Elegant, neutral colors, like black and creme-colored whites, are very reflective of a kitchen that is designed with a Paris influence in mind. On the other hand, bold colors and brightly tiled surfaces are a trademark of French country kitchens.

If you are seeking a classic French-style kitchen, then consider a kitchen island that boasts simple, black cabinetry paired with a marble or granite countertop. The effect will be noteworthy, but perfectly understated.

A French country kitchen island will call for cabinets made from a rustic wood and, perhaps, stained a barn red or light antique green. Top the woodwork off with a white counter or butcher block surface to complete the look. These French kitchen islands also typically work well with an extra punch of colorful tile embedded in the countertop or sides of the island.

Curved, decorative accents also work well with French kitchen islands. Consider adding wood accents, like grape vines, to cabinets or French-inspired materials to counter-style seating.
