Apparently I've already pinned this, although I have no recollection of doing so. So I'm doing it again because it's absolutely charming! The paper lanterns and natural daylight pouring through the canopy/curtains make this spot look perfectly quaint!
Shelving over window - dark to match the cabinetry & beams, medium to match the floor or white to blend in with the plaster walls? Do last and see what the rooms need. The wrought iron nicely ties into the light fixtures, railing and pulls.
