setting up house: the café area

*This post contains affiliate links.*

In the new house there is a small breakfast nook/café spot behind the family room area. This was probably the first area where I had the design pretty nailed down in my head. I knew I wanted it to feel crisp, and clean. When I saw these pics I knew I was pretty much done looking.

In the past for whatever reason I had not been a big fan of the Saarinen tulip table, but in this context it just worked for me. I especially liked it paired with the lucite chairs. I’ve already ordered this set of four from Poly + Bark. I’ll update here with a review once I’ve set them up and tried them out.

As far as art work, I knew I wanted something big on the wall behind the table. I loved this pic from Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess, and immediately wanted the photo print behind her sofa.

This is my mock-up of this spot so far:
