40 Beautiful European Country Kitchens {Decor Inspiration}

It’s all about Beautiful European Country Kitchens today; some with English Country style, more with French Country style, others with Nordic appeal, and a few with Belgian design. Their common denominator? With only a few exceptions: rustic decor.

Shabby Chic White English Cottage Design Inspiration. Vintage style, English country sensibilities and all white decor in addition to rustic country charm.

I shared a very quiet and meditative look at rustic weathered walls and some personal reflections yesterday here if you missed it. Today is a kitchen love kinda day with a mix of mainly farmhouse style kitchens across Europe to satisfy your appetite for inspiring European country kitchen design ideas, whether its French farmhouse style or minimal English lovely that floats your boat.

Beautiful kitchen design inspiration. Arabescato Corchia marble counters, backsplash, and island. English country kitchen with rustic, traditional, classic, and industrial style as well as traditional design elements. Also rather lovely? Natural finishes, high end kitchen amenities, and a mix of textures and modern details too. This undoubtedly luxurious kitchen design is surprisingly welcoming. Certainly lovely indeed!

Though the designs vary, I think you’ll sense a decidedly authentic, comforting, and undone sensibility which so many of us admire and which I aim to celebrate on Hello Lovely.

Meet me at the finish line with your thoughts about how European country kitchens differ from those commonly seen in the USA.

10 Amazing English Country Kitchens by deVOL. deVOL kitchen's South Wing Kitchen. You can't go wrong with Trinity Blue cupboards, especially when they're paired with smooth pale worktops, walls and floors - what a beautifully simple and peaceful combination. Notice these cupboards are fitted away from the walls too, this created the bespoke and freestanding feel to the room that the customers really wanted but it was all done using standard sized cupboards from our Shaker range. #deVOLKitchens

The Scullery is one of the three rooms that make up the downstairs of the Millhouse showrooms at Cotes Mill, it’s a very simply furnished room and of all the spots to see this Classic English range, it’s the most humble. You see the piece of furniture, solid hardwood, handmade and hand-painted, it’s not a modular kitchen cupboard that needs another one next to it, it’s a whole cupboard all-encompassing. 10 Amazing English Country Kitchens by deVOL. #deVOLKitchens

    Very romantic. But if I had to choose, I would go for your kitchen, Michele! Clean, fresh, light, welcoming and current with the needs of cooking in our time. Some of these were very charming, but dark. I would be always looking for spiders…..just saying, because they like dark, woody places. Give me quartz and freshly painted cabinets and sunshine any day!

      I hear you! That’s kind of you! I love looking at authentic European country spaces to take in the romance and function which can be interpreted in any number of ways in any style kitchen I think. This approach makes so much more sense to me than shopping for kitschy items that are only suggestive of European country. And for design freaks like me who want to get to the heart of what makes Old World spaces so welcoming, it’s fun to peek inside these uncontrived interiors. 🙂

          It is not as easy as you might think to curate design which has that uncontrived feel! Thanks for the kind words. 🙂

    I like how they use a farm table instead of an island a lot of times. Their kitchens seem more lived in than ours, like you’d just linger there after dinner…

      Right. That unfitted look can be so much more charming than the expected great big island in the middle of the space. 🙂
