Normally I'm into all-white kitchen, but this one designed by internationally renowned kitchen designer Mick De Giulio of de Giulio kitchen design out of Chicago has me seriously rethinking that! Photographed by Dave Burk of Hedrich Blessing Photographers, this French country kitchen from a home in Monte Sereno, California strikes the perfect balance between rustic and elegant. I love all the natural elements here, the open shelving and nooks, and the big island, not to mention the windows and fab aqua backsplash (obviously)!! You can see lots more amazing kitchens designed by Mick De Giulio right here, or check out his book Kitchen Centric, which features eighteen of his favorite kitchen projects!
