This bright white breakfast nook shared by My Life in Colour is exactly the type of place you'd want to spend the weekend, right? There's something about this kitchen that feels simultaneously modern and classic, and that interaction of old and new is incredibly charming. It all starts with the wraparound subway tile on the lower half of the walls, which adds character to the space that's still subtle enough to not overtake the smooth white surfaces above. The sliver of a window and its three panes match the lines in the tiles, too, and bring even more light into this corner. Then there's the natural wood shelves — and their homey display of accessories — which complement the killer drop-leaf table and dining chair combination nearby. If you're working with less square footage than you'd like, a drop-leaf table is a great small-space solution because it contributes adjustable function in chic, timeless form. And rounding out this look is a simple gray area rug that blends seamlessly with the calm color palette. In other words, it's the perfect spot for weekend pancakes.
