I haven’t posted much on our kitchen breakfast nook, mostly because there wasn’t all that much to speak of on the subject. It was fine, but I had put minimal effort into making it anything special.
The original “Before & After” of the space from right after we moved in.
We kept the same cushions from the sellers, never had window treatments, and put up a light fixture I had in my college bedroom and our living in room in Chicago- and while I love the fixture, it wasn’t right for the space.
I had a wee-decorating moment when I moved the entry table desk in here…
…And it is by far the one of the most functional small changes I have ever made, but it still needed a bit mas.
We added roman shades in Peter Dunham’s Fiddle Fig Leaf Natural, and upholstered the bench cushion to match…
Brought in the new most amazingest light fixture- contact us for ordering information.
And decided on doing the large Chicago beach print from Gray Malin– which Pete especially loves as a reminder of his homeland.
I love how homey the space is now. Kitchens can feel so sterile, and having these layers goes a long way to making it a more livable space.

Love the changes! Very homey like you said.
I have seen that light fixture before, but only in a neutral room with pale walls. It looks stunning with the green! Love.
I was the MOST skeptical about the color of the light fixture clashing with the walls.. I would have gone so boring and red and it would have turned into christmastime. BUT you rocked it, it looks so so good. I can’t wait until the day I have a Gray Malin in my home!
I love that the colors are an unexpected twist of fun! Adore the light fixture.
This is outstanding. Bravo!!!
I love the changes you made! The window treatments and cushion make such a huge impact. Between them and the new light fixture, the space seems so much more open, bright, and welcoming!
Gorgeous! I’m obsessed with green right now, so the whole thing speaks to me (especially the fabric- what a beaut!).
I really like! All of those greens are just beautiful. Good call on the light fixture.
I love this Bailey! That Fiddle Fig fabric is such a good compliment to the wall color, and of course I love Gray’s print. Also love the chairs even though I know they were there before! Bravo lady!
You never cease to amaze me! You are killin’ it lately with the before and afters! Thanks for all of this design goodness. 🙂 Love the new fixture over the table.
This is Amazing!What is the finish on the wall and the trims?As always, thanks 4 all the design inspiration.
Great job! I’m loving how that space is coming together after each update. That light fixture is perfection.
wonder what the name brand of that paint. love the shade! cozy corner indeed.
The change is significant. It amazes me what you accomplish with shades, a cushion, a light fixture, and art. This is why I follow you. Fantastic.
Looks fabulous! Where did you get those chairs? I am looking for some similar to that but can’t find a decent, non-restaurant supplier!
