t The only thing better than a hot drink corner in your kitchen is a coffee corner that’s only a couple steps away from a sunny table at which you can enjoy your beverage. This cottage-style kitchen has just that, featuring a beautiful white hutch with baskets, mug hooks and some great vintage details, only a few steps from a summery white nook.
