I love banquette seating! A great breakfast nook/family dining option that just looks good in any kitchen. Especially in its own little nook with lots of light, and lift-up seats to store kitchen/dining linens.
Lit candles are more than decorative objects, highlighting seasonal festivities and fostering a celebratory mood. Garlands around the door frame beckon guests into the room, and on the mantel sits a pineapple, an early-American symbol of hospitality.
