Trend Watch: Little Black Kitchen - May2016

Just like the LBD is a must-have in every woman’s closet, did you know that black is also dressing up the kitchen? After years of being blinded by the all-white kitchen, we are seeing a real emergence of this go-to colour. And this isn’t only for lovers of all things goth (unless you want that!), black pairs well with white, wood and stainless steel. Whether you use it as a major feature like the backdrop on your walls, the cabinets and appliances, or in smaller doses like kitchen accessories, no other colour adds instant drama and modernizes a space like black.
