Breakfast Nook Refresh In Modern Farmhouse Style

Being at home more means we are getting to enjoy this refreshed kitchen space every day. We are sipping coffee here, reading books, watching my children do dances/shows, and eating together at this table. Spaces are most lovely when they are functioning well for the people who live there. And this updated nook is doing just that.

I fell in love with all the pieces I received from Bed Bath & Beyond. When I first starting putting this space together, I knew that I wanted it to be casual, warm, and inviting. To fit nicely with the rest of our kitchen, I also choose a neutral color palette with subtle splashes of green. (For your convenience, don’t miss the full product list at the end of this post.)

The Bee & Willow™ collection at Bed Bath Beyond offers a beautiful blend of farmhouse and cottage vibes, plus it has a huge selection of neutral furniture, dishware, serving ware, flatware, and decorative items. (Not too long ago, we did a makeover in our master bedroom using Bee & Willow pieces that you can see here where I share must-haves for a dreamy bedroom.) Now let’s get started on this breakfast nook transformation!

I hate I didn’t get the rug and two chairs that were filling this space before, but we moved it out so quickly I was too excited to think about it haha! But, you can at least see how there was a ceiling fan. For a while, having two chairs in this space felt like it was the right way for this space to function. My husband and I would sit in them, drink coffee, and sometimes our children would too.

Here was the problem: they had started to become eye-sores from heavy use and this space wasn’t fully functioning for our family. Yes, we enjoyed sitting in the chairs but that was about it. And only two of us could do so at a time.

At night, when dinner was ready we found ourselves squeezed in around the kitchen island because we just do not use our dining room as an everyday space. I knew for some time, taking out the chairs and putting a table with chairs in this space would bring our family together in more ways than one. And that it did!

Let’s talk about this Distressed Farmhouse Dining Table found here. How beautiful is the finish on this table? It is neutral and in line with the modern farmhouse style. Plus it was the perfect size for this space, not too small and not too big. It easily fits the six of us around it.

These amazing Bee & Willow™ Home Windsor Chairs found here, are so comfortable! They fit perfectly to the table’s height as well. These come in a few different colors; mine are black. I am loving how the white table contrasts beautifully with the black chairs.

I’ve always wanted a bench for a dining room table, and this Bee & Willow™ Home Slipcovered Dining Bench caught my eye. I cannot tell you how wonderful this bench has been, and I love it paired with the chairs and table. To make things even more inviting and cozy, I added the Bee & Willow™ Home Soutache Embroidered Square Throw Pillow in White found here and the Bee & Willow™ Home Yarn-Dyed Square Throw Pillow in Grey/White found here.

Not only did we fall in love with our new breakfast nook furniture, but also the dishware, drinking glasses, table setting pieces, and more. Bee & Willow had so many pieces to chose from. To start with, these Bee & Willow™ Home Willow Chargers found here, work seamlessly with this farmhouse look. So do these Bee & Willow™ Home Milbrook 16-Piece Dinnerware Set in White found here. Our whole family is in love with the bowls, mugs, and plates from this set. They feel very nostalgic. Remember that splash of green? Check out these Bee & Willow™ Home Milbrook appetizer plates in Green Plaid found here. Love the plaid!

We inherited a set of flatware from my family’s cabin that we have loved. The only hiccup is that they cannot go in the dishwasher! We had been on the hunt for some that were dishwasher friendly and in line with our casual, farmhouse style. This Bee & Willow™ Home Milbrook Satin 20-Piece Flatware Set found here matched our needs perfectly. My husband remarked the first time he used them, he loved them. When guests come over, we will plan to use this Bee & Willow™ Home Milbrook Wicker Flatware Caddy in Grey found here.

Any dining glasses description that has the word “romantic” in it, must be pretty…right?! These Bee & Willow™ Home Romantic Water Glass found here had me the moment I pulled them out of the packing box. Can you tell how amazing they are? And, I am using those Bee & Willow™ Home Millbrook Olive Wood Serve Board (Set of 2) found here as an alternative to a tray. They are great for serving food on but also for creating a centerpiece base as I did here.

Hello, beautiful chandelier! Do you remember where we started? Before there was a ceiling fan, which made sense for a sitting area but not for a dining space. This Bee & Willow™ Home Francesca Chandelier in White found here is stunning. And, you will not believe the price! It truly is a statement piece in this nook.

Lastly, if you checked out my master bedroom post I mentioned earlier, you may have noticed this rug looking familiar. It is the Bee & Willow™ Home Fireside Jute Braided Rug found here that is not only great farmhouse style but soft to walk on for a jute rug and disguises stains and traffic wear so well. It is definitely one I recommend for all kinds of spaces in your home.

What do you think? It was so easy to create a warm, casual, and modern farmhouse look with these Bed Bath & Beyond pieces. Not only was there lots of variety to choose from, but it is all very budget-friendly. We are loving the time spent here in this space. We’re making great memories in part because of how well it functions. Do you have a favorite piece?
