Though it might surprise you, my dream kitchen doesn’t have a modern, shiny induction worktop, or even a stainless steel gas range. No, my cooking contraption of choice would be a classic British Aga (white or bottle green, please). While actually cooking with it might take some getting used to, I’m already adapted to the look- traditional, cosy country living.
Not that all Aga-bedecked kitchens are cutesy and twee, though. This country classic is also at home in a more modern setting, as some of these photos show.
I love the simplicity and retro feel of this kitchen from Living etc. The massive school clock on the wall is the icing on the cake:
In this room from the same source, the Aga is set into a more traditional nook, though the overall look is still modern. The blue contrast tile and mustard stools add some pops of colour:
This Shaker kitchen, found on house to home, is pure country cute. I like the green tiles, and think that the black range looks modern next to them:
House to home also offers up this space, which at first glance is so not my style. But if you cleared the mantle and subbed another colour tile, I’d be all over this:

There isn’t much not to love in this kitchen from Plain English. The big oak table, farmhouse sink, hanging pot rack- the cream Aga blends in perfectly:
