Symmetrical Space A pair of built-in benches and a narrow dining table create an elegant look in this small breakfast nook. Boldly patterned seat cushions add visual weight to the all-white nook and adjoining kitchen. A dainty light fixture overhead boosts visibility after the sun goes down without overwhelming the tiny space.
