Stylish and functional cottage kitchen and breakfast nook!

The color palette in this breakfast nook looks fresh, feminine and pretty. I love how fun and interesting the wall gallery looks with the combination of framed artwork and faux antler wall plaques.

The gorgeous coral camelback sofa becomes an instant focal point in the breakfast nook with its bright and bold color. The unexpected combination of modern zig zag upholstery on the classic French chairs provides an interesting visual dynamic.

The addition of beautiful classic herringbone pattern backsplash is a great way to add texture and interest in a simple kitchen.

Lucite bar stools are incorporated into the small kitchen to avoid taking up visual space and again, injecting a dose of modern flair into this classic kitchen.

A built-in pantry with double door is designed to echo the look of the side-by-side refrigerator to achieve symmetry.


  1. Love the almost chevron patterned chairs, and the collection of cake stands on top of the pantry - brilliant.

  2. I love this house! I can actually see myself living in it! :) And that's the best kind you can hope for. I especially love the coral couch.

  3. That nook is so dreamy! I could just see myself spending hours there, dreaming, reading, eating and dreaming some more. The most beautiful room I've seen all week!

  4. Beautiful post
    I love the element of surprise in the breakfast room with the addition of the camelback sofa
    and that chevron patterned tilework is very clever

  5. I love the gallery wall in the first image. I actually just ordered one of those flamingo prints.. can't wait to hang it up!

  6. Love the 1st nook. The color combo is wonderful and I am a huge fan of chairs!

  7. That artwork is lovely! I own one of those flamingo prints myself made by Alison of Eastwitching on Etsy. She creates the most gorgeous prints!

  8. The herringbone backsplash is an inspired idea. I may have to file that one away for future reference. xx

  9. Loving the breakfast nook its very cosy yet fresh & bright a lovely place to start the morning. I am really liking to love the colour coral & it looks fantastic against the black & white zig zag chairs it brings a fun pop of colour to a plain room
