A Home In The South of France With a Lovely Black Kitchen

Black kitchens are on my mind after chatting to Desirée of Vosgesparis over the past few days (she's currently renovating a kitchen too so we had a lot to talk about!). We're in Transylvania for a few days on a blogger trip and today we're off to Dracula's castle! Mwah ha ha haaaa. Anyway, where was I? Ah yes, black kitchens. They are not for everyone but if you have the courage to go dark, you'll be rewarded with a dramatic space that makes a wonderful statement. This warm kitchen belongs to Camille - a deco coach, online shop owner and the blogger behind Cosy Home - her husband and two little boys, Jules and Noah. The family live in a pretty little village near Aix en Provence in the South of France and their home is full of vintage and artisanal pieces from the region, art, warm wood as well as lots of plants and dried flowers. I couldn't resist sneaking in a few pictures of their open-plan dining room and sitting room too (you'll totally see why!).

Such a lovely family space, don't you think? I'd be happy to hang out here over a fika or two, how about you?! 

You can see more of Camille's home on instagram and her blog

Tempted by a black kitchen? Try IKEA (made from recycled plastic bottles), Reform (one of my latest favourites) and VIPP.

Right, I'd better head off, I've got an important 'Count' to visit. I'm so glad I had all that garlic at the Italian restaurant last night! 

If you'd like to see a few pics from Transylvania they're all on my instagram stories right now - it's mesmerisingly beautiful here. Have you been to this part of the world?


PS I apologise for any spelling / grammar errors - I'm writing from the back of a very bumpy mini bus!

  1. This is gorgeous. However, I think part of the reason it looks so good is that there's a lot of natural light. I want that in a kitchen. Unfortunately I don't have it :(

    1. Natural light in a kitchen is always helpful - otherwise you need to be really smart with the colour and lighting choices. I'm sure you're kitchen is lovely all the same!

  2. Black kitchens are not common in the UK, I think personally with the dull weather and grey skies, a colourful kitchen works better. Also, black cabinets are hard work to keep clean. Owning a cleaning business I encounter all types of staf kitchens.

    1. Interesting point on the cleaning front. I do know that black sinks / baths (and dark colours in general) are a nightmare to keep looking clean!
