I had simple inexpensive cabinets put in and then painted hi gloss black, Carrera marble counters, and currently working on wallpaper throughout. I've wanted to try black cabinets forever. One thing I learned is that it's hard to find a true black cabinet, most come in a dark grey or very dark brown. I had to have mine painted, so the black appliances would match. I also just like the look of painted cabinets over foil wrapped.
The wallpaper is from Spoonflower in Tropicali Afternoon by Domesticate. I love bringing the outdoors in, especially in a petite kitchen with no windows. And this wallpaper is just beautiful!
Also, if you live in the DC metro area Legacy Home Improvement Consultants are amazing. They did a fabulous job on my bathroom and kitchen renovation and were/are a delight to work with. Here's a contact number if you're interested:
