Wood is the ultimate choice for those, who are looking for this type of design. Large wooden tabled cabinets, wooden open shelves that have antique furniture, ancient style accessories on them is the essence of the kitchen furniture. 
It can be beautified as well as simplified, but it must strictly be rustic. There must be a unity in everything that you will gather for accomplishing this style.
Add some wooden hutches, painted shelve and cabinets, and mismatch wooden furniture articles. It can work well. Add some traditional accents like stones, coppers, and irons. Roughly sawn wood furniture, arched hutches, and shelves that have reclaimed lumber are a great for kitchen.


The color scheme plays a huge role in deciding the design. Red and shades of orange are actually the signature colors for this type of design. Oranger is said to be appetite stimulant and comfort maker color.
Hardwood flooring and wood flooring, copper and metallic color that is well coordinated with that Mediterranean feel is the perfect plan set. Wall painting must be done by keeping the depth and feel of the design in mind.
Try orange, red and several shades of gold, olive greens, and darkest shades of Tuscan style furniture as well.
Try cobalt blue, burnt orange, tomato red, olive green, and sunflower yellow. Being bold and experimental is the key when adapting design. Try stucco walls, venetian plasters, rough looking walls, so you will feel rustic the moment you enter the kitchen. Try iron wall decorating techniques like iron wall grills, cabinet, to be the focal point of the kitchen.


How about a plastic tea set on that stunning mahogany central dining table! Flop, the idea of putting wrong accessories in a perfect design is like returning from Italy without visiting Venice! Hence, make sure you choose the best accessories to complement your design. Carefully pick all the accessories and cutlery articles.
Go for metal patinas, oil-rubbed bronze accessories, natural wooden and terracotta pottery for the perfect feel of this style. Use large and exposed oil-rubbed hinges, iron latches, wrought iron pottery, earthenware vessels, copper pottery and cooking utensils.
In addition iron candle holders, hand painted and designer vases, large and aged containers (earthenware will do), framed artwork, and simple and subtle light fixtures can be employed to make the perfect design.
The only precaution that one needs to take is to avoid overcrowding the furniture and accessories, as it will kill the décor.
