A Formula for the Perfect Breakfast Nook

My favorite part of the Room of the Week is the breakfast nook at one end.  Even though it’s not built-in it has that custom feel.  Add in that beautiful patterned fabric on the chairs, the pretty leaning artwork, and the chalkboard on the wall and this space is interesting and inviting and the perfect spot to share a meal.

Built-in cabinetry and benches can be costly, so if you are looking for that built-in look without that expense or labor, take some cues from this room.Lessons from the Perfect Breakfast Nook  | www.theanatomyofdesign.com

Nicole, the brilliant designer behind this kitchen actually purchased those dressers secondhand and refinished them for this spot…aren’t they the perfect fit?!

Here are a few more examples using the Room of the Week as my guide and formula for creating the perfect breakfast nook.
