French Country Kitchens

French Country Kitchens

French Country Kitchens are warm and gentle kitchens that give you the feeling of having someone wrapping their arms around you.  I found the first French Country kitchen featured on Houzz and one of the questions readers wanted to know about was the chandelier.  The chandelier is an antique and so it can’t be purchased at any specific place.

There is a creamy yellow on the cabinets, and dabs of deep red and muted blue that accent this kitchen perfectly for the french country kitchen feel that I love, most especially the chandelier that I think puts a subtle explanation point into the room, as red commands attention and is a bold statement color.  Without the red there would be no drama in this room.  This french country kitchen is also popular for the colored kitchen cabinets.  A newer trend in kitchens cabinets, white or wood, is adding a contrasting colored island.

French country kitchens often have  ruffled chair seat covers.  Here they blend in with their environment beautifully and don’t detract from the flooring and cabinets.  Simply lovely.

A distressed french country look on these cabinets make them a popular choice.  Per the builder, the cabinets are from woodlandfurniture.com if you just gotta have em and want to order them.  I like the accessories of the plates and potted plants, and then the oversized lantern (arch top lantern) above the island that says “look at me.”

Just so inviting.  A French Country kitchen like this says Welcome.  More often than not a french country kitchen will feature a rooster and this one has two of them standing at attention.  As for the apron sink, they are in many different kinds of kitchen styles these days.  The under cabinet lighting and inside cabinet lighting give the kitchen an even warmer glow.  The blue counters mixed with the creamy yellow cabinets are color combinations often used for french country.

It’s a mustard yellow paint color on these french kitchen cabinets. This kitchen is old world french country elegance.  I especially like the round window above the oven and the mix of painted cabinets and wood cabinets.  This kitchen was designed with the countryside of France in mind, per the designer.  I confess that old world style anything is one of my favorites.
