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. Now, a built-in window seat serves as a banquette for a charming breakfast space. The all-white backdrop reflects light and makes colorful pillows and accessories pop.
