My love for food made it easy for me to decide the theme of my very first post.Breakfast nooks are becoming more and more popular these days! I have put together a collection of various nooks that I absolutely adore. Some are big and some tiny and show how we can fit a nook in anywhere if we really want to. These nooks are stylistically different and I hope there is something for everybody.
This nook with its white lacquered Chippendale chairs, stunning white marble round dining table with a comfy window seat is one to love. Both the blue and white pottery and blinds just add to the charm of this space. The starkness of the white is so subtly broken by introducing the orange and pink upholstery! And if you haven’t already noticed that chandelier with the candle lights!
A tucked in wall, dark floors, painted paneled walls, industrial chairs! What a perfect little space to squish in with friends/family. The art on the walls is a great way to personalise the space and make it homely- could even hang some photographs here. And a striking pendant light is always a great way to add some drama to any space!
This is such a brilliant way to convert a tiny corner into a dining area. The linear banquette seating with the ultra modern chair make it a super chic and modern nook. And a round table is ideal for increasing space and softening up the nook. Again the glass pendant just completes the little nook. All fans of modern white interiors are sure to love this one!
This one above is from Nina Dobrev’s L.A house and a great example for light and bright interior lovers. The white herringbone flooring is striking and highlighted with the use of the bold black dining table and brass and copper industrial dining chairs. The peach in the cushions brightens up the nook so well. Also love the black pendant- striking feature and breaks the white of the walls.
This one can serve as as multi-functional space. Ideal for smaller homes or apartments. How ideal can a sofa be for a breakfast nook- eaten too much, can’t move? Just lay on the sofa and digest the food! The large windows bring in so much natural light and almost give the illusion of sitting outside! The cane chairs and the jute pendant bring in the natural essence of the space. Remember accessorizing is key to a perfect space and the basket and fresh flowers are on point here!
Fan of a mix of vintage and modern- then this is something that you will love! The banquette seating in that deep pink makes for easy sitting which is complimented by the rose marble top table with brass tripod base. The chandelier and chair in white modernize the space. And the stunning brass chair makes it ‘oh so glam’!
Seen often now but a few tweaks to a standard design can transform the outcome. The white tongue and groove paneling is highlighted by the olive green upholstery on the cushion seats. The printed fabric livens up the space and makes the nook ever so inviting. That industrial table is brilliantly paired with the country look. It’s a subtle way of combining very different styles and making them work. That pendant light made with glass bottles is genius (on the list of my favourite pendants now) and makes bright nook perky.
Always been a fan of brick walls! Interestingly used in a nook here and the paintings on the wall makes it homely. This is a great example of bringing together many styles that work well together. The industrial wall, traditional chairs and an iron table- all compliment each other and make this a very delightful space.
Space is a growing issue these days and this little nook with the reclaimed wood table and benches is ideal. The slim design makes it possible to squeeze just about anywhere. Using dark paint on the walls and table/benches, contrary to popular belief makes the space appear bigger. Art and brackets on walls are always a perfect way of personalising space and introducing some spirit and colour.
This nook is great for fans of zen interiors. The beautifully finished wood benches,tables and floors make it so serene. Ideal for those who have a house with scenic views. This is a great example for less is more and monotone aced! Some dark ceramic tableware would just complete the look and be so apt in the setting.
This breakfast nook is an eclectic mix of classic, mid century and country styles! Firstly, absolutely love using rugs in a kitchen. Make the kitchen so cozy and homely and adds so much character. The window seat with the big window is very smartly tucked in between two chests and paired up with a classic round table and mid century dining chairs. This little nook is so inviting and cozy.
Fan of scandi interiors? Then this one is for you. Love the use of the black and white floor tiles with the rustic table! Utterly besotted by this nook for two. The white and black chairs to match the flooring is a very interesting way to furnish the space.
This beautiful Parisian inspired nook is one to love. Combining a settee and chairs with dining tables is becoming increasingly popular and for a good reason! Just another excuse to very comfortably sit around for and after a meal. The subtle blue tones of the chairs stand out against the dark hard floors and soften up the space. A bright and impressive nook to end the post.
It was lots of fun putting it together, I hope you all enjoy reading it.
