Black, White, or Both?

  B and I have been talking about our kitchen "re-do" since we bought this house almost 5 years ago.  It was the first room I wanted to tackle(who doesn't want a beautiful kitchen?) but keeps getting pushed down the list for things like....dead trees that need to be cut down, holes in the roof, new heating and air, you know...the "fun" stuff that comes with an older home. I'm sure over the course of 5 years, I have looked at 8,427  pictures of kitchens...and dreamed and drooled. I have loved a certain style, then marked it off my list, then loved it again. We have thought about paint vs. stain, keeping all the current cabinets or ripping some out, taking some of the doors off and making open shelving....you name it, we've talked about it. A few weeks ago B mentioned stain instead of paint. Then I threw in black instead of natural wood.  He came back with black paint instead of black stain. Then I  "pretty pleased" white paint..which is what I have always really want by the way. If we're going to go to all the trouble to paint, I would rather have light, bright and airy. I do LOVE the kitchens that have black AND white...but we don't have an island so I figured that was out. Until today....I was reading this blog....
                                    and came across this picture....

and I now have the perfect idea for my dream kitchen. 
Can you say L.O.V.E???
