When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.
This light and bright kitchen features modern stainless steel appliances and white wooden cabinets paired with country accents, like a farmhouse sink and natural wood plank ceiling. Two glass pendant lights hang above a granite top kitchen island, while wooden stools provide a spot for casual dining.
This elegant French country kitchen features a small island with shelf storage and a marble countertop. Above it hangs a chandelier complementing the neutral subway tile backsplash. White cabinets create contrast against the dark hardwood floors.
Multiple patterned pillows dress the wood banquette with lively color around a glass-topped coffee table. White cabinets with an antique finish surround a stunning, colorful range backsplash in this bright kitchen.
Ceiling beams made from reclaimed wood and a stone-framed door hint at French chateau style. An island with over-sized turned legs visually grounds the large room while cobblestone framing around the door add a classic cottage-style touch to the space.
This French country-style kitchen features all the amenities a chef needs to whip up a culinary masterpiece: a double oven, an expansive gas stovetop, multiple sinks, a wall-mounted pot filler and a hanging pot rack filled with copper pots and pans within reach.
The stove wall has multiple focal points including the blue La Cornue stove, a reclaimed tin hood, two curio cabinets and a 2 ¼’’ thick concrete counter top with a silver gray finish to match the hood.
This French country kitchen features an open floor plan, allowing for easy transition between the living areas. Stainless steel appliances are paired with white cabinets and marble countertops for an updated look, while a red tablecloth adds a festive touch to the dining table. A wood paneled ceiling gives the space a natural look.
The farmhouse-inspired kitchen has a large irregular-shaped island with barstool seating at one end. Rustic stone, the same used on the house's exterior, creates a beautiful focal wall around the wood-fire oven.
A gray stone wall stands out against the kitchen's beige and red toile wallpaper to create a quaint dining space. The elaborate range area with furniture-style ivory cabinets transitions into a more simple dining area with a small table and petite chandelier.
