Carole Middleton's farmhouse-core kitchen might be our favourite new interior design look that we want to replicate.

When it comes to kitchen trends, there are various styles that go in an out of fashion. However, Carole and Michael Middleton's farmhouse-style space is one that can never truly go out of style, evoking a homely warmth that provides a cosy countryside feel . Picking up on some of the major interior colour trends of 2024, Kate Middleton's parents combined warm cream tiling with other neutral shades on the walls to make a cohesive style that seems clean but rustic.

A rare glimpse of the Middleton's kitchen was revealed in a video posted by James Middleton's dog food brand Ella & Co. The video was published back in August 2020 when James and his now-wife, Alizee Thevenet, were spending lockdown at Carole and Michael Middleton's home, Bucklebury Manor. In the video, James was joined by his black spaniel Ella as he spoke about apples and how beneficial they can be for dogs and humans.
