For an automatic warm, country feel, use beadboard (or tongue-and-groove) facings on vertical surfaces. Ideas for beadboard placement include cabinet doors, kitchen island walls, or even the backsplash. They don’t have to steal the show, but iron details (think cast iron or wrought iron touches) in a French country kitchen are a must. Iron appears to be used on much of the lighting here (the pendant lanterns and lighting flanking the kitchen sink), and it finishes off the whole look.
Although the French country kitchen has few contemporary tendencies, as far as décor goes, there are still some subtle ways to introduce a more modern feel. For example, using darker woods or painted surfaces on, say, the island combines with the lighter surfaces of the rest of the kitchen in a more modern aesthetic.
Apart from an open floor plan which contains the kitchen, living and dining area, a different way of connecting these spaces while also ensuring that they each have their own privacy and individual character can be created with the help of a high ceiling. In such a case, these spaces can be defined by wall dividers which instead of going all the way up to the ceiling leave the top section open.
