Blue country kitchen with wooden beams

Blue country kitchen with wooden beams

Go for simplicity in a country kitchen. Vibrant colours and exotic tiles definitely have their place, but here all that’s needed is a pale-blue painted wall to jazz the look up. After all, the wooden beams are such a key part of this space that it’s best not to detract from them. Honey-coloured wooden units are another appropriate choice for a farmhouse kitchen, both for style and practicality.
