cheery breakfast nook makeover
A tiny all-white corner gets a stylish wake-up call.

Take a good look at this “before” photo. Does it look or feel familiar? All too bare. A little lonely. What happens when an all-white space with a whole lot of potential gets some much-needed attention? A magical makeover. And this “after” shot is proof of it. See how an all-star decorator put an assortment of Laura Ashley products to work to recreate this space.
Enter Kristin Jackson of The Hunted Interior, a designer with a sharp eye and a gift for dreaming up and creating stylish setups. Jackson was prepared to reimagine this corner with ingenuity, creativity, and a gorgeous array of Laura Ashley products and fabrics. Her inspiration board reveals her true vision: a combo of patterns (florals and polka dots) paired with modern elements.
Farewell white walls. When it comes to thinking outside the typical decorating box, Jackson is the go-to girl. She brightened up the walls by creating and hanging panels using Laura Ashley’s pretty pastel wallpaper.
There’s nothing like carving out a daydreaming corner for wasting away a summer morning. Jackson chose a Laura Ashley’s polka dot fabric for the cushioned bench and dressed the windows with Laura Ashley’s floral patterened window treatments. Oh, how we love hydrangea.
Don’t ever doubt the power of the small-space. This transformation proves that a tiny corner has the power to inject energy into the rest of your home. Jackson demonstrates just how far you can take florals by mixing patterns together. Pulling colors from one piece allows the space to feel layered, not so matchy-matchy. To keep this room grounded, Loloi’s rug in a neutral shade of gray is the ultimate finishing touch.
