A fittingly crypt-like kitchen kicks off KBCULTURE's traditional week of Halloween-themed posts. With cinder-grey walls and cabinets of coal black, this moody space is better suited for a seance than a family gathering [save the Addams family!]. Even the sink contributes to the dark mood: Crudely carved of stone, I can imagine the shallow basin might once have done duty in a gothic-era morgue.
