Breakfast Room

I have way too many dishes, so I needed storage everywhere I could get it. I thought using place racks as window treatments was a perfect solution. I layered the plates for a added effect.

Is the piece housing additional dishes on right an antique? China Cabinet?

It is an antique French armoire that I had converted to dish storage.

I used a French lantern from Ballard Designs in my breakfast room. It's very large but works perfectly. Paired with the rustic beams on the ceiling and the antique French armoire, it looks like it was made for this sun-filled nook. For a little extra interest and storage, I added plate racks flanking the south-facing windows.

This is the example of the built-in between windows in dining room for displaying china. Maybe shelves not all the same depth or height-- e.g. higher couple are wider and not all tall to accommodate teacup/saucer, cream/sugar bowl, etc.?
