Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - Breakfast Nook

The custom half-circle window in the eating area is a unique focal point that drowns the kitchen in morning light and gives uninterrupted views of the backyard. The wall in front of the window was doubled, so that the surrounding sheetrock could be returned into the window with a rounded corner bead. This, combined with the arched entry and barreled ceiling, gives the area a real Colonial feel, as if it was original to the home. The built in bench provides extra cozy seating.

Thank you! This eating area is approx. 10' x 9'. It's a favorite spot of ours! Good luck with your project. Please let me know if I can help you in any other way! Ellie

Oh boy. Hope you got a great deal! You'd have to go to a glass fabricator I think. There is a hinged door in one of the panes that allows you to change the bulbs. Go to the RH website and zoom into the picture as much as possible for the company who fixes it for you to copy. Good luck!

I love this pendant, but RH's was a bit pricey. Found this one that was much more affordable: http://lightingconnection.com/products/adams-victorian-pendant

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A custom half-circle window was installed in the breakfast nook. The window makes the space feel larger by providing a view straight into the backyard and allowing plenty of morning light to filter through. A built-in bench provides extra seating and makes the space feel cozy. Table: Montego Dining table in black, Pottery BarnChairs: Aaron Wood Seat Chair in black, Pottery BarnPendant: Victorian Hotel Pendant in polished nickel, Restoration Hardware
