Note the organized groupings of the various contents around the cooking area, and especially in and on top of the dresser around the window. As the French Country kitchen is rather busy, it is important to keep it organised.

The two cockerels, framed pictures, bird cages, old keys, dried herbs and bunch of bright yellow sunflowers complete the final touches which is typical of French Country Kitchen decor.

In these images we can see how beautifully old and new free standing units rub shoulders in this modern kitchen. The solid wooden beams overhead help to add ambience and pull everything together.

If looking for a good source and reference book I can recommend 'French Country Kitchens' by Linda Dannenberg. Whether you are a true Francophile or just wanting a little authentic French Country inspiration, this book will walk you through true French kitchens from various regions in France. What I like about the book is that you will find the thought process behind the designs, with an in depth study of the style elements, including color palettes and collectibles to help give you ideas on how to turn your own kitchen into a warm and functional space in the spirit of French Country. A nice personal touch is a French recipe from the owner of each kitchen featured.
