If I were to imagine what a comfortable, yet very classy country kitchen would look lie, I would imagine this one. I have a lot of respect for kitchen designs that are accessible, functional, and at the same time are visually fantastic. The white coloring of this kitchen is a big part of what makes it work so well. What helps balance everything is the black coloring of the island. I also love the fan above the island. That makes this also an ideal kitchen for the gourmet cook. This is an example of a kitchen design that is able to be many things to many people.
