With the Fourth of July right around the corner, what’s a better way to celebrate than with a kitchen inspired by the land of the free and the home of the brave? Country kitchens are a specific branch of the traditional style. Rather than the typical European influence you find in traditional designs, they’re influenced by vintage America. The key to creating a successful country kitchen is to make the space feel comfortable and natural; you want it to feel homey and lived-in, not perfectly pristine.
The pins featured above are beautiful examples of how to effectively create a country kitchen. Each design looks styled but also lived-in. Most of the color palettes stick to the primary colors, red, yellow and blue, which creates a simple but familiar feeling.
I really love fireclay front apron sinks, neutral colors and foliage incorporated into country designs. These elements evoke warmth and comfort in one of the busiest rooms in your home. Finding antiques and retro accent pieces also adds a touch of personality to the design, such as the “cherries” sign above one of the featured designs.
