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.
Use as much open storage as possible in your design. Even if your cabinets have window glass, you’ll get to peek at all the pieces you’ve chosen inside – which hopefully – coincide with the style genre. Stripes are another help in creating interest and personality inside your retro kitchen. Pay attention to the linens when adding your stripes, as it’s a great way to mix and match.
French country kitchens play upon the history of families gathering around the fireplace by designing stoves and/or other cooking spaces that are reminiscent of fireplaces. This is accomplished in a variety of ways, including the use of brick or stone around the stove, an archway, or decorative hood, for example. Unique, decorative hoods abound in the décor and design of a French country kitchen. And even if they didn’t you could not ever go wrong with a gorgeous copper number like this one.
