Despite my darnedest efforts, we never did end up getting the breakfast nook of my dreams, but you better believe that when this little lady owns a house it will have a big squishy, sunny place designated for breakfast and tea. In the meantime, let's get inspired.
As I'm sure you're aware, there are lots of different ways to do a breakfast nook in your home. Sometimes they even just look like a miniature dining room. However, I've always been a fan of the benched look. To me, it's not really a breakfast nook if there's no bench involved. Bonus points if it's cushioned, but you can always add cushions later. There's just something peaceful about the idea of sitting on a squishy bench with a hot cup of coffee, reading the news on your iPad (cause no one buys newspapers anymore, right). At least that's how I image it. So all of these picks are based on my preference of benched breakfast nooks.
They also have to be sort of small. That's the whole point on a nook isn't it? Bigger than a four seater and now you've got a dinning room again. But hey, I guess some people have enormous families.
I saved my favorite for last. Now this is totally a space I would love. This breakfast nook has it all - squishy seats, small space, and even a view out the window. Now if only I had the space and time ever to make and eat breakfast. A girl can dream right?
