Bronte house, and my dream kitchen

Dear gawd this kitchen is IT! It makes me want to take a sledgehammer to mine. Black and brass is so sexy in any application, but in a kitchen it is such a hot combination. Especially because the designer Pip Norris was smart enough not to use black countertops. I have been living a year and a half with some type of granite/quartz black stuff and it is a freaking nightmare to keep clean. These cabinets though - WOW. And the antique finish of the faucet and bathroom fixtures is incredible. The stuff that dreams are made of. (Photos: Tom Ferguson)

Moody Brazilian

The palette is restrained, black, neutrals, wood tones except for the flashes of yellow and gold. Spaces within the open plan room are defined by ceiling heights and furniture groupings while layers of texture prevent the whole from being sterile. Moody, masculine, urban, polished, Brazilian. Itacolomi Apartment 445 by São Paulo-based architect Diego Revollo.

Raw

A raw and edgy addition to an Art Deco home sees function contained within the exposed structure of the form. A limited palette of blacks, greys and blonde wood with exposed concrete, rendered walls and untreated plywood give a Scandinavian meets modern Australian feel. Lees House by Melbourne-based Rob Kennon Architects.

Pix Pintxos

Perhaps an all-black home is too much.....but for a bar it is a totally rad colour choice. This tapas bar in London was designed by Duck & Shed. Dark and moody and with accents of deep red it is slightly goth and totally HOT.

All black

I find dark spaces so intriguing, especially while white Scandinavian spaces seem to have been all the rage as of late. Nothing against white, I am just a bit tired of it. I have not regretted painting my living room dark grey (Farrow & Ball's Down Pipe) and I have plans to darken other spaces around my house. As soon as I get some breakfast in me today, I will be working on painting my bedroom a dark-ish colour - Farrow & Ball's Mouse's Back. The 100 m2 apartment of designer Sylvester Kotsolek in Berlin from Architectural Digest Russia caught me eye - because the entire space is black! This is so moody and gorgeous. Kudos to Sylvester for having the guts to go black.
