The village house kitchen (above) is so inviting with its glazed tile surround and aged stucco. I love the light streaming in from the tall window, and that oven surely bakes splendid French bread, as shown in the photo at right.

Okay, maybe it's a bit too rustic for some, but I can image how cozy this kitchen must be on a chilly autumn morning. Beautiful beamed ceiling, white-washed rock walls and warm wood floorboards. This seems to be the perfect gathering room for a dream cabin in the woods.

A bit more modern in its approach, but no less appealing, the combination of stainless steel against the rustic rock walls and brick floor (above) is a delightful way to update a space full of character.

Who can deny the beauty of an Italian-inspired, barrel ceiling made of red antique bricks? And, those rustic beams ... bellissimo! Somehow the white tiled backsplash and slate flooring creates a beautiful canvas for the black and white decor.

The virtue of white tile is a bit lost on me. I keep thinking of endless hours spent cleaning tile and grout. But, there is such an inherent, simplistic beauty and compatibility with other elements of decor that I think white tile may deserve a spot in a rustic dream kitchen.
