European Inspired Kitchens

Our trip to Europe has inspired me to do a post on European inspired kitchens
especially since finding inspirational pictures of kitchens is one of my favorite things to do!
I hope you like these.

Roosters have been a staple in french country kitchens for a long time.
I love how they are used in a subtle way here with the pretty mural above the range
and just a couple ceramic roosters on the counter.

The use of wood, especially for ceiling beams and floors is a common element in
European kitchens.
 Notice the pretty curved piece of wood above the doorway on the left.


Don't you love the stone walls and floors of this kitchen?
They immediately give it a sense of age and history.

I'm really liking the old fireplace in this one ~ it gives us that cozy feeling.

This kitchen is really rustic and you definitely get the feeling
that it has been around awhile.

I think the touches of red with the brick, cafe curtains, and toile tablecloth look great 
in this kitchen full of character.
Don't you love all of the hanging baskets and copper pieces?

Did these kitchens inspire you?
Which one did you like the best?
It's a hard choice, I know!

As always, thanks so much for visiting ~

  3. We are making some cosmetic changes in our kitchen right now so this was great for ideas!

  4. Beams on the ceiling and upholstered furniture in the kitchen are two of my favorite details!

  5. All are so beautiful and the beams oh my gorgeous.

  6. I think your photo choices are amazing in Euro style. I have just been through an update to our kitchen blending the old with the new, antique beams, much wow added in bringing a rustic charm with living with culinary appliances and bringing rustic touches. I truly delight in all your photos and yes there is charm and magic to glaze upon and appreciate these intriguing photos. I added a Tuscan/French charm in an updated Philadelphia row-home and how like you I've come home with a wanderlust of European charm from vacations. it touches your heart and reasonates in your soul. Wonderful choices of amazing photos to convey your message.

  7. All so pretty! Number three is my fav though.

  8. Wow! I love all of them but the one with the stone wall is my favorite.

  9. I loved this round-up of European kitchens! I love the stone walls, the beams, the stone floors! All so beautiful!

  10. I would LOVE to have any of these kitchens in my home. They are absolutely wonderful!

  11. Those are lovely inspiration pictures! I think my favourite is the third one, but it's difficult to choose.

  12. Joanne,
    All these kitchens are lovely, dear one!!!
    My style is Traditional, so I'd possibly choose the first one, minus the chickens!!!
    I am quite smitten with your Blog Boss!!!
    Our beloved Maurice was laid to rest nearly 3 years ago.
