Lately we've been admiring the Instagram  feed of Parisian stylist/blogger  Lucille Gauthier-Braud . We're particularly fascinated by her eat-in-kitchen, which, though located in the Marais, looks straight out of the French countryside. Three years ago, Lucille and her husband, Charles overhauled their apartment, knocking down walls to allow for a large open space for cooking and gathering. The addition of a verrière, a skylight, adds lots of natural light. Here are the design elements to create your own Parisian kitchen au naturel.  Photography by Lucille Gauthier-Braud . Above: The couple installed an Ikea  Grytnäs  kitchen—counters, cabinets, and a sink—and personalized it. A stainless steel plate rack and Smeg gas range with a stainless backsplash add an industrial element to the warm space. Lucille made the pendant lamps herself.  Above: The Ikea  sink and birch countertop  are fronted by a large window. The counter soaps are from Aesop and  Harvey Nichols . Above: The sideboard is an antique from Nantes, and the vintage Italian lamp on it is by Guzzini. Above: The large Glass Flower Vase is from  Merci , and the candles are by  Diptyque . As for the fridge-side assemblage, Lucille says: "I collect brushes and brooms everywhere I go; I buy one in every country I visit.".  Above: An old harvest table is paired with vintage white Fanett dining chairs by Finnish architect Ilmari Tapiovaara.  Above: A still life of candles and leafy sprigs corralled on a white plate.  Key Elements   Above: The couple installed Ikea's Grytnäs kitchen cabinets, which are no longer are available.
