Inspiration Snapshot :: Cheerful Kitchen Nook

One of the best ways to make use of an awkward or tight corner in a space is to build a custom bench seat or banquette. This one is awesome for a few reasons - it provides ample seating, extra storage underneath with large drawers and is comfortable with a thick seat and back cushion. If you go this route, a pedestal table works best because it gives maximum leg room. I love the colorful artwork - it really brings the space to life and keeps the overall feeling more on the modern side, don't you think? And the amazing red lantern light fixture with subtle gold accents is the perfect eclectic piece to break up the "matchy" look of everything. The color palette is simple - gray, light blue and magenta, with pops of yellow and red. I don't know about you, but I'd love to enjoy my coffee and breakfast in this bright and airy space every morning! What's your dream kitchen nook / dining area?


  1. What a chirpy spring colour scheme. I agree Julie, it would be a uplifting and cheerful place to start your day.

  2. Oh my gosh - that is beautiful!!
    Much love,

  3. Any time of year this breakfast room would start the day off right.
