Breakfast Nook in Window Bay
Metal chairs with whimsical designs in the ironwork offer seating on one side of a marble-topped table in this California breakfast room. A built-in banquette in the bay window provides seating on the other side. Roman shades in a bold black and white stripe make a statement on the windows.
This traditional open-concept kitchen and dining space features dark wooden tones and classic touches. Pendant lights and an elegant chandelier divide the two spaces, from the high-back armchairs around the formal dining table to the large kitchen island with cushioned leather seats.
A burnt orange Oriental area rug brings bold color to this traditional dining room. Classic furniture from the table and buffet to the spectacular china cabinet, which houses the family's crystal, is paired with antique decorations and art.
Open Concept Kitchen And Dining Room With White Cabinets And Work Island
This open concept kitchen features traditional white cabinets and trim, white quartz countertops, a work island with sink and gooseneck faucet with pendant lights, and barstool seating, as well as a breakfast nook with round table and upholstered chairs.
Dining Table With Place Settings and Apple Centerpiece
At a large table (this one seats eight) consider using several small centerpieces rather than a single grand one. Here, a glass bowl filled with crabapples creates a low centerpiece while silver cups brimming with peach rosebuds add color and interest to each place setting.
