Black kitchen cravings

Right now I’ve got a black kitchen craving. I know it’s not the time to renovate our kitchen, but I still love looking at beautiful kitchens for inspiration.

I’m leaning towards a black kitchen, primarily because the rest of our home is very white. The kitchen is the first thing you see, when you enter our home, so I would love for it to stand out a bit. Make a bit of a statement, and that’s why I’m thinking dark colors. And it fits perfectly with my black kitchen cravings. I pin a lot of pictures of different kitchens, but I always get super excited, when I find a beautiful black/or dark grey kitchen.

Then when I found this black kitchen, I was pretty happy. It contains many of the elements, which I love. Take the tiles for example. We’ve got similar tiles on our kitchen – the only thing I really like about our current kitchen. And then there is the black kitchen cabinets. I would change the kitchen countertops with wood instead. In a few days, I’ll show you another black kitchen with a wooden countertop.

Interior details – raw meets clean and simple

Lately, I’m really inspired by tiny interior details, when it comes to decorating your home.

I’ve always loved walking around town and spotting different interior details in the homes I walk by. My husband and I used to do it a lot before we had kids (not in a nosy kind of way, of course). I’m sure we’ll do it again soon, because the kids are growing up, and in the not so distant future, we might get the chance to walk hand in hand down the street more often – just the two of us.

Until then, I’ll enjoy the times we do, and browse the internet for even more inspiration. Take this home for example, I know it’s been done before, and some of you might even be tired of it by now. But I love the raw brick walls in this home. What is more, I love what they’ve done with it.

The fact that the kitchen and other spots around the home are so clean and minimalistic makes for the perfect raw element.

I’m drawn to this home, because I find some very beautiful solutions, which corresponds with my own taste, but I also find corners of this home, where I’m left thinking: Why on earth did they do that? That’s what I love most about getting a glimpse of how other people live and decorate.

Reform your Ikea kitchen

A long time ago, I showed you how to spice up your Ikea kitchen with fronts from &Shufl.

Today, I want to show you another option, if you want to make your Ikea kitchen more personal. Reform, which is based in Copenhagen and founded by Jeppe Christensen and Michael Andersen in 2014, has made it possible to combine kitchen fronts and tabletops with Ikea’s popular modules. Reform Collage I love how it is now possible to custom make an Ikea kitchen. Reform designs kitchen fronts and tabletops, and with collaborations with internationally acclaimed Danish architects like BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, Henning Larsen Architects and Norm Architects, well it makes for some very interesting options, when creating your personal kitchen.

vipp kitchen

VippBlackKitchenSwartz031-754x1024 In my opinion the black vipp kitchen is the perfect kitchen. When I dream about a new kitchen (which is pretty much all the time) this is the one stuck in my mind. It is so simple and so clean cut and timeless, which is very important to me. Hopefully, one day my kitchen would look a little like this one.
