I love a good breakfast nook. Even the most luxurious mansions call for them. They’re cozy, stylish, and make the most out of large windows with sunlight spilling in. Popularized in the 1920’s, I thought it would be great to highlight them again in the 2020’s. Although breakfast nooks have evolved in terms of space and purpose, the signature use of benches and intimacy in the kitchen is still its trademark.
