Color, color, and more color! This adorable, colorful breakfast nook is a perfect way to start your day, and if the coffee doesn’t wake you up, than the color certainly will.

Inspiration Board: Sunny Kitchen Nook

This rustic buffet in this sunny kitchen nook is made of reclaimed old pine making it a unique center island for the kitchen.

There are two types of wood treatments for a kitchen surface: stained and sealed, if not being used as a cutting surface, or oiled, if the surface will be used as a direct prep station. Incorporating a center island in the kitchen adds another work surface and offers a chance to punch up your look with color or detailing. If space permits, add stools for seating and an overhead pendant light – a great spot for morning coffee, after school homework, or late night snacking!
