As we are all spending more time at home, it’s the perfect time to add a little Paris into your kitchen.
A French kitchen style is a beautifully decorated cooking space that feels both homey and elegant. Think kitchen cabinetry that resembles traditional furniture, fancy oven hoods with crown molding or scalloped edges, and charming rustic accents that feel more Parisian shabby chic than rural.
A French country kitchen style may include ceramic roosters, collectible plates, and toile curtains, these days spaces like these have swapped out purely decorative items for modern features packed with plenty of practical functions such as vintage-inspired task lighting.
For example, a french styled range hood makes a chic statement and its contrasting color scheme avoids the monotony that comes with single-hued kitchens by pairing crisp white cabinetry with a sage kitchen island and coordinating tile backsplash.
A stone wall adds old-world character to the kitchen and combined with wood cabinets it makes a great kitchen decor.
A mix of materials and colors create a layered European look. Yellow stone tiles on the wall are suggestive of a rural French country cottage. Decorative molding introduces a layer of elegance to the traditional kitchen cabinets. The furniture-like detailing on the muted green kitchen island adds warmth and comfort. Above it is French scroll lighting made of wrought iron. The dark metal has a slight rustic rust finish !
Elegant lighting is an essential French country style ingredient , so consider a shabby chic chandelier !
