See this country kitchen for example. What is it which is giving this room that unwinding, yet stylish look? You are right! The cane baskets and weathered copper and other pots that are cleverly selected from old markets and kept hanging from a suspended ladder can give an incredible charm and uniqueness to the kitchen. The walls are of light color, doused with bright sunlight coming in from wide glass window and door is another essential part of the joyful look. The four-legged friend sitting patiently, a kitchen plant, a fruit bowl, etc add more homeliness to the entire setting.

Miscellany without Clutter

And look at this one. If you see keenly you will notice that there are a lot of items stored here, but it never looks cluttered. Here the wooden table and stool are giving a true vintage feeling. Plates and pots are stored under the table and have been kept hanging above it too, but in a style!

Slanting Ceiling

Bright colors, a compact kitchen plant kept on a whitewashed platform, aprons hanging, the trash can beside the refrigerator…what else can give you a feeling of coziness?

Stone Walls, Wooden Furniture, Earthen Pots, Greenery…
