Learn how to create your own country kitchen.
Bring a taste of the countryside into your kitchen with help from Norway-based designer Annette Thorsbye.
Norway-based designer Annette Thorsbye’s farmhouse kitchen, awash in green accents and bursting with light, calls to mind the country’s pastoral landscape.
Pendant lights clustered together at slightly differing heights become an instant showpiece. The earthy tones of pale green, cream and taupe are unexpected alternatives to standard brass or chrome.
Forget wallpaper - this kitchen’s retro flooring commands attention. The floral pattern adds visual interest and punctuates the simple glossy white furniture.
A bright green sheaf of wheat brings a taste of the countryside to the dining table and ties into the space’s fresh colour palette.
Open shelves offer easy access to everyday dishware. They also double as a pretty display case, exhibiting orderly white and citrus-hued items that wake up the neutral walls.
