French country kitchen decor is one of those trends that will never completely leave us no matter how much time passes. The classically elegant style pairs so well with a wide variety of interior designs and architectural themes. Whether you have a lavish estate home or a simple country cottage, elements of this decor style are the perfect accent to elevate the overall look of the home. You can take a more rustic turn with a ton of rich exposed wood and casual storage elements, or translate the theme into a more upscale look with richly paneled cabinetry accented by farmhouse wall decor. This lovely house is a great example of a kitchen that strikes a balance between these two approaches.
Scouting for country decorating ideas made me learn to balance fresh air, soft lights and space for my dining room design. My colors were simple but used rich tones of chocolate, ivory, pearl, beige and light olive. A large, u-shaped, marble-topped table occupied much of the room, but I balanced the heaviness with light, modern, multipurpose, cushioned metallic chairs that captured the elegant charm and character of French country decor. I opted for practical glass shelf doors and steel furniture as well as appliances that reflected lights and colours over wooden flooring, offset by tall, dark, wooden cabinets.
I have been browsing the internet in hope to find some inspirational country kitchen ideas since I am planning to renovate my home. It didn’t take long until I saw a photo with amazing farmhouse kitchen decor. Identically to what I was looking for, this kitchen breathes a homely, yet sophisticated atmosphere. The elements are made of hard wood with fine, classic lines that always have the tendency to make me appreciate the craftsmanship even more. This country kitchen decor combines warm colors of the walls, flooring, and furniture and finishes with a glamorous chandelier above the kitchen table. The only modern-looking appliance in this kitchen is the stove that differentiates in color and design.
Remodeling is a hobby that I enjoy. It is something about rearranging different elements to become something that is easy on the eyes. I saw this beautiful picture of this French country kitchen that has now inspired me for a new project for my home. The antique artifacts on the wall remind me of how precious the little things can bring a sense of essence and distinction to a room. These beautiful country kitchen ideas gave me so many creative plans, especially when I saw the fire place that was right in the middle of the design. I would love to get creative and figure out a way to cook my cornbread in my cast-iron skillet.
When we were purchasing our newest vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I knew that I wanted a property that would make us feel completely immersed in the landscape and one that featured primitive country decor so different from our downtown property. This gorgeous home did just that. My favorite room in the house is this fabulous kitchen filled to the brim with exposed brick and gorgeous varnished pine. This country style kitchen makes you feel as though you stepped back into time in the days when you had to hunt and forage for your own food then prepare it over a roaring hearth. I love how the designer managed to combine every modern amenity a home chef would need (and more!) along classic elements found in period kitchens from hundreds of years ago.
When you think rustic kitchen decor you do not often picture it housed within an edgy contemporary design, but this home offers just that. Our client asked us to design a space that was in keeping with the surrounding landscape of their sprawling Montana ranch, but that still felt modern and even industrial. At first this seemed like an impossible and unnatural task, but the more we immersed ourselves in the design, the more I grew to absolutely love the idea. We swapped your traditional country kitchen cabinets with a more stylistically neutral shaker variety. Carrying this theme, we decided to take your classic rustic kitchen decor features like exposed wood beams and heavily paneled cabinetry and completely turned it around.
