Do you dream of a rustic farmhouse style kitchen? We know the sort – real stone flooring, Shaker cabinets, an Aga of course, earthenware crockery placed haphazardly on shelves, copper pans hanging from a rack above the sink, maybe the odd chicken running around. Basically looks something like the set of a Hardy novel, but in a good way.
Well, we suggest you take a look at Zara's new kitchen collection (opens in new tab) right now because it's got all those vibes going on.
There is a lot to get through: tableware, glassware, serving stuff, oven dishes and there are even a few gorgeous Smeg pieces available on the website! So if you are just looking for a roundup of the best here it is...
1. STONEWARE OVEN SERVING DISH (opens in new tab)
To sit a top your Aga, obviously. This gorgeous dish from the new collection comes in cream or matt black and you can pick between two different sizes.
2. SMEG TOASTER (opens in new tab)
Sure maybe Tess of the D'Urbervilles wouldn't have had the luxury of a Smeg toaster in her kitchen but this would look pretty great in a farmhouse style kitchen, would it not? There is also a black version, plus a kettle (opens in new tab) and a juicer (opens in new tab) to match.
3. EARTHENWARE JAR (opens in new tab)
Ooooh, nothing says rustic like some pretty jars on some open shelves. We love this one from the new Zara collection, perfect for coffee or teabags, we reckon. Plus there is a lovely matching jug (opens in new tab).
4. Wooden cutting boards (opens in new tab)
Just imagine a couple of these propped up on your kitchen counter or hanging above the oven. They come in three sizes and shapes so you can pick one to suit your budget but we do love the look of them all together.
5. STRIPED CHAIR CUSHION (opens in new tab)
And just to add a tiny bit of colour to all that cream and wood, these red striped chair cushions are also part of the collection. There are placemats (opens in new tab), baskets (opens in new tab) and apron (opens in new tab) to match too so you can go all out that simple country look.
