The colours of a French Country Kitchen...

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a French Country home. This is where everyone gets together, so it has a distinct ‘lived-in’ feel to it. You can create this effect easily by miss-matching furniture and having an odd piece here and there, this way you get that special quaint charm. Our favorite way to do this is to use free-standing furniture pieces. It also helps if you have pieces handed down from previous generations or a treasured antique or two. Reinvent your furniture by giving it another use. You can use a small dining-room table as a work space or you can display your linen or crockery in a bookshelf. Make it a charming focal point. The whole idea is not to match items but to place miss-matched items together.
