A bright breakfast nook

We are pretty excited about a breakfast nook that we just created for a client. She had the brilliant idea of converting an ugly and awkward utility room next to her kitchen into a cozy eating area. After she had wood floors installed and a custom bench built in, we took over.

Mati's art

We created a bold palette of yellow and aqua and ran with it! It was tricky to find the right size table that could withstand the wear and tear of grandkids, but after much searching we ended up discovering one meant for commercial use. The fact that it was offered in yellow showed us that it was meant to be!

As usual, artwork features significantly in the space. We ordered the two pieces above the bench from Serena & Lily (they have a well curated art selection!). The bright bird and boat paintings are by our studio mate, Mati Rose McDonough.

This nook reiterates an important lesson: don’t overlook forgotten spaces in your home. You never know what they can become!
