Hello! So, we've been in our home for over seven years, meaning it's time to do some work. Our kitchen is ideally suited to having a built-in seating area, so one of our projects will be a banquette. I've been looking for inspiration so I can show my husband what I envision. This is what I've found after a quick search.
The shape of the second bench is what I imagine, but it will probably be glossy white, painted plywood. I will put a bright cushion cover across the seat, with throw cushions for the back. I don't like the vinyl, but I do like the white and bright mix of the fourth photo, and our table is similar to that table. And I'm not really a red person, but the two red banquettes look so cheery to me. I do like the stripes and the natural wood in the third photo. The last photo is a bad scan, but I had to include it because I've been looking for that photo in my old magazines for two days, and I finally found it! I remembered the tulip base with the square top, the banquette, and the whiteness of it. Also inspirational. Our walls are white, cabinets a light natural color, and our countertops almost black. I've only put together one mood board in my life, but maybe I'll make one for this to get my ideas solidified. Thoughts??
