A Cozy Breakfast Nook with Banquette Seating
A cozy breakfast nook with banquette seating might be a perfect way to enjoy the most important meal of the day in your new Ken Kelly kitchen. A Wood-Mode breakfast nook like this makes you want to sit and savor your morning coffee while leisurely catching up on the daily news. This home’s traditional kitchen is warm and inviting with custom wainscot paneled walls that are recessed in a Vintage Lace finish. The kitchen mixes a lighter Plantation finish on the kitchen island and refrigerator with a darker Amaretto finish on the surrounding cabinetry. The finish has an added crackle textural element. An interesting mix of door styles includes lighter cabinetry with recessed doors and darker cabinetry with raised-panels. The refrigerator is enhanced with a medallion accent, and the glass kitchen hutch features an “X” medallion mullion. Countertops are Zodiaq in Gallo Michangelo and Marrone Emperador, and the fixtures are from Blanco featuring the Grace faucet. The four-light chandelier is from Trans Globe Lighting. Appliances are by Thermador, and the range hood design includes a custom box-hood mantle. The breakfast nook archway corbels are from Art for Everyday with veneer panels on the arch and seating area. Note: The smaller sized custom table was used for the photoshoot but the actual table for this space is a larger version in the same design.
