It lays in a white presence and the pops of colors set off the modern, retro vibe with an easy ease. Not to mention that toaster adding even more vintage flair.

A bit more of a traditional design, this corner is cozy and welcoming. The leather, tufted seat adds that retro style we all love as does the table. Paired with the rest of the room it easily blends with a homey house with all the stylings of a comfortable corner.

Pastel hues and a nod to the cafe or diner that’s been down the street for years, this is a fun little breakfast joint that you’ll enjoy any part of the day. The cool blues, the polka dots … it’s all very 1950’s without becoming too kitschy or dull. Of course, the “cafe” wall art helps with the subtleties as well.
