Country Kitchen....


Well, this is a bit of jolt from my last post, isn't it?

From the sublime to the ridiculous size-wise. I thought I needed a bit more Keeping-It-Real. Can you believe the last kitchen I showed was from their holiday home? It was enooooooooooormous.

I chose this image to illustrate the softer side of Modern Country Style. Do you like it?
Isn't this lovely? It's very English Cottage, don't you think? I can just imagine the roses around the front door...

The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball Mouse's Back, which is a gorgeous smoky taupe - . It's the colour scheme that gives the room a deliciously Modern edge.

This is definitely another Modern Country Kitchen for my 9 out of 10 category. Remember, no inspiration pictures allowed unless you'd give them 9 out of 10 or above.

So, Step 1 of Making over your Kitchen, is definitely choosing images that make you happy.

At this point in my kitchen-foraging, I try not to analyse what I'm drooling over, I just go with what I ♥ love ♥.

Come back on Monday for Step 2 where I'll be sharing how I narrow down my choices.....

A hard task but someone's got to do it.

Sweet, cosy, perhaps a tiny bit dark? Cottages often do lack light filled rooms, though, and this kitchen is really inviting.

Oh yes, I like this one. Love the wooden worktops. V. cosy.

Morning sunshine!

Don't you just love this one?! I sure do. A little English Country never hurt anyone. It looks so welcoming and cozy. I can imagine it looking out into an English Garden, as well. I'll have to bookmark all your kitchen pics so I can pick out the things I like about each one. I love the warmth of this one but I also like a little industrial modern feel mixed in.

Have a lovely day, girlfriend!

Love this!

lisaroyhandbags said...

I love this look! It's reminiscent of the kitchen we had in our 1850 stone home - wooden countertops, wood shelves on the walls, rustic painted cabinets, same paint colour. I loved that kitchen!! :)
Thanks for your lovely comments on my kitchen reno! xo

YES, SARAH, YES!

I'm so charmed by cottage and warmth and live-ability. Amazing how one sheer image can set the wheels in motion.

Good stuff.

Hi Sarah,
That kitchen is darling! And it is about the size of mine. A Very realistic image, I would say. And I love English cottage. Btw, how do you make the hearts in your post? Do tell. Thanks.

I adore the wall color in this kitchen. I'm trying to find just the right shade, and this is pretty darn close to what I want.

LambAround said...

Every time I visit your blog, I know I'm in for a treat in the form of a beautiful photo (or many beautiful photos!)

I'm stopping by to say CONGRATULATIONS! You've been nominated for a Best in Show award on my blog again! Good luck :)

Lee said...

Hey Sarah- I have been collecting pictures of kitchens for the psat year... we were supposed to gut ours when we moved. Didn't happen... but a girl can dream. PS- I LOVE the pat few posts, esp. the urban/industrial houses. OMG. DROOL. I don't think I can even afford one single chair. SIGH...

Erin said...

Your hard work is much appreciated, Sarah! ;) Love, love, love this kitchen and can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve come Monday!

Jenni said...

What a beautiful picture! That is a picture perfect, absolutely gorgeous kitchen. I love the cabinet hardware, and the wood counters! :) I really tried to talk my husband into wood counter tops, because aren't darker wood + white cabinets dreamy? Oh, well...

How have you been doing? I hope you are doing well, and having a good weekend!

Blessings,
Jenni

Ooh I do love that kitchen. Isn't it fun to look for kitchens that
inspire?

Miranda said...

Sarah, I love this kitchen even more than the last one. The cozy country feeling is much more "me". I love the countertops of dark wood. Stunning!
