Suggestions for french country kitchen open to other rooms
I finally have a plan I love, but the kitchen is now open to the dining area, sunroom, living room and entry. That's a lot of other rooms, looking into the kitchen! I'd like to keep my french country theme, but it needs to 'work' with the 8' high, floor to ceiling brick fireplace (with raised hearth) in the living room.
The fireplace is actually very pretty...it's kind of a dark rose/red brick and it was built by my husband's uncle. We don't want to paint it, but we do want to bring in the outdoor or country colors of blues, greens, yellows and cream. The living room will probably have soft gold walls and look a bit like this, with not quite so much pattern. Oh, and not that rug! Wood floors with a much calmer area rug. Probably a sofa or sectional in front of the big window, with a TV across from it and a big chair in the corner, by the smaller window, similar to the picture :)
I want to include a plate rack and some other open storage, maybe some glass uppers and the hutch, by the dining table. I really like this style...
I love china and teacups/saucers in all kinds of meadow flowers...violets, lily of the valley, roses...but not too formal, more cottage style.
And of course, anything french...
So, I was thinking white cabinets and appliances with maybe soft yellow or gold walls, with blue accents and plants. As many of you know, still not entirely sure about countertops and backsplash, but I'm getting closer to making a decision.
Before I do, any suggestions or ideas, with what I've shown you for my layout and inspiration pictures? Thanks in advance :)
