French or American? Guess the Country of These Kitchens

Have you had an afternoon snack? Ready for a quiz? We were browsing some French kitchens this morning, sighing over the airy, casual, neutral quality we love about so many of them. But many Americans have adopted this look—and, of course, there are modern kitchens in France. Can you tell which country these kitchens are in? Some of the fixtures and appliances give it away. Maybe even the styling or lighting of the photographs (American magazines tend to have a specific look). But even when we were putting together this gallery, we kept getting confused.

Here are the answers. How did you do? What were your clues?

• 1. French
• 2. French
• 3. American
• 4. French
• 5. American
• 6. American
• 7. French
