One reader RSVP'd to the magazine and described the kitchen as dark and "soulless". Mr. CottageModern disagrees, and says that the moody and masculine feeling is appealing and unique. I love a good dose of black, and think that every room can benefit from a few shots of it here or there, but this seems overwhelming. Am I missing out on a huge trend and overlooking the 'next best thing' in kitchen color schemes?
