The English country style does not derive from the great house of the English countryside but from modest homes and bungalows that have been lived in comfortably for generationsmand are pleasantly cluttered. To re-create this style, choose cabinets with a patina of age and details such as plate racks, niches, glasss fronts. For floors, wood or matte-finish tile works well; countertops1 may be stone, solid-surfacing, or wood-any material that does not look shiny and new. The desired effect resembles an Old World kitchen, but the colors are lighter, and personal collections of English china are key.
