For a fresh perspective on kitchen design, we decided to go global. Around the world, the kitchens that got us most excited were those that expressed a sense of place. The standout looks included a stunning modern farmhouse in rural England, an Argentine mountain lodge with pared-down utilitarian style, and a Balinese hideaway that nods to Dutch colonial architecture.
From an antique chest that doubles as a kitchen island to an inexpensive backsplash fashioned from galvanized steel, these kitchens feature a wealth of clever ideas worth emulating. In each of the slideshows below, we provide the tips and products you'll need to recreate these distinctive looks in your own kitchen.
