I will admit that at this point of the summer in New York City, I am yearning for a country escape. I envy every small town and hamlet dweller who counts more birds as neighbors than people, whose gardens are big and wild, whose local bodies of water are more swimmable than the Hudson river. 

Maybe there will be a weekend escape in my future, but in truth, I won’t be leaving  asphalt-ridden New York for much longer than for a a couple of days any time soon.  So I find my little bit of country in the ways I can—and in the kitchen, that means a strict refusal of all things sleek and modern. I love a country kitchen: mismatched stoneware, wicker baskets, slabs of pine underfoot, and well-worn white linens. Of course, country kitchens can be as varied as those I’ve seen in New York City. To me, though, a farmhouse aesthetic is all about natural materials and unfussy fixtures; it has none of the glossy store-bought newness of a modern kitchen. If you’re feeling a similar pang for the country, here are a few things you can score to capture the look, no matter where you are.
