I wonder if what holds true in fashion holds true for kitchens?  I wonder... (I know...most of you who read regularly are she goes again...but this is coy and mysterious I'm not wondering out loud too much...)

For example, in fashion, if you should happen to have a larger bottom than top (not necessarily saying that is the case with moi, I'm just speaking hypothetically...sort of...kind of...), wearing darker colors on the bottom (pants, skirts) makes one look skinnier on that part of the body.

Do kitchens look less fat with dark lower cabinets? Do kitchens ever say "does my bottom half look big today?" for thought...?  (These are the times my mother wonders I'm sure..."Why did I pay thousands of dollars for Coco's education?  What happened here?  Why is she pretending a kitchen can speak or cares about what it looks like on the bottom?  What went wrong here? Why can't she pose some truly thoughtful important questions.?"  Sorry mom...LOL)

In all seriousness, or in semi seriousness, I like a two toned kitchen. Dark lower cabinets and light or no upper cabinets. Makes even the most traditional kitchens look a little more modern I think.

So in today's THIS OR THAT I ask, which of these kitchens looks best?

Dark brown wood lower cabinets do the skinny kitchen look trick too! :-) (above)
So do you like this kitchen look dear readers - dark bottom/light top?  If so, which do you like best?  If not, which do you dislike least?  This one, that one, that one or that?  I l like the first the the high gloss almost black lacquer lower cabinets!  Which is your favorite?

Happy Friday!


P.S. It is Oscar weekend! Are you planning on watching the Academy Awards? I'm not necessarily planning to watch and I live in L.A.!  We'll see...peer pressure might get to me on this one.
