Fresh Breakfast Nook
A bay window provides the perfect spot for a versatile dining area. A velvet-covered banquette gives kids a place to pile in, while stools and a chair can be arranged in infinite variations depending on the crowd. Photography by Jean Alsop

Dark and Heavy
Before designer Dana Wolter worked her magic, the breakfast nook had a heavy, dated look, with a wrought-iron chandelier, bulky wood table and blah bamboo blinds.

Warm finishes like the island’s limestone counter give the family kitchen a sophisticated but easily maintained look.
Cabinets painted a dark taupe contrast with creamy white walls. Sheer Roman shades over the sink soften the modern fixtures.
