INTERIOR KITCHEN IN PROVENCE STYLE (part 2)
“RISES” OF PROVENCE
If you do not have enough time to organize and carry out trips to the countryside or to the village to enjoy the peace and beautiful scenery, then this rustic island can be made in your kitchen. Creating a kitchen design in the Provence style, it is worth considering not only the features of the chosen direction, but also the little things that will give greater similarity with the villages of France:
bare rough ceiling beams;
bulky wooden furniture;
shelves of cabinets open or with glass doors;
tablecloths from coarse homespun fabrics;
manually knitted lace napkins;
window curtains should be made of light translucent fabrics;
small pillows are laid out on chairs and a kitchen sofa.
Each nuance will bring its contribution to the interior and will make it unique.
An ideal option is to incorporate a fireplace into the design. This is possible with a sufficiently large area of the kitchen and the availability of available funds.
There is an opinion that a Provence style kitchen should be completely white. This is an unreliable opinion. Undoubtedly, white color is present necessarily, but not in large quantities. If you have a dark and small kitchen, then with its help you can visually expand the space and fill the room with light. But remember, the white leitmotif should be filled with bright shades that will enliven the kitchen.
In fact, there should be many colors in this style:
The list is several times larger, but all shades and colors should fit the category of “pastel”. This is due to the fact that on the Cote d’Azur in the summer there is an abundance of sunlight, so even persistent and bright colors fade. Consider some of the most popular design options.
