Quaint & Cosy Eating Nook

Maximise seating and storage with a banquette.

Interior designer Cindy Bleeks and husband Ryan Johnson used every inch of their small home. Built-ins were essential to hide this busy family's belongings. The dining area made the most of a small corner with a banquette and a round pedestal table. Moulded-fibreglass chairs are durable and easy to clean. Busy wallpaper is right on-trend and camouflages finger prints.
