Here's an example of white cabinets with contrasting black hardware. Cabinets do not meet the ceiling and top cabinet molding varies greatly. I can live with most of this kitchen but not the constant horizontal shifts in cabinet heights.
[RS: I'm not sure how I feel about cabinets not going to ceiling height. It seems to me that you wind up with awkward spaces. This feels really awkward; it's somewhat less so in the kitchen you show above. I'm just not certain which way I would want to go.]
