Black & white...


I love all-white kitchens..but unfortunately they aren't the easiest to maintain..more so in my country with all the spices and oil that are used for typical Indian cooking. Therefore  a combination of black & white is really hard to beat. It is never goes out of style and works perfectly whatever be the look of your kitchen...Here are the two ends of the style spectrum...

Warm country ( refined not rustic)...


Canadian House and Home

Cool contemporary...


Lagerlings


For me the first one is ideal for cozy family meals cooked and eaten in the kitchen..while the second one would be perfect to show off to your friends..your culinary skills ( or lack thereof ) notwithstanding! And how cool is that library ladder to reach the higher cupboards ( and my favourite Tord Boontje garlands )!!

Which one do you like?

I prefer the first kitchen as it is more warm and inviting. The second is too sleek for me although I love the rustic element of the ladder.

Love the first one- especially the floor. BTW Imagine trying to get turmeric stains out from the second one's counter top!

The second one is fantastic! Exciting and dynamic. Makes me want to fix a gin and tonic, perhaps with a little plate of spicy appetisers too.
