French Country Glam Kitchen Design

This freshly renovated kitchen in New Hampshire is a balanced mash up of modern and French country farmhouse and I am so thankful I got to be apart of it. First and foremost, this kitchen was a vision of the homeowner who hand picked all the products and details. I am such a fan of this beautiful kitchen I had to write a blog detailing all the unique details of this design that I loved!

Tile Work on the Island & Full Height Tile Backsplash

Absolutely LOVE this detail. Pulling in the backsplash tile on sections of the island was a great way to add visual interest to this kitchen. The home owner selected White Carrara Marble Lantern Mosaic tile backsplash from Lowe’s as her first inspiration piece for this design and it became her muse for all of the other details. While she opted for a polished finish on these tiles, they are available in honed if you want a less reflective tile.

Choosing your backsplash tile first is a great way to make selecting the rest of the details in your design easier.

Carrying the tile past the window frame makes the room feel larger and adds additional visual interest to the space.

Traditional French Details

The Tear Drop light fixtures and the plush Pom Pom pillows add to the airy, rustic-elegance of this kitchen. The taller barstools in this design were repurposed from bar stools the home owner had on hand and the pillow covers and light fixtures were purchased from Amazon and and Overstock.comPer

Unique Hardware

Now this is the amount of detail I am talking about! If you aren’t putting this much thought into your design, then you will not have the curated touches that pull the whole thing together! These beautiful old world knobs can be found at and they are offered in many different finishes.

These cabinet pulls were selected from a local store here in Concord, NH- The Ultimate Kitchen and Bath store.

Oversized Apron Front Sink

Custom Statuario Quartz Countertops

Quartz is a great stone choice for kitchen countertops if you want something that looks like a marble without the demand and high maintenance tendencies of marble. This Statuario Quartz, fabricated by Quality Granite and Cabinetry in Concord, NH is a beautiful white stone with subtle grey and bluish grey veining throughout.

White Shaker Cabinetry

Shaker cabinetry can be utilized to achieve many different design styles. It’s clean, simple, and can be modern or more traditional depending on your hardware selection and finish. This White Shaker cabinetry design was customized by me at Quality Granite and Cabinetry in Concord, NH. This kitchen has many custom interior fittings including a mixer pullout, trash and recycling cabinet, tray divide cabinet, and custom rollout out trays for optimal storage!
