Ar­range a few co­or­di­nated pieces in a small space, and voilà— a break­fast nook is born.

Ace of space. Se­lect a cubby or side area in the kitchen that will com­fort­ably ac­com­mo­date at least two peo­ple—large bay and bow win­dow ar­eas are per­fect spots.

In­ven­tive adap­ta­tion. Think be­yond the tra­di­tional dinette, es­pe­cially in a par­tic­u­larly tight spot. In­stead, em­ploy a small mul­tiuse drop-leaf ta­ble, which can be moved else­where, if nec­es­sary, and will still blend in seam­lessly with your home’s decor.

De­light­ful de­tails. Po­si­tion a small chan­de­lier di­rectly above the nook and punc­tu­ate the win­dows with a pretty valance and pan­els for a co­he­sive, co­or­di­nated look.

Patty and her grand­daugh­ter Eleanor share a few laughs while har­vest­ing blooms from the gar­den.
