HOW TO STYLE A BOho-chic breakfast nook
Bring life into your space with a natural color palette of green and neutrals.

Fill up the rest of the space with chic gold seating, a tray full of vintage-looking glassware, and a potted plant, obvi.

how to decorate a minimalist breakfast nook
With warmer weather just around the corner, it’s time to give the traditional monochrome look a fresh take with trendy tribal patterns, luxe metallic accessories, and speckled dishware. Bring the outdoors inside with a potted plant in the middle of your table or with a black geometric vase full of fresh blooms. A round mirror will bring light into a darker breakfast nook, while a flokati rug will keep your toes nice and warm while you sip on your morning coffee.
