In the Black!

I'm slightly obsessed with black kitchens at the moment so I thought I would do a post on some of my favourites that I have saved over the year! Enjoy!

This is definately one of my favourites from a home in St Barts which was published in Living Etc magazine! I however saved it from Brown Button's gorgeous blog!


This kitchen is by John Jacob Zwiegelaar in South Africa! So beautiful!

This is my most recent find from Heidi Claire's fabulous blog - love the floor!


I think my obsession started with Gwynth Paltrow's kitchen (can't remember where I saved it from)



Doesn't it show off the white dinnerware so well?



Another angle of Gwynth's! Yum!




I'll finish with this Christmassy cabinet via Country Living magazine. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Tracey x

Post of the week Tracey!!! Wonderfully styled, fabulous photos. My Optician splashed out $30K. for a very swish new 2-pac black kitchen following his divorce. Its very dramatic, but in his place it has a touch of the middle-aged playboy on his last hurrah!

These beauties are far more subtle & elegant. The happiest of weekends to & Hayley.

Great post!Love it!
When I finished my kitchen (in the white) I've seen beautiful picture of dark one and I had to paint something ( anything) in Dulux Raven. My sons wall was dark gray for a while as a humble substitude.
Hayley & Tracey have a great weekend!

They are all gorgeous! I've never seen Gwyneth Paltrow's kitchen before - it is stunning. I've heard she loves to cook - who wouldn't in this kitchen?!!

I love black and black Kitchens are just G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S !
For me black gives so much drama to a decoration ! The last picture with a mix of bright green is stuning

That first kitchen is just beautiful.
I like those wicker lamps above the island.
Also love the black cabinet with the white dish ware inside. Really eye catching.
Lovely post.

I love these black kitchens. What makes them work so well is that they all have white floors and white accessories. I wonder if we would love them as much if they were accessorized with color????

Enzie Shahmiri said...

I would have never thought that a black kitchen could look great. These are trés chic!!!

Hello Tracey - am right with you on this one...i have been obsessing about the same thing and these images have just about tipped me over the edge. We have the most gross kitchen ever - house/garden/location was perfect but oohhh that kitchen. I wonder if i can paint it. Mel xxx
