Classically Clean: A Black & White Kitchen Masterpiece

Trends come and go, but the classic combo of a black and white kitchen has never gone out of style and we don’t anticipate that changing anytime soon. This classic duo of colors can easily work in any corner of your home, but we’re partial to it looking especially great paired together in a kitchen.

Utilizing Mouser Custom Cabinetry, homeowner Amy (who has an incredible eye for design herself!) and E.W. dream team designer Monica first selected a distressed raised panel door for the island, which was painted in a rich ebony color. All elements of the island, including the distressing, deep paint color and leathered granite countertop contrast beautifully with the perimeter of the kitchen, which was intentionally kept lighter and more clean looking. This area highlights a shaker style maple door painted in Divinity, a light quartz countertop with a medium sized subway tile backsplash. Opting for a dark grout against the white tiles really enhance the classically stark contrast between the black and white colors.

The addition of wood elements in the custom made reclaimed barnwood range hood and open shelving not only give the eye some breathing room between the white cabinetry and white shiplap ceiling, but also juxtapose the rustic feel of the distressed island nicely. On the other side of this kitchen, we also designed a coffee and beverage station, complete with the state of the art Miele coffee system and mini fridge for these beer lovers. You’ll see here in the beverage center our homeowner opted for an arabesque style backsplash similar in colors to the white subway tile throughout the rest of the kitchen. We like her style!

The rustic basement bar was created using Yorktowne Cabinetry and custom reclaimed barnwood shelving with industrial piping from the Barndoor Lumber company. To complete the renovation, the Barndoor Lumber company also custom designed the power room vanity. We are loving the contrast of wood against the deep navy walls and accent tile floor covering. The final pieces of this home renovation is the Yorktowne master bath, which was custom designed in a deep Sherwin Williams navy. The contrasting white quartz countertop and herringbone floor coverings make this nautical inspired space truly divine!
