Country Kitchen Ideas  October 4, 2013 – 03:18 pm

When I began this article about country kitchen ideas, I naively thought there was only one country. But the more I looked, the more I realized that there are so many "countries" out there: American, French, Spanish, Italian. Name any nation, and it's inevitably got a country style.

Above, you're looking at an example from Artistic Cabinetry, Smithtown, New York.

Perfect example of the French style kitchen: blue cabinets, hanging copper pans, rustic eating island, tile behind the sink. Even a rooster or two.

At Empire Napa, the food is the biggest secret  — Napa Valley Register
The decor, from designer Michael Brennan, and sophisticated ambiance scream “Big City,” and the place is filled with elegant young women in their finery with casually dressed dates, most drinking trendy cocktails and other sophisticated libations.

  • Avatar yohiness212 What kitchen themes and/or colors should I use?

    I'm trying to get ideas for my kitchen decor/theme. I think my colors are quite odd....I have laminate grayish co …ter. The living room is painted that same light pale yellow. (Living room furniture=tan and cherrywood furniture). I don't want to replace the countertops right now. I'm open to all suggestions...except country themes.

    • You can use the Rooster collection, or the cherry/apple collection -- the Rooster collection uses the shades gray to black with reds and yellows that seem would accent all ofyour colors. The apple motif will enhance the y …ake the kitchen a great place to congregate and colorful.

      I hope these ideas help. go to --kitchen and entertaining department and check out the Chanticleer plates -- these are the colors I am speaking of.

  • Avatar What would you think of setting animal traps for wall decor?
    Dec 01, 2010 by | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I want to put up my collection of spring traps ont he wall, open them up and hang them, I know it might be kinda dangerous but I think it will look cool, after all who would be stupid enough to actually touch them. My friends say it is white trash to do but I think it will add little old country charm to my place, think I should?

    • For me, it depends. First, it depends if they are clean. The first thing that popped into my head was "ewww". How many wild animals have been in contact with the trap? You don't want something dirty like that in …r and would be an interesting addition.

      Third, it depends on safety. They should be altered so that they could not harm (or kill) anybody. I am sure the last thing you need is a lawsuit for being negligent.

  • Avatar johnston1 What other Colour goes with light blue in a Kitchen?
    Jul 23, 2010 by johnston1 | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I love baby blue colour, so ive decided to have checked blue country curtains in my kitchen, what other Colour should go with this, the walls in particular, i though light lemon on the walls is very country--im looking for 50's style scheme, any ideas what goes with blue. the only drawback is i have really dark worktops and beige cupboards.

    • Ohhh...chocolate brown goes SO nice with light blue. It also darkens it a little and makes it more dramatic.

  • Avatar matchmadeinheaven8186 I am helping my grandma redo her kitchen and dining room in sunflowers and roosters. We need ideas?
    Jun 06, 2008 by matchmadeinheaven8186 | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    Her walls and cabinets need painted. Her counter tops are blue. If anyone has any ideas on colors or any decor tips pls help. thanks

    • I think these are two themes and using both will be overwhelming. Because of the blue countertops, I vote you go for the rooster theme because you can buy wonderful ceramic roosters with a variety of beautiful colors used …ke a lot of items on my countertops but you could do a basket of fake eggs (if you can find them). One of the items I have on the top of my kitchen cabinets is an old basket my parents used 50 years ago to gather eggs in!
