Two Styles, One Room: Bold Meets Understated

Hello LDV readers!  It’s Rebecca & Paula from Sea Island Drive. Are you loving the new look of La Dolce Vita as much as we are?  We’re thrilled to be back today with the latest installment of our series, Two Styles, One Room. Today we’re looking at a breakfast nook that combines clean, understated lines and fabrics with bold, striking finishes.

We love this kitchen nook for so many reasons, but mainly because no matter how gorgeous the dining room around the corner may be, you are probably going to end up spending most of your time sitting here…and loving it!  This space perfectly demonstrates that keeping things casual doesn’t mean sacrificing style.

Even though there are a lot of statement pieces here, they have kept them simple and understated which keeps this nook feeling casual and inviting.  The simple lines of the cone pendants, the clean banquette and the x-base table are all given an extra bit of oomph by the bold, high contrast finishes.  Two brass pendants, sleek and glossy black banquette, and a rich walnut table are all complimented and emphasized by the simple white cushions.

This room clearly shows you that going bold doesn’t have to mean going crazy, it just means letting every element pop and the best way to achieve that is with understated and clean lines.

I mean, wouldn’t you prefer to eat (and read, and have coffee, and chat…) in this nook even if you had a fabulous dining room just down the hall?  We would!
