Bettina’s Beautiful Breakfast Room, Featuring the Exeter Pendant Light

Decorating, Decorating Inspiration, Inspiration and tagged | | | 55 Replies

We love seeing how Pottery Barn customers are decorating their homes, and when we spotted Bettina Janco’s breakfast room, we fell in love with her cool style and contemporary use of the Exeter 5-Jar Pendant Light. Bettina lives in a suburb of Boston and works in commercial real estate investment and asset management. She loves home decor and creating unique spaces with a twist that incorporate little pops of color, unexpected shapes or accessories and different textures. Bettina is also the creative force behind the fashion and lifestyle blog NeatBit, where she chronicles everyday personal style, as well as her decorating adventures. See what she has to say about her newly decorated breakfast room below!




What inspired you to redecorate this space?

“We moved into our home a few months ago, so we were lucky to have an opportunity to start fresh. The previous owner’s decor was very traditional. We restored the room to a blank slate, which included tearing down some very beautiful window treatments that just didn’t go with the room’s new decor.”




How would you describe your style?

“Transitional. Light and airy, but with a twist —  like little punches of color, unexpected shapes or fun textures.”


What are your favorite elements of the room?

“The mason jar pendant light and zebra rug get lots of compliments.”




Why did you use the Exeter pendant here?

“Alone, the pendant light has a very casual, rustic feel. But when paired with the contemporary table and rug, it helps balance everything out. And I love how the Exeter pendant showcases our filament light bulbs. Those bulbs, in and of themselves, are like works of art.”




What’s your favorite breakfast menu to serve in this room?

“Steak and eggs! We’re always grilling and like to stash away a little bit of steak for leftovers the next morning.”
