Why we love this pic: There's nothing quite like finding the perfect interior balance between light and dark, and this inviting kitchen has it in spades. From the gorgeous white-and-black pendant lights to the dark kitchen island balanced with the white-washed cabinetry, this stunning space demonstrates just how to rock contrasts in sophisticated style.
The takeaway: Play with light and dark contrasts to add depth and balance to a design.
