The New Country: Sleek & Artisanal
Designer Darryl Carter's kitchen is clean, almost Shaker-like and utilitarian.
Country style has perhaps come furthest from its origins — no more cutesy prints or red accents. 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 now emits modern serenity.
