In his restoration of Château de Sailhant, architect Joseph Pell Lombardi installed a La Cornue range to update the 19th-century kitchen, which is outfitted with period copper cookware and kerosene lamps. The floor is paved with six-inch-thick volcanic stone, which references the volcanic Auvergne region of central France, where the home is located.

The walls and ceiling in the kitchen of a log cabin–style home in the foothills of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains are clad with salvaged wood. Interior designer Suzanne Kasler decorated the space with a pair of 18th-century French still lifes and a 19th-century English-oak rack.

In a 200-year-old barn that she transported to coastal Rhode Island, designer Ellen Denisevich-Grickis created an eclectic kitchen setting: Rustic beams mix with a vibrant Shaker-style island, Murano-glass chandelier, and Viking stainless-steel appliances. The concrete floors are embedded with chips of mirror, mother-of-pearl, abalone shell, and sea glass.

Architect Howard J. Backen built a dream home in Napa Valley for the owners of Diamond Mountain Vineyard. The spacious kitchen is at one end of a vaulted pavilion flanked by covered porches with sliding glass doors. The kitchen is separated from the living area by an antique baking table from Ireland.

    I am wishing for a new rustic kitchen right now! These are all beautiful but I believe my favorite would be the Napa Valley… the porches and glass doors.
