my taste is a simple fusion of French Provincial/New England Coastal/Cottage/Shabby Chic/Pre-War/NON-Country-Traditional-Modern-Contemporary living. I guess you just have to really know what you do & don't like :)
Remember this kitchen with a blue stove that I featured in January? I came across some more pictures of this lovely cottage in the UK designed by Dave Coote. I thought you might be interested in seeing them!
