“Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s well-being.”
- Albert Hadley

The kitchen is a gathering place, a creative place and in many cases, the room that gets the most use and love in a home. To celebrate the kitchen we have put together ten country kitchens that make use of color and texture, making them cheerful in the spring, welcoming in the summer, warm in the fall, comforting in the winter and unique to their residents all year long. Let us know your favorite, and share stories of your kitchen and how putting it together has nourished your life and family in the comment section below.

Example of Rustic Farmhouse Animal Themed Decorating What Works With Cow Print?

As shown above, cow themed home accents can range from stark contrast with black and white prints to rustic charm or pastoral beauty. Coordinate your cow themed kitchen or dining room with other themes easily incorporated to make the whole room shine.

Black, White and Red All Over: Red is a wonderful accent to black and white. Offering stark contrast and modern appeal, red can take the form of apples, cherries, or bright red roosters. For more rustic farmhouse animal themes, try deep barn red instead, as shown in the environment to the left.

Green as the Grass: Green is another great option for decorating with a black and white cow print scheme, offering a playful atmosphere full of life. To tone things down a bit, go for muted dark green colors.

Pastel is Pastoral: Continue adding additional soft colors into your home when decorating with peaceful options such as Good Pastures Wall Border shown above. Lighter colors will keep things feeling fresh and new.
