Why we love this pic: Tile on a bathroom wall, sure. But in a dining space? We're listening. Without the black-and-white tile, this breezy breakfast nook, with its midcentury furniture and stunning statement light, would be plenty lovely. However, the tile's bold addition really sets the space apart, bringing striking contrast and a unique feel that transforms the design from lovely to utterly unforgettable.
