Match Your Furniture to Your Artwork à la @katiehodgesdesign
Echoing the colors of the ethereal print hanging above her built-in storage bench, Katie Hodges used a mix of rustic and vintage materials—pale gray cowhide, cognac leather, nubby green-and-white striped upholstery—to create a breakfast nook with character and a very cohesive color story.
Add Layers of Light, Cozy Textures à la @skye_mcalpine
Situated by a tall, slender window, this cozy breakfast corner is the very definition of sun-soaked. Wooden armchairs add rustic charm, pastel layers of chunky knits and cuddly sheepskins keep it cozy, and breezy gauze curtains let the sunshine in. Perfection!
Go Bold or Go Home à la @elizabethhome
Floral print pillows are a classic addition to any interior for spring, but we love that Elizabeth Benedict chose hers backed on a rich navy blue, which contrasts perfectly with the bold tangerine armchair it rests on.
Showcase Organic Materials à la @ryangarvin
These rattan side chairs are definitely warm-weather-ready and may be seen by some as a bit of a decor risk given their tropical leanings. But when teamed with sleek pieces (such as a timeless Tulip table) in an all-white room, they get to be the star of the show—or breakfast nook.
Maximize Light for Maximum Glam à la @designsbyceres
When you have a small space that needs to be BIG on style, don’t let size stop you from incorporating all the glamorous elements your heart desires! This petite breakfast nook proves that crystals, metallic finishes, and mirrored surfaces can all work together in perfect harmony, reflecting tons of light (thank you, oversize mirror!) to make a lasting impression.
Keep It Classic à la @caitlinwilsondesign
The combo of blue and white will always hold a special place in our hearts, and this reading nook goes above and beyond when it comes to showcasing our favorite color pairing. To recreate at home: Take an underutilized window, add a comfy bench, and finish with a bold, blown-out floral wallpaper to turn your once-unused corner into the best seat in the house.
Go for a French Country Vintage Vibe à la @woodgraincottage
Owning a cozy country cottage in pastoral Provence is something many dream of (us included!). Luckily, you can channel that coveted French country aesthetic at home with antique grain-sack pillows and a nubby sisal area rug underfoot.
