Inspiration Fix: Hooked on Nooks

Tuesday, October 28, 2014


An insanely bright and cheery spot in this galley kitchen
I am a huge sucker for breakfast nooks. Ahhhbsessed. I always pictured starting my day in the kitchen, feet up on the table, a cup of coffee in one hand while the other runs through my perfectly blown out hair (future me obviously has a hairdresser roommate - indefinitely) while a dashing fella reads the paper across the way. He starts sentences with curmudgeony things like "Well honey, damn youths these days..." and tries adorably to chat with me about pop culture so I can swoop in and save him from himself. Basically, my fantasy life mimics a 1950s sitcom, except we both jet off from that kitchen to our gigs as separate but equally powerful CEOs...

But, right, back to nooks - I love that an awkward corner or underutilized space can be swiftly transformed into a practical and charming eat-in area in the kitchen. Plus, it's so much easier to throw together than a full-blown dining room - whose life is conducive to an entire room dedicated to eating anyway? 

With a simple tabletop, some seating, and, of course, a few great accessories, these homes have incorporated a great space to come together (even for just a sec) in the kitchen.


This little set of table and chairs is pretty in pink
As always, colorful and eclectic perfection from the team at I Suwanee/Furbish

Legit still daydream about Amanda Peet's nook from her 2012 home tour for Vogue (and those wishbone-back chairs). 
Pattern and color mastery in this nook via vintage connoisseur Lauren Lail (ps again with those chairs).
Brilliant blue accent wall in this cozy space by Chango&Co. (...and...are those wishbone-back chairs again I see? This was actually just a sneaky post all about these magnificent chairs.)
So, meet you all for brunch soon?

Till next time,
Amanda
