We spend a lot of time in our kitchens and think they should be beautiful! This kitchen features antique white cabinets with brown and black granite, and copper lanterns (the lanterns are actually outdoor lanterns, but their scale works well over this eat-in breakfast bar). We hit HomeGoods for canisters, cutting boards, and other storage and decor pieces to finish off the space. Sponsored by HomeGoods

Use the back kitchen for everything breakfast. Tea, coffee and toast making. Cereal getting and all the cutlery and dishes that get used at breakfast. Then you do not mess your main kitchen until the serious cooking starts later in the day.
