You guys are pretty familiar with the breakfast nook by now…I featured it first a little less than a year ago for Friendsgiving with the original paint and wall shelves. And then it got a little spruce up for this end-of-the-school-year party. I lot of you followed the progress on Instagram 🙂 We’re still making changes in here but we’re soooo close to being finished![Read more…] about My Home | The Breakfast Nook
We have the cutest little reading nook in our house on the second floor landing. After putting the kids down at night, I like to lay there and read a bit while I wait for them to settle down for the night. It’s such a great spot and has a nice view of the surrounding hills. It’s also a great little perch for watching the sun set. I’m not the only one who loves to sit there though, Arden loves curling up there with a good book too. In fact I often find open books propped just so…in fact the book in these pictures was left there by her and I figured I’d leave it for the photos!

Today’s sophisticated and cozy office nook is by Jenny Wolf Interiors.
For the majority of us who don’t live in homes with original architecture and period details, there is a great (and cheap!) DIY for the brick wall. Amazingly enough, Lowe’s and Home Depot both carry faux brick panels, which can then be easily “aged” with paint using this as a guideline–just wipe off as much paint as you can to help let the original red hues peek through. You could probably also use a textured sponge to add more of that crumbly look to the brick.

Full disclosure, this is not how I would design a nook, though I would certainly use any of these pieces in the right situation (suspender lady, come live at my house). Mixing blue Chinese lamps with yellow garden stools and black geometric pillows is just not my aesthetic or my forte, and I am always excited to find rooms that somehow make such disparate things come together in a real good way. Truly, taking a peek into other peoples’ brains is one of my favorite things about art in general but specifically home design. The places we live can be such wonderful reflections of ourselves, and I’m constantly amazed and inspired by unique spaces like this. Enjoy!
