Among many styles of furnishing used for rooms today, the French country style is the most beautiful and cutest. This style is also called Provence: it came to us from France, it has been modified, but it has retained its main characteristics that were used a long time ago.
Provence only recognizes natural materials as a Mediterranean style: wood, metal, stone, rough plastered surfaces. It loves ceramic – mosaic tiles. It is even assumed that a fireplace will be used in the kitchen. The French country house interior loves warm and soft colors. She loves “faded” shades: olive, beige, mustard, lavender, sand, wheat.
The furniture can be of unusual colors: blue, turquoise, yellow and lavender. Very often these colors are combined and resemble a field of French Provence. The kitchen in this style should look light and airy, sunny and very warm. The French-style country house kitchen loves textiles: linen tablecloths, air curtains, lace napkins, fabric chair covers. Flower prints are very popular.
Such a kitchen will enjoy a multitude of small charming and absolutely useless things: vases, birdcages, baskets, candle holders and other cute country house kitchen decorations. The walls are decorated with ceramic panels, beautiful landscapes, wall clocks, elegant shelves and mirrors in painted frames. the furniture must not be painted, but whitewashed. The French country house style is hard to imagine without wicker baskets, white porcelain dishes, live or dried flowers. Images of rooster and lavender, French symbols, are used.
