In my own kitchen I have a a black painted wall with white kitchen cabinets and appliances all in one. On a small wall I have an industrial table with some black and white tiles on it. Where I keep my daily things, like bowls for breakfast, glasses and coffee cups. I also have some tajini's on it and my favorite kubis candle holder from Mogens Lassen.
Before my kitchen renovation |see here and here| I had a small wall where I made a coffee corner with open shelves above it. I kinda like an informal corner in a kitchen where you can add some personal favorites to look at.
