Cottage - Style Kitchens - details that give a kitchen a cozy cottage feel are detailed moldings, open shelving and plate racks, beadboard, wide-plank wood flooring, etc. This is a great post with lots of ideas - via BHG
Love the color scheme here--especially the island. This is a great way to pair white/gray/aqua without looking like an ice cave. light/white cabinets - lots of flush drawers, colored glass subway tile, glass door cabinets, cookbook space
I love the cottage style features: the texture of the ceiling; the wood floors; the wood countertop on the island contrasting with the other countertop; the cabinets with moulding that goes to the ceiling; the farmhouse sink.
Pop of Color To create a seamless look, the cabinets, walls, and trim are painted the same shade of white. The table-style red island is the perfect pop of color, while the mix of metal baskets infuses cottage style and a vintage flair.
