The New FarmhouseFarmhouse Kitchen, Bridgeport
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Lemon yellow. No matter how sleepy the homeowners are, this bright farmhouse kitchen must perk them right up in the morning. A pitcher of sunflowers is right at home in the yummy lemon yellow room. Note the way the designers painted the trim to match the cabinets. They did this around the windows and doors as well as on a narrow piece of molding around the ceiling to continue the brightness around the room.

5. The Provençal palette. Europeans have loved yellow for ages. Audrey Hepburn always kept vases of yellow flowers in her homes, and yellow often features prominently in Provençal textiles and kitchen linens. This little farmhouse kitchen borrows European style and a color palette to match, with a countryside influence whose appeal is hard to deny.
2. Schoolhouse-style clocks. Looking at these reminds us of watching that second hand go around ever so slowly right before the bell rang. They make me glad I no longer have to do that, and their crisp black and white palette and numbers in classic fonts never go out of style.
Modernize a classic design. Does your country-style home look a tad tired? Ditch the buttery creams and light lemony tones (which are often used in traditional country designs) and freshen up your space with brighter, livelier shades of yellow. The vibrant yellow paint works wonders in this farmhouse kitchen and brings it into the now. While the colored cabinetry is the focal point, the same paint color is used on the range hood, as well as on the door and ceiling trim, to tie the look together.Paint: Babouche, Farrow & Ball
The cabinet doors are a design Churchill likes to employ. “True Shaker drawer design is tough, as each was so specific to the item it held,” he says. “We like the look of these drawers, which are flush with a beaded face frame.”
