Small eating areas

Lately I've been thumbing through my copy of Domino: Book of Decorating that I was lucky enough to win on EmilyStyle a few months back. I'm really excited to move in to my new apartment next month but a little worried about its small galley-style kitchen.
Although completely different styles, both of these photos suggest ways to utilize a small eating area. I love the idea of stools that could tuck under a small table(first photo) and the open shelves above the dining area(second) that allow for extra storage. Both very clever ideas.
The Domino book itself is pretty great, by the way, and I can see myself getting a lot of mileage out of it when I graduate school and get a larger place.

Both found in the Domino Magazine flickr pool

i love those kind of tables. but my kitchen is even too small for that! i think those photos look awesome though. you'll have to keep us updated on what you decide.

I love the wall covered in pictures. I got this book for christmas last year and love thumbing through it. Have a good day.

Both of those options look good to me, it's just going to be hard to choose between them!

Thank you! I have been looking for a photo wall like this for my apartment - perfect!
I miss Domino.

Oh, I've been looking for something like this to do! I think I'll try framing my Holga pics! Thanks!
