What Houzz contributors are saying:
Emerald. While emeralds in nature can range from light to dark, it’s the deep-hued emerald that seems to be really turning heads of late. This Los Angeles kitchen by Black Lacquer Design features cabinets painted in Benjamin Moore’s Chrome Green.
5. Black marble countertops. Interior designer and Houzz writer Yanic Simard showed us the versatile beauty of black marble with all the ways it can be used to bring drama and elegance throughout a home. One highlight: countertops. “A dark stone counter makes an excellent pairing with a deep cabinet color,” he writes. “You can break up the darkness with a light backsplash and some shimmering metallic accents. Nobody will want to eat in the dining room again.” See more reasons to love black marble
5. Counters. Who says kitchens have to be white on white? A dark stone counter makes an excellent pairing with a deep cabinet color. You can break up the darkness with a light backsplash and some shimmering metallic accents. Nobody will want to eat in the dining room again.
Likewise, a table that’s in the kitchen or in its own nook will look fabulous with stylish metallic dining chairs featuring a different and warmer metallic hue. You can also mix in a different colored metal or brightly colored upholstery for those bar stools or chairs.
