Maybe translate this same look into an office desk space since I don't have room for a coffee bar? Create a coffee bar like this one with a few open shelving units and a gallon of chalkboard paint.
Like pics in the background of the shelves. Dining tables and bookcases go together like peanut butter and chocolate. :) This great space was designed by Audra Canfield of Designer Fluff- a great source for beautiful pillows.
