A cool modern kitchen

I had to share this cool, modern kitchen with you all because black kitchens are a favourite of mine. I do have to say that black countertops suck, as my mom always bitches about hers, and my new house has black and I am quickly learning what a pain it is to keep streak-free. And helloooo herringbone floors that would have been so much more amazing with a light grey wash instead of yellow stain. But otherwise, a totally fab and fun kitchen by Camille Hermand Architectures (Jo blogged another one of their kitchens here). Here are some details: A family of four, with a new baby on the way, live in this large apartment in the chic 7th quarter of Paris. They wanted to the maximise space in their busy family kitchen, by fusing the existing kitchen with the adjoining dining room. To the left, the Zimbabwe black granite work surface runs parallel to the wall of full-length fitted cupboards to the right. The cupboards running under the work surface, which are made-to-measure and hand-painted in mat black emulsion, camouflage discretely the oven and hob. The remaining kitchen appliances are neatly out of sight in the full length cupboards to the right of the room. Running along the wall over the black granite work surface is cement Azulej tiling. In the centre of the full length cupboards is the breakfast hub, with plenty of space for all the necessary breakfast appliances. The back wall of the hub is covered with colourful and graphic wallpaper by Minakani Lab.
