A Cheerful Breakfast Nook That Says Good Morning

A Cheerful Breakfast Nook That Says Good Morning

On cold dreary winter mornings I find myself dreaming of a sunny, warm breakfast nook where I can sip my tea from a handmade mug, read the paper, and enjoy a little quiet before the busyness of the day begins. I dream of the warm spring sun streaming through the window and comfortable built-in seating with classic cotton ticking-covered cushions.

My dreamy breakfast nook, images above, details below.

1 Mood Board
2 Amy Butler Wallpaper, Fountain pattern in color Field, $80/roll from Graham & Brown
3 Heirloom-quality Eero Saarinen Tulip Table by Knoll, GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified, 42" diameter in white laminate with white base, $1613.00 from Hive
4 Reclaimed wood, handmade dining chairs from Studio Moe, $800
5 Waverly Timeless Cotton Ticking in Black, $9.98 per yard from Amazon (also available from other online retailers as well as your local fabric store)

6 Wohlert Pendant, 11.8" diameter, $826 from Hive. What's great about this pendant is if you ever remodel or move, it can go with you, easily fitting into a living area, dining room, or hallway. You'll always have a place for it!
7 Custom built-in seating where family can gather or you could stretch your legs and relax.
8 Hand-thrown Mug Chartreuse, $12 from Etsy seller Utile Mud
9 Hand-thrown Bowl White, $12 from Etsy seller Utile Mud
10 Jonquils remind me of spring and I'm dreaming of a warm spring morning, sitting in this nook with nowhere to go.
