interior inspiration : (a little bit) country kitchens.













I really never thought I would like anything to do with "country" when it comes to interior design. All that ever popped into my mind were images of chickens and checkers and hideous florals. But now that I have spent a massive amount of time flipping through every kind of interior there is, I have found that there is a sweet, rustic country look that I am enamored with. For me, this look is especially perfect when it comes to kitchens, I suppose since that is usually where I let out my country ways (bread baking, apron-wearing, fresh egg-cracking, etc.) I have fallen deeply in love with huge farm tables, hanging rustic pots and pans, vintage country linens, and jars/pots of flowers displayed all over the place.

  3. I normally hate 'country' design but these are so lovely, make me desperately want an aga and a spaniel or four.

  4. Lovely. I love them all! I daydream frequently about a big, bright, airy kitchen with lime-washed woods, copper and cast iron pots hanging from the ceiling, and bright-colored ceramics lined up on shelves.

  6. Rustic, sweet country is my kind of country too. Feels like European country in some way to me, too.

  8. This is the kind of "country" I like as well but it gets a bad rep because of the cheesiness it evokes in a lot of people's mind when they hear the word. I think the photos you chose are beautiful. My fave is the kitchen with the blue cabinetry.
