What Houzz contributors are saying:

A small addition allowed room for a banquette in the new kitchen bay. “I absolutely love it because it’s casual, and we use it for everything,” says the owner. “We eat three meals there a day, and that’s where the art projects happen. It’s also one of the nicest spots in the house to sit and enjoy the garden.” The efficient banquette features a flip-up bench that offers hidden storage for toys. Pendant lamp: discontinued; bench cushions: custom, Van Galen Upholstery in San Francisco; banquette table: ash wood, custom, Stapp’s Fine Woodworking

13. Make time for breakfast. Back-to-school time often means busier mornings. Make a commitment to carve out time for a real breakfast every morning. It doesn’t have to be complicated — muesli, granola or oatmeal with add-ins like fruit and nuts makes a hearty but quick breakfast. To make things even easier in the morning, try setting the table the night before.Tell us: What’s on your to-do list for September?More:Simple Pleasures: Wake Up and Smell the CoffeeSee more tips to help you personalize your September checklist
3. Blue and yellow. This tried-and-true combo is uplifting and simple to pull off. Use cushion covers in a blue and white print, and paint an accent wall sunny yellow. If your breakfast nook is mostly windows, as shown here, use yellow breakfast dishes instead.

I like this type of breakfast nook - it gives you sightlines you wouldn't get if the wall wasn't bumped out - it doesn't eat into traffic flows in the main room, it maintains the lightflow into the main room, and the benches with table give you a nice place to work
