I came across these absolutely lovely ideas for country kitchens. Although I don't think they are applicable to most houses, still they are nice to see!!!
Pale colours and rustic details
Rustic, natural wood and whites
Creamy white and of course... a cow!
Country with a modern touch
Florals, teal combined with yellows
Creamy whites, teal, baskets - notice the flooring
