White Breakfast Nook With White Table, Colorful Throw Pillows
Before, the dining nook in this cottage was dim and dingy, with dated finishes that failed to take advantage of the room's natural light.

Stationary panels at the French doors finish the room and tie together its taupe and white color scheme.
Built-In Storage Made Functional in Traditional Sitting Room
