eclectic entry by Hugh Jefferson Randolph Architects
Absolute Black with painted cabinets. This is my idea of a classic kitchen. I love this traditional look of white cabinets and Absolute Black granite, which looks great polished or honed. Painted cabinets in many colors pair perfectly with this granite, and nickel, chrome or oil-rubbed-bronze fixtures and hardware look terrific.
The unifying theme here is the use of black in the utilitarian pieces. The balance is almost perfect.
