Guest Picks: Dining in the Dark

I usually steer straight for candy colors in regards to kitchen finishes and accessories, but lately I’m beginning to enjoy the sleek sophistication of black. Why do I suddenly need to toss everything out the window and move to a New York home made? I guess this urge wills satisfy. Here are my picks for ebony eye-pleasers perfect for any home. — Kristin in The Cuisinerd
