The all-white, almost antiseptic color scheme that has been in vogue makes way for the resurgence of a kitchen with a smoky look.
The all-white kitchen? Been there, done that. Today’s most innovative designers are reimagining kitchens in the darkest of shades. And we’re talking about more than just countertops. These edgy, sophisticated spaces are infused with ebony and grey-hued cabinetry, appliances and accessories. Here are a few innovative ways to create this new, dramatic look.
