New Country Kitchen

Designer Darryl Carter's kitchen is clean, almost Shaker-like and utilitarian.

With the new country look, even finishing touches have simple lines and handcrafted appeal. Organic pieces like rough-hewn boards and firewood soften a clean white space with natural texture. The look is as hardworking as ever — industrial appliances and a farmhouse table that doubles as an island — but emits modern serenity.
