Spacious Nook

If you've got the room, try a pedestal table. It can seat more people than the typical table, but the real perk is all that extra legroom. It's crucial for easily sliding in and out of the banquette seats.

White and Olive

Mix dark green and brown to make a white kitchen feel cool and earthy. If your nook is by a window or gets a lot of sunlight, you won't have to worry about the dark tones dulling your space.
