Surrounded by large double-hung windows, the breakfast nook continues the same airy feel of the kitchen. Painted a pleasingly light blue, the dining table was handmade by a local craftsman. The playful scalloped detail of the table’s skirt is echoed by the edging of the nearby window shade.
The fixed bench, built to resemble the room’s cabinetry, doubles as storage for oversize pots, pans, and small appliances. Its cheery striped cushions tie together the kitchen’s various springlike colors and invite lingering conversations over coffee. Stephanie added other extras like colorful pottery and a large pendant light to give the breakfast area some distinction while still remaining cohesive with the rest of the kitchen.
