Coventry Log Homes I found myself tempted to include more than just the photograph of the kitchen of this home. I get very excited about good design, and this home is gorgeous! The log home was built by Coventry Log Homes, and was featured in the July 2011 issue of “Log Cabin Homes.” It proves efficiency doesn’t have to be sacrificed when designing grand elegance. Even with its cathedral ceilings and many windows, it earned a 5 Star Plus Energy Star rating. via: Houzz

Log cabin kitchen designs: Wood plank floors, wood beams, and vaulted ceilings can set the stage for a rustic kitchen. Copper pendant lighting, natural wood cabinets, and stone surfaces blend well. Countertops should be made of marble, granite, soapstone, or wood. For the backsplash, consider using slate tile, river rock, or tin to make a unique statement. Finally, with a blend of natural light, pendant lights, recessed lights, and under-cabinet lighting, you can enhance the ambiance and functionality of your log home kitchen for both day and night.

Cabinet Recommendations: Natural wood with a clear protective finish is a popular choice for log cabin kitchens. Depending on how rustic you would like the kitchen to be, the wood can be either knotty or clear pine, maple, cherry, hickory, oak, or cedar. Some custom cabinetmakers construct cabinet doors and drawer fronts using half logs to match the look of the walls. Others use milk-paints and crackle finishes on early American style cabinets that are antiqued and distressed to add to the rustic charm.

2. Furnishings Furniture is a key element to your rustic kitchen design and a perfect opportunity to round out the theme. Like with many other aspects of rustic design, wood is the word. One popular choice among rustic enthusiasts is to find furniture made from reclaimed barn wood. Log furniture is great for cabins and country homes, but it may be too rustic for some people’s taste. Your dining table should be simple and sturdy, and a heavy pine farm table is a great choice. Farm tables often feature plain, square legs and intentional dents and dings to go along with the knotty wood. You can find a gorgeous selection of rustic furniture at Black Forest Decor

Sinks and Appliances: Look for a large single-bowl or apron sink made of hammered copper, granite, soapstone, cast iron fireclay, or stainless steel. These sinks are wide and deep, making them surprisingly functional. They can also have a rustic feel that blends well with the natural beauty of any log home. Appliances can be either stainless steel or panelized with wood. Avoid white appliances which tend to have a “plastic” appearance, which doesn’t mix well with the natural look in my opinion.

Rustic Kitchen/Dining Room by Stephen Sills Associates In the collection of rustic kitchen and dining room images that I have gathered, this perhaps most represents my own personal style. I love the subtle beauty and energy of this space. Rustic, and yet very elegant and tastefully executed. Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann-style side chairs clad in an Old War Weavers horsehair surround a table designed by Stephen Sills in the dining room of this Aspen, Colorado, home; the kitchen cabinetry is brushed oak, the vintage French chandeliers are from Avantgarden, and the rug is by Beauvais Carpets. via: AD DesignFile Shop Rustic Kitchen Decor

6. Natural Materials Rustic charm is all about retaining a natural look. This is why hardwood floors are a better fit than tile or linoleum. In addition to wood, use other natural materials to bring the design full circle. Stone is a great choice for your counter tops, and there are tons of colors and patterns to choose from. Wrought iron fits with the rustic look, so incorporate some of it into your kitchen design with pot racks, recipe book stands and baker’s racks. Clay and terracotta are great ideas if you’re going for a Southwestern rustic look.

Hello everyone! I have recently returned home from working on a design project in Palm Springs that began with collecting a series of  beautiful images of rustic, farm-house and country kitchens for design inspiration. I often use images in order to kick-start the whole brain-storming process, and it’s a productive and enjoyable way to capture the essence  of what the home owner hopes to achieve. The home had been completely gutted, and we were looking to create harmony between both contemporary and rustic design elements. I thought it would be a great idea to share the images as a source of inspiration for those looking to create a rustic or country kitchen in their own home.  Rustic can take on many forms, and so viewing images is a great way to define and set perimeters. In the Palm Spring project, we were inspired by a painting and used this to draw out the palette of the rest of the home. The following images show a diverse range of rustic design, and I hope that you enjoy viewing them!  I have also included 10 great tips in achieving a rustic home design, how to incorporate color into rustic kitchen design, and some great kitchen decor from Black Forest Decor.

10. Bring the Outside In Because rustic design is often aligned with the region where you live, bringing the outside in is a great way to add rustic flair to your kitchen. Consider installing cabinets made from wood of the surrounding area. The same goes for your choice of hardwood flooring, if there’s a good match available. If your kitchen has nice views of the flora outside, try matching the interior paint color to the dominant flowers within eyesight. Southwestern rustic might call for some cacti and deep reds, greens and browns. A country style rustic palette should feature lighter blues, oranges and yellows. Shop Rustic Kitchen Decor

3. Rustic Colors Traditionally, the rustic color palette includes oranges, browns, yellows, greens and blues. The key to choosing the ideal color for your kitchen is to make sure it gives off a nice, warm feeling. Country kitchens rely on yellow and light blue to usher in some rustic charm, while a Southwestern rustic kitchen calls for deeper reds and oranges to go with the terracotta decorations you probably already have. Use the colors of natural materials like stone, sand and clay as your inspiration.

4. Sinks If you really want to wow with your design choices, you need a farmhouse sink in your rustic kitchen. These large, deep sinks are efficient for handling a large load of dishes. And they offer a unique design element — an exposed front panel, rather than sitting down inside the countertop. Sink materials range from granite and soapstone to iron and copper, and they’ve become increasingly popular in other kitchen styles as well.

The kitchen is in an addition built in 1986. “The work was done by a local gentleman who added lots of interesting quirks that presented some challenges,” Ricco says. For instance, a structural post holding up a balcony in the middle of the kitchen is a big appliance door-blocker and dictated some of the layout.
