Could it be? A Country Revival?


French country kitchen here.  Don't you admire the portraits?  Can't you here the discussion, "Margaux and Louis were relegated to the kitchen.  Wonder what that means?  Wonder why they didn't make it to the dining room?"  Maybe they were the French ancestors.  Another way to dress up the utilitarian space-the crystal chandelier.  Why not?  Life is short.  Enjoy.  Use the "good stuff".  

  


Look.  Another chandelier in the kitchen.  Notice the outdoor cafe chairs--a French picnic in an farmhouse kitchen?

What am I seeing?  A revival of the "warm and cozy" kitchen?  It certainly looks that way.  What do you say?  Take it or leave it?  Are we over the crisp clean utilitarian look?

  1. I HOPE we are over the clean utilitarian look! I prefer a kitchen where the odd chicken or two running around doesn't look out of place (as in the 'Good Life')!

  5. I love warm and cozy but those are a little too country for me. I have an obsession with white kitchens...not too utilitarian but clean.

  6. Love the warm Country Kitchens. The second one is my very favorite but I love them all. The bottom kitchen has a separate little table for two in the eating area that is so lovely for intimate dining, love that.
