Nautical Breakfast Nook

Create a laid-back dining area that's family-friendly.

In the breakfast nook off the kitchen of Meredyth and Brad Hilton's cottage, artwork reading, "fish tails told here" sets the tone for this playful space. The floors and bench were given multiple lashings of glossy white paint, while mismatched chairs provide casual, family-friendly seating. The pendant fixture over the table was made by filling a black drumshade with a string of outdoor lights.
