A big picture window creates a sunny eat-in nook in this transitional California kitchen. The all-white cabinetry is sleek, modern and topped by thick-cut white marble. Tumbled tile underfoot gives the room a casual vibe, as does the striped fabric on the benches that accompany the picnic-style dining table.
A lowered ceiling and soffit details created a better sense of scale and intimacy in this light and airy kitchen and breakfast nook. The open floor plan provides for the kitchen, dining room and living room to flow seamlessly into one another. Warm brown and beige tones bring a comfort to the rooms.
Situated between the breakfast nook and formal dining room is the butler's pantry, which doubles as a custom bar. The designers wanted the space to feel strong and masculine, so they outfitted the walls with Phillip Jeffries wallpaper that mimics the look of a tweed suit and added a cool, black-and-white treatment to the ceiling.
This kitchen remodel includes a pairing of oak and painted blue cabinets with a white subway tile backsplash and wide plank hardwood floors. Custom reclaimed barn wood storage baskets hang on the wall, showcasing fresh, colorful produce. A cozy breakfast nook provides a cozy casual dining space.
Bold draperies and a peacock blue sofa create an eye-catching vignette in this modern breakfast nook. A tufted velvet settee has a curved design that hugs the oval dining table, and three klismos chairs on the opposite side continue that custom fit without blocking the view. A collection of similarly framed prints adds interest on the walls.
In this 180-square-foot kitchen, Hamilton-Gray Design replaced a built-in breakfast nook with a dining table for two, built around the back and side of the island. Fitting the table-height piece around the counter-height island makes the most of the available space and allows each surface to be at the right height for its designated purpose.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah transformed a dirty and cramped kitchen into a contemporary eat-in space fit for a chef.

A cozy breakfast nook is nestled in front of the bright bay windows for casual family dining.
