Mismatched Seating Adds Playful, Casual Vibe to Beach House Breakfast Nook
Mismatched seating adds to the playful, casual vibe in this beach house breakfast nook. The natural materials used for the bench and chairs is balanced out by the mint green end chairs and bright yellow, lantern-style pendant lights.
With crisp white walls and cabinetry and a pale blue tile backsplash, it's like a breath of fresh air swept through the kitchen making it a pretty, welcoming place. A slab of white marble overhangs the island creating a handy spot to grab a snack or hang out with the chef.
Custom floating reclaimed shelves flank the farmhouse apron sink and play off the walnut kitchen island top while creating a textural contrast against the polished tile wall. Where the three vintage-style pendants now hang, there was a large wall closing off the entire kitchen. Demolishing the wall gave an opportunity to marry the two spaces and allow for bar seating.
A natural backdrop of greenery is picturesque for this gorgeous outdoor farmhouse table. Decorated with glass, pastel florals and neutral cushions and tablesettings, this backyard is a comfortable place to sit, eat and converse with friends.
This light and bright kitchen features white Shaker style cabinets and glossy countertops paired with bold color accents, like the glass tile teal backsplash and metal yellow pendant lights. Orange and white floral upholstered chairs are positioned around the spacious kitchen island.
To give this kitchen the farmhouse look its owners wanted, designers paneled the dishwasher and refrigerator to blend them in with the cabinetry. The sink got a concrete apron front and the cooktop a plaster hood. The island's "X" completes the mood.
Install simple cup hooks to store your lovely teacups, instead of stacking them. Hooks not only keep delicate china out of harm’s way, but they are an easy way to add another dimension to your kitchen decor. In this butler’s pantry in Susan Sully’s book, “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques," the hooks allow you to see the decorative details inside each cup that would have otherwise been hidden.
