I like all of this!

Pretty, cozy and great place for a small group of friends to spend time.

Great decor. Would like either a larger room or a smaller table with a leaf when needed. This room actually seems to be a bedroom in a previous life. It's very well transformed. These are some of my favorite colors!

I like everything in the room but it would look better spaced out.

As someone mentioned, it looks like a repurposed bedroom, I did the same in our first rental home.

 

I would remove all the wallpaper except the nook, use smaller table, remove pink bunny, and drapes.  Some windows just don’t need cover, if it goes back to being a bedroom they can come back.

I think it's a great use of space. But, remove the wallpaper, drapes and perhaps scale down the furniture.

@lolakimono  I like it, even though there is a little too much wallpaper.  I especially like the blue woodwork.

Too much flowery wallpaper! Other than that, it's a pretty room.

First overall impression was very pretty, but upon closer examination, see design flaws.

 

Not sure what this room is in the house.  The dining room or breakfast nook?  Doesn't look much like a breakfast nook, but who knows. 

 

The table is too large for this room leaving very little space for seating.  You'd have to crawl behind the sofa to sit there.  Who'd use it when they weren't eating?  Same with stools, not much room to pull them out from under the table.  So, overall, too much furniture.  

 

Mixing these patterns works since they are in the same color scheme, but flowers are not for me. 

 

Whoever designed this needs to decide what the room should be...for eating or sitting.  It's too small for both.

The chandelier and wallpaper have to go.
