White country house style paired with delicate vintage and shabby chic – this is how you could describe the style of my kitchen. My husband and I invested many hours in our kitchen. Starting with the kitchen structure, upholstering the seating set, painting the walls and windows, right up to attaching the tiles, we did everything ourselves. The work was worth it. The result speaks for itself. Now we have finally realized our dream kitchen. Exactly how we imagined it. If you like, I would be happy to take you on a small tour of my country house kitchen with vintage flair.
Country house kitchen with vintage flair
Cozy seating area
The heart of my country house kitchen is this cozy dining area with a large, softly upholstered bench and an old wooden table with a shabby look. I used white chalk paint to paint the table. I love the velvety, powdery effect of this color so much.
For our dining bench, which was originally covered with light blue fabric, I chose a very special fabric, a Toile de Jouy . The French Toile de Jouy is a very noble cotton fabric, which has a very decorative effect due to its fine drawings and is particularly popular for furnishings with a shabby look. We overdid the bank ourselves. Now it is hardly recognizable and gives our kitchen a very special flair.
On special occasions or when guests come to visit, the table is prepared and decorated with a lot of love. I particularly like to decorate with accessories in delicate pastel shades. In combination with the amount of white in my kitchen, these colors look fresh and create a good mood.
Vintage ceramic sink
My absolute favorite in my kitchen is this large, white, vintage ceramic sink. The sink is not only particularly practical, but also a real eye-catcher in my white country house kitchen.
Also when it came to choosing a tap, I definitely wanted a model that would go with this country house kitchen and my preference for vintage style. When I discovered this tap in a shop, I didn’t want anyone else. Made with great attention to detail, it fits perfectly and is made for this sink.
As in grandma’s time – a shelf with bulk cans for flour, sugar and other food. I’ve always wanted a shelf like this for my kitchen.
I use decorative accessories very sparingly in my kitchen. Too much standing around would only bother me in the kitchen work. It is all the more important for me that various kitchen appliances, such as an espresso machine or toaster, are not only functional, but also decorative and fit harmoniously into the overall picture. The old shutter in the background supports the vintage character of this retro espresso machine. In between, the shutter is sometimes converted into a pin board for sensual sayings, favorite photos or other memorabilia. All these details give the room a very personal touch and make the kitchen a place where we all feel very comfortable.
Finally, I have put together all DEPOT products for you, which you can see in my kitchen pictures:

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my country house kitchen. Maybe I could inspire you a little, I would be happy.
