If you love this style but don’t know how to apply it to your interiors, this roundup will help you. Let’s have a look how to decorate a French country style kitchen.
Neutrals are the best choice for this style: white, off-whites, light grey, beige and other shades like that are the base of this style, they look soft, elegant and visually expand the space – so many advantages in one!

Prefer vintage and shabby chic furniture, and if you don’t have it, you can just take some furniture and turn it into shabby chic pieces – sanding on whitewashed pieces isn’t difficult. Try natural wood tabletops, they will add rustic coziness. A glass armoire in shabby chic style will not only make your dishes stand out but will also give your kitchen a refined look.
