In a Spanish country kitchen, charm often begins at the back door
The beauty of many European country-home kitchens lies in their make-do qualities. that’s certainly evident in this rustic Spanish country kitchen. No fancy cabinets, furniture details or posh cabinets. Appliances such as the gas range are often small enough to fit into old-house spaces. Plus, open spaces which remain unexplained visually — like the one to the left of the range — are not uncommon. The appeal of a kitchen such as this is elemental. There is a well-worn marble farm sink with a hook stuck on the front to hold a dish towel. The cabinet below the sink is makeshift and simply supports it at counter level.
Behind the range, a handful of old tiles arranged artfully and related tiles adorn the chimney vent. But they do look leftover from another project. An orange-colored stucco wall gives the kitchen a sunny look. Earthernware dishes are default décor here as well as in Italy and France. Fabric skirts on curtain rods conceal pot and pans storage on shelves below the counters. This is a kitchen without real cabinets but with considerable atmosphere and life.
