French Country Kitchen Lighting Accents

    An easy and affordable upgrade to your country kitchen is pendant lighting. We love how Grace Hill Design took a fresh new take on modern country chic. This design shows that any modern space can have a little farmhouse flair when you combine natural finished wood textures and a neutral color palette. We love the classic french brass elements found in these industrial pendant lamps. The wicker bar chairs also add a nice country element to an overall cool and modern kitchen space. To amp up your elegance in your country kitchen, we also recommend a chandelier option. Adding the chandeliers really integrates that authentic french design in your kitchen and adds more lighting and depth as well.

   Another cheap and easy way to turn your kitchen into a french country farmhouse is to get rid of all of your cabinet doors. Exposed cabinetry allows you to use your china and Moscow mule glasses as decor and not just for functional use. You have plenty of options with this choice, you could either replace the doors with glass, take the doors of your cabinets off completely or start fresh with floating shelves. Wooden floating shelves add a rustic element to your french country kitchen and you can elevate them by adding sconces beneath them.

   If you’re looking to stick to a modern farmhouse look for your kitchen, you can never go wrong with a white monochromatic color palette. For that french country flair, you can simply refurbish your wood kitchen cabinet finishes and paint them all white. Leave unfinished darker wood for tabletop accents on with your kitchen island for a modern french rustic element. You don’t just have to stop at your counters, if you have wood elements on your floor or window frame, paint those white too!

Copper Kitchen Appliances and Hardware

     If you’re not looking to go big or go home on your french country remodel, then this is the trick to try. Simply adding copper or brass pots, pans, plates, cabinet hardware or sinks can give your kitchen that elegant french country charm without emptying your wallet. Copper accents and retro appliances are highly recommended to give your kitchen that french country charm. Check out these awesome retro french appliances we found online! These elements are best exposed and will coordinate well with any color palette. These are also best integrated with basins, vases or other vintage decor items that you can convert into cutlery holders as well.  Don’t worry about having to pick up your delicate decor items, Dolly can pick up your bronze or brass kitchen appliances from any of your favorite retailers and bring home the same-day!  

Countryside Plants & Green Kitchen Decor

We love this take on the modern french country spectrum. The white wood finishes on the cabinets and the pop of contrasting forest green in this kitchen island gives the entire space an elegant french country touch. The metallic hood in this kitchen integrates well with the rustic french style sign hanging from an iron sconce. Little details like this simple organic color change, plant additions, and this hard metal can make an additional rustic touch to a kitchen. 

Inviting French Country Cushioned Kitchen Furnishing

     If you have a kitchen island, your seating can most definitely reflect the french country theme while still being comfortable. Cushioned stools or high chairs draped in linen are ideal choices for this concept. We love the accents with mini brass buttons and hoops on the backside; these details add a small bit of elegance to your furniture. Chairs like these are found everywhere, but if you have them already and just want a cleaner upgrade, we recommend doing some DIY in reupholstering

A Classy French Country Kitchen Color 

    Last but not least, if you’re looking to do a full-on french country remodel to your kitchen, you can never go wrong with the blue and white color scheme. We love a good blue cabinet and how it pairs elegantly with a crown molded hood. This look will work in any tone of blue, for a more royal and lush look we recommend going darker. For a more airy and elegant vibe, go lighter. Adding chandeliers or candelabras will really take this look next level. Whether you are doing a full kitchen remodel or just sprucing up a bit to add a bit of country flavor, this up and coming kitchen look is easy and elegant for every home. Every decor piece involved with this style is usually handmade and delicate.
