I'm completely smitten with the idea of a little breakfast nook. It's the perfect spot to drink coffee and read blogs on the iPad. Or the newspaper if I was in to that. I love that it's such a casual Sunday morning kind of space as opposed to the more formal Saturday night dining room. It feels grown up and masculine but down to earth enough to let my kids sit there too. A settee and pedestal table are a must.
Do you have a little a little breakfast nook? Do you use it every day for meals or does it become just another pile up for bags and mail? I'm completely obsessed with this first image and plan to make it work in my next house.
