The Breakfast Nook

Sunny side Up: Make the most of a single, cheerful color by mixing motifs, such as the chairs’ bold ikat print, the cushions’ tailored piping, and the rug’s classic stripes.

Everyday Art: Find beauty in the ordinary by curating a collection of similar items, like these brightly colored flip-flops framed in Lucite boxes.

Double-duty Built-Ins: Space-saving bench seating is even more efficient when there’s room for storage below.

Outside In: The banquette cushions’ weatherproof fabric can be wiped down with a sponge, making white a safe choice for the dining area.
