We can't be the only ones letting out a big, satisfied exhale after taking in this gorgeous space designed by Katy Thomas of The Eye Spy Milk Bar. Opting for all-white cabinets sans hardware gives the room a light feel, and allows the thoughtful black details to work their magic. And by magic, we mean magic — because the inky hue packs such a bold punch, it doesn't need much to make a big statement. The subtle touch of black grout rather than traditional white highlights the compelling shape of the honeycomb tiles, while a black faucet and matching pendant light give the contemporary color story an effortlessly cool aesthetic. Topping this stylish kitchen off is a grey-and-white striped rug, which just so happens to be a perfect blend of the palette's two opposing hues. It's quite a compelling look, even without color.
