When it comes to kitchens, I tend to prefer a cottage style kitchen because it feels homey and comforting. I don’t need all the latest and greatest appliances and gadgets – just give me something functional and charming. Today’s kitchen by Paul Lopa Designs has plenty of cozy appeal, along with a fun tile pattern for the back splash.
The back splash might be the first thing to catch your eye. I think most people are probably hesitant to add a busy back splash, but I think it works in this cottage style kitchen.
Rather than keep all painted surfaces white, the homeowners opted for a bit of light blue-green color here and there. The light fixtures above the kitchen island are unique and charming.
The counter matches the gray in the decorative tiles, pulling the whole room together.
The cottage-style kitchen has ample space for a fairly large table. A lot of homes have smaller breakfast nooks, but it’s nice to have room to invite guests for a casual dinner.
On a recent shopping trip I spied chairs like these and fell in love with them. Unfortunately – or maybe fortunately because I didn’t spend money – I have no need for new dining chairs. But these sure are cute and fit well with the kitchen’s theme.
The bright and cheery kitchen is both functional and pretty, and the wood floor adds an element of warmth.
What do you think of this cottage style kitchen? Are you a fan of the bolder choice in back splash?
