Style Series No. 3 - Cottage, Country, Shabby Chic, and Glam Kitchen Style

June was a big ol' whirlwind, so I didn't get around to posting a monthly style series, BUT better late than never...I do so enjoy doing the Style Series...hope you like it too!  This month we have oodles of kitchen inspiration including, Country Cottage, Farmhouse, and Chic and Fancy.  I just finished a mini makeover of my kitchen, go HERE to see if you haven't already.  Let's get the show on the road, shall we?

Country Cottage

{Full of whimsy, this is my blog design masquerading as a kitchen, no?}

{I am a big fan of the Yvestown kitchen}

{Look how all these patterns work together magically}

{love all the quirky details in here}

{just goes to show all you need sometimes is cottage and vintage accessories...no need to remodel}

{So sweet}

{nothing better than a Farmhouse Sink in a kitchen}

{The hanky curtains are the star of the show here}


Farmhouse

{American country farm goodness}

{Pretty Farmhouse perfect}

{Simple country style}

{Love these counter tops and cabinets}

{Just the dining area here, but it's so lovely, just had to share.  Check out those glass pendant lights!}

{such a pretty cornflower blue hue in here}


Chic & Fancy

{The fanciest of them all}

{French Country Fancy}

{Rustic meets Fancy}

{Glamorous Fancy}

{Very chic and fancy}

{Last, but not least, my friend Michele's kitchen, from Hello Lovely Inc.,
Lovely indeed}

These are all gorgeous kitchens! I tend to like the more simple farmhouse style but I think I would take any one of these!

Kitchen Cabinets Toronto is new and fresh styles can influence the general atmosphere in the kitchen. Open the cabinet door or the kitchen cabinets are the styles that are becoming very popular.

So, since I can't afford to take a vaca this year. I think I'll just hop from pic to pic to see if anyone's home and make myself home in one of these pretty spots. (I think that's called squatting!) ha! A change of scenery is needed here.. BIG TIME! Thanks for inspiring me :)

Those are all such beautiful kitchens! I could be happy in any of them. Those hankie curtains do steal the show! What a great idea for a craft room or even nursery!

Peaches and Maple said...

Hi! I would have to say that the country cottage style kitchens would be my faves. Love those pops of colour :)

Veronica said...

Oh I am delighted to find this post. Not only because i am new to blogging and this is my first link up but also I have started to explore and learn more about colour! This week I posted on aqua, a colour that I have never really considered and I enjyed it so much and your post has some lovely lessons in colour! thank you. Also had a peek at your kitchen post which is lovely! I need another look at your pics...

I love the first kitchens since I live in a small house and the first thing we plan on doing is expanding and remodeling. i am dying for that country sink. I have a whole list of new options now!

little.whitehouse said...

Wonderful pictures, very inspiring. I guess my favourite one is the first because it's a bit messy, in the good sense, meaning I would feel right at home there.

Mary said...

Hanky kitchen is my fave - but honestly, there are sooo many gorgeous ones, it's hard to choose. I also love that beautiful kitchen from Meadowbrook Farm, the one with the EAT sign on the wall, Teresa is an artist. So many talented ladies out there making beautiful kitchens. Thanks for sharing all the eye candy with us! What a treat!

What a great lesson on the effective use of red in the kitchen!

GIVE ME RED RIBBON

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not yellow or purple or green;
But burgundy, chestnut, carmine or rose—
These are the colors with sheen!

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not saffron or opal or blue;
But fuchsia, magenta, ruby or blush—
Something of sanguinous hue!

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not indigo, azure or grey;
But scarlet, vermilion, dahlia or pink—
Colors like these make my day!

~~Carol~~ said...

I am in desperate need of a kitchen overhaul! Nothing expensive, just paint and accessories, so I am SO inspired by all of these kitchens! I want to run to the paint store right now and paint my cabinets that lovely shade of blue!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

Cherry Chick said...

All so beautiful but was so glad to see the one with the glass pendant lights...I just did a table white that is exactly like that one!

I'm definitely the Country Cottage style, but trying to choose a favorite of them is hard! I like the fabric hiding the dishwasher in #1, and the {So Sweet} photo, too!

I love the green hutch in the {So Sweet} kitchen! I'm in the process of formulating my plan for my Northern Virginia kitchen remodeling project...I really wanted to do a retro 1950s-style kitchen with modern accents, like an island with bar-stool seating and a gas-range inlay. But after seeing all these beautiful kitchen photos, it's so hard for me to decide what to do! The kitchen is my favorite room in the house, so I'd better make it a good one! Thanks for the ideas! Can't wait to get started! :D
