Pewter is actually an alloy made up of several metals. It is fairly soft and not as sturdy as say, stainless. It will show nicks and dents so one must take some care when working on this surface. It has a beautiful look and offers a more gentle look as in contrast to the more clinical look of its stainless counterpart. Pewter’s dark silvery color is muted and is not brash like chrome. Because it is a softer material it is easily shaped and stamped. A hammered antique look would mask some of the natural dents and dings that naturally occur on many kitchen surfaces. While the look of pewter is more of a traditional one, it could look right at home in a more modern or eclectic setting.
Lastly, when decorating your breakfast nook, remember that it does not necessarily need to look like an extension of your existing kitchen décor. As long as it complements the rest of the space, it’s okay to add different colors, patterns and textures to give the space its own identity. In the end, your breakfast nook should be the perfect place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a good book.
Breakfast is often cited as the most important meal of the day – and for good reason. It’s a jump-starter that provides the fuel you need to make it through your busy morning until it’s time for lunch. If you’re like most, you have just enough time to grab a granola bar or other similar food-on-the-go before heading out the door. However, by creating a cozy breakfast nook in your home you may be more apt to sit and savor your chosen breakfast meal each and every morning.
