We love the look of a rustic kitchen — and it's a style that's gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. What's interesting is that we're starting to see the emergence of something we're calling 'new rustic': kitchens that strike a balance between uber-minimal and country cozy. It's a lovely little marriage — a serene, minimal backdrop punctuated by just the right amount of warm, textured elements. Here are some of our favorite examples.
