Country Living Style Kitchens

So much to love about country style kitchens.  Full of inspiration for the DIYer, and loaded with charm, I selected some of my favorite Country Living magazine kitchens to drool over.  A small vintage stove might not be that effective for cooking for a crowd, but you gotta love the sink cabinet, the light fixtures, the vintage lace garlands in lieu of window treatments and the off center framed floral print.
This country kitchen has a strong french vibe~check out the toile wallpaper in the hutch and the checkered cafe curtains.
I adore this kitchen! Look at the shelf mounted straight across the window on corbel brackets for pretty display.  A vintage table cloth is the apron curtain under that fabulous farmhouse sink.  I wanna open every cabinet and see what wonderful treasures are hidden inside. Look~ how darling is the lace pinned to the lower third of the glass cabinet doors?
Pink fridge? Grey and green stove? Oh, I recognize that floral framed print now, this all goes with that fabulous chippy sink cabinet! This kitchen is getting better and better....!
Classic beadboard and wood countertops finished off with a big farmhouse utility sink and fridge. I bet the ice cubes are being made in those metal ice cube trays that have the handle you have to pull to break them apart.
This kitchen could be mine with the giant letter A on the wall and the tole tray.
Mustard yellow walls scream French all the way~
Gorgeous gothic cabinetry, with lowers in distressed black paint and uppers in wood stain with those fabulous gothic muntins.
Oh look, a mini-hutch filled with blue and whites! That looks like a basic white formica countertop with a wood edge, and look how pretty it all looks.  This must be in a coastal location as someone committed to a seashell tile backsplash border.  I wouldn't have recommended that, as the beadboard alone with the schooner painting says "seacoast". 
And the last country kitchen is my own sweet kitchen! Painted cabinetry and a big drainboard sink gave me my own piece of country cottage living, right here in the middle of the suburbs.
Do you have a favorite? 
(Mine not included of course or the voting would be signed sealed and delivered, haha!)
