Black Kitchen Cabinets Paint Color Ideas
Benjamin Moore Onyx 2133-10 or Cheating Heart 1617

A Soft Black from Farrow & Ball: Off-Black No. 57
One of the original Farrow & Ball colors, Off-Black is an uncomplicated name for a well loved classic. Off-Black is much more flattering to adjacent colors than stronger blacks because it feels so much milder in tone and has less of the underlying cool blue of Railings or Black Blue.

Black need not be reserved for high contrast kitchens only. Case in point? This moody dark kitchen where the color is continued on the walls:

Down Pipe No. 26 – Farrow & Ball’s Dramatic Lead Gray
Down Pipe has definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the color of downpipes and gutters. This daringly dark hue is fabulous as a background to art, and extremely effective for use in halls to create a deeply dramatic entrance to the home.
For a sample, buy Down Pipe HERE.
If the lighter paint color above caught your eye, it’s Lamp Room Gray No. 88 by Farrow & Ball.
I stumbled on this video since the idea of living in a 130 s.f. home intrigued me. (It was interesting to learn too that this Korean apartment rents for $450 month yet comes with a security deposit of more than $8k!)
Maybe it will make your own home suddenly feel palatial!
