Ingredients You’ll need:
Picture yourself making a savory ratatouille or melt-in-your-mouth andouille and potato crepe in your elegant and warm French Country Kitchen. Oo la la! (A French friend of mine actually says this sometimes!) Sounds like a daydream, right? Ok, maybe French cuisine is beyond your culinary skills. But a French Country style kitchen is certainly within reach.
Creating this style is quite simple. As long as your kitchen is not uber modern, and has a little bit of crown molding and trim work here and there, you will most likely be able to achieve the French Country look. The key is to make everything appear effortlessly elegant; usable and warm; both casual and classy. The French Country kitchen looks like a beautiful but comfortable working kitchen that actually gets used.
Weathered or antiqued furniture and accessories. Neutrals abound in the casework, counters, backsplash and floor. A serene green accent color on the island. Unique and complimentary accessories grouped together for visual interest. Simple wall décor on blank face panels. Pendant lights add a dominant accent to the space.
