Renovated by Anne McDonald, this Minnesota home balances rustic and Scandinavian vibes to perfection.

A set of cute vintage wooden chairs and a custom island that cleverly shares the same details.

This 100-year-old barn in the Hudson River Valley has been renovated with the help of ELLE DECOR A-List design team Heide Hendricks and Rafe Churchill. The dining area features timeless pieces like a vintage table and chairs, along with a charming kitchenette painted in Farrow & Ball’s Dead Salmon.


vintage dream

Vanessa Branson has redesigned this property on Eilean Shona, a remote Scottish island, as a guest dream destination. The cozy kitchen is the perfect rustic space, a feeling enhanced by the vintage table and chairs. The blue gives it a pop of color and the white backsplash, a classic touch.


Cozy charm

For restaurateur Rosa Bonura, it was fitting that the kitchen be the star of her 18th-century Connecticut home. Remodeled by New York-based interior designer Ryan Lawson, the remodeled kitchen includes a Shaker-style paneled cabinet and Demon shelving units designed by Mathieu Mategot. The rustic feel is completed by the use of natural materials.


California Dreamin’

Sometimes all you need to evoke a rural feel is a rustic island. In the case of this Southern California home from Studio Shamshiri, a custom kitchen island was designed by John Williams and accompanied by BDDW stools. The warm, earthy tone of the island pairs perfectly with Farrow & Ball’s leaf green Dyrehaven paint.


A Hamptons classic

Located in East Hampton, New York, Sherrill Farmhouse was built in the 18th century and rebuilt in 1858. Originally, the property functioned as a working dairy farm and was the perfect location for a rustic kitchen. The bright space exudes a casual, summery feel, thanks to the bright white tile and salvaged wooden island.


Relaxed luxury

This laid-back Lake Tahoe home combines luxury and simplicity. The kitchen was designed by Palmer Weiss and features Exquisite Surfaces backsplash tile and a Caesarstone countertop. The reclaimed barn wood beams on the ceiling and the stained white oak floor complete the look.


19th century update

Michael Carey, a fashion consultant who worked for Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, wanted to create the mansion of his dreams. This Claverack, New York home features an original 19th-century kitchen with an old-fashioned fireplace and beehive oven. You can’t get more original than that!


Rustic in Uruguay

This rustic sanctuary lies between the coastal town of José Ignacio and the inner Uruguayan village of Garzón. The kitchen is all about timeless simplicity, from the leather pendant light to the ceiling beams made from an old railroad track found in a nearby field.


Modern fairy tale

In this kitchen, designer Heidi Caillier let the house’s 18th-century charm steal the show. She left the original beams exposed, incorporated country-style cabinets (painted in an ultra-fresh cream color), and added paneling to give a historic feel. Summer Studio wooden countertops surround the island with Carrara’s marble top.


Farm fresh

This Victorian farmhouse in the English countryside exudes rustic charm from the inside out. Rita Konig designed her own home and decorated her kitchen with a star pendant from Pooky and a classic white enamel Aga stove. Wooden statement pieces such as the dining table and chairs give the room an extra country look.


A modern twist

This 1840 farmhouse kitchen in Bridgehampton, New York, feels both modern and rustic, thanks to its chic all-gray palette. Led by interior designer Steven Gambrel, the kitchen has a striking marble sink and countertops, painterly cabinets (in Benjamin Moore’s Heatherstone), and a vibrant collection of Bea Evan paintings from the 1930s.


Portuguese getaway

Florence Grinda’s Portuguese vacation home, designed by decorating all-star Jacques Granges, is the dream destination. The kitchen brings in all the freshness of the sunny environment of the house. The cabinets were painted a vibrant blue and antique Portuguese plates adorn the walls.


Rustic Long Island Cuisine

Fashion designer Chris Benz believes in the power of ‘color, proportion and the combination of things’. In his own kitchen he mixed the old with the new. He kept the original cabinets, but painted them in a vintage-inspired light green and added new hardware. An antique farmhouse table, meanwhile, serves as a rustic kitchen island.


Historic charm and rustic touches

The plan for this rural carriage house, located on a 45-acre farm in Bedford, New York, was to “keep the place cozy and rustic,” says ELLE DECOR A-List designer Virginia Tupker. That vibe naturally extended into the kitchen, where the shelves are made from reclaimed wood found on the farm, the floor is concrete, and the island is topped by a vintage marble slab.
