This kitchen design definitely belongs out in the country in a big cottage. The cooking area is great because of you notice the way it is positioned across form the dinner table, it enables the cook to stay engaged with family or guests that he or she is cooking for. In like manner, because of this design the cook can easily have helpers going back and forth easily form the cooking area to the dinner table ferrying plates and such. The colors really make it feel rustic. I love the variety of browns at use here. It helps keep the place very elegant, yet at the same time very comfortable.
