An Unfussy, Romantic Kitchen in Upstate New York

This black kitchen was "controversial," according to designers Tara Mangini and Percy Bright of design firm Jersey Ice Cream Co. As they recently told Design*Sponge, the two were contracted to design and renovate an 1860 home in upstate New York, and for the kitchen they wanted to create a look that was "bold and classic." Thankfully, the home owner went for it  — so at least that wasn't the source of the controversy! The result? "It's unfussy and romantic and feels very true to the house."

The black paint is "Black Horizon" by Benjamin Moore, while the walls above are plastered. The vintage basin sink was salvaged from an old flower shot, while the butcher block countertops are (you guessed it!) from IKEA.

I love it. What do you think?
