A dark palette is anything but boring when a black and white tiles and a mix of patterns are involved.
I am drawn to darker rooms these days; must be the bright springtime sun. Although I’m not brave enough to do this in my home, I find the mix of patterns and limited color palette intriguing. But black and white tiles in the floor of this kitchen sets the theme and make it all work. The upper cabinet and open shelves are painted flat gray against a black wall. The rest of the kitchen is painted a bright white, creating a dramatic niche. A mix of two patterned black and white tiles are sprinkled with a third design on the floor, with what appears to have a touch of grey and yellow.
Space is fully utilized by extending the countertop right to the window. Because the sink wall is skirted in classic gingham, there are no cabinets to interfere. The skirt is practically a no-sew project, only requiring a rod pocket for the tension rod. This set up, with a small sink, does allow precious space to be utilized to its fullest. The distressed wood counter helped make the solution flexible.
