to this Vancouver kitchen. Read more here.
Graphic backsplashes can set the vibe of a kitchen completely. Peter Rose Architecture and Stephanie Brown Inc. chose this marbled panda backsplash for a fun, creative statement. It’s paired with plain white countertops and white, black and wood cabinets, because who says you can only choose one cabinet material? The repetition of these three colors make the kitchen come together beautifully. Read more here.
This clean-lined kitchen by Andrea Rodman Interiors is nearly all white—the beautiful, 13-foot-long white island countertop incorporates a white faucet. The integrated fridge blends in with the light wood cabinets creating a uniform look, plus the wood warms up what would otherwise be a stark and utilitarian space. A few black stools and appliances bring a bit of much-needed darkness, too. Find out more here.
This Vancouver kitchen by &Daughters uses the same white and gray marble for backsplash and countertops, elegantly combining the material with the white cabinets and integrated fridge. Four black pendant lights complement the black faucet and pantry, and the pink stools give the room a pop of color. Find more details here.
This luxe home bar by Jane Dabrowski of Paramax Homes blows everyone away. The island catches the eye instantly, with its creative shape that sets this kitchen apart from others. Gold and black suspension lights combine with the gold accents all around the rest of the kitchen—the devil really is in the details.
Black on black is an unusual pick for any room in general, but this Edmonton kitchen by Eustace and Diana Tidswell of Kresswell Interiors proves that it can be done. The black herringbone pattern looks beautiful under the walnut shelf. White accents are all around—read more about it here.
