Kitchens With Beautiful Black Details

Black in your kitchen can be a spectacular design choice that works surprisingly well. Black kitchens are often sleek and modern, and since black goes with almost every colour it’s a perfect choice for people who like bold spaces that can be changed up easily. My dream kitchen is a black one, and I plan on accenting it with lots of natural wood, copper and silver, and marble touches. If you think black kitchens might be your thing, have a look at the ones below!

House Tour: Turtle Lake Residence by Joseph Mosey Architecture - This minimal home in Detroit is definitely worth a second glance.

Joseph Mosey Architecture did an incredible job on this traditional Detroit home. The minimal black and white colour scheme is elegant, the furnishings are unique yet simple, and the millwork is absolutely stunning. Every detail of this home is carefully planned out – from the large and open windows to the beautiful light fixtures in each room. Completed in 2011, this design is evergreen and definitely worth a look.Read More »

There is a fine line between ‘contemporary cool’ and ‘new but really weird’. The images below are of that first category: modern houses that come together really well to highlight all of the best things about contemporary architecture.

Maybe it comes from living so close to Hobbiton, but there’s just something so charming and nostalgic about a tiny little cottage with enough space for a bed and a bookshelf. Here are some gorgeous little cottages that send me back into fairytales!
