After seeing the darling eat in kitchen that I showed you in yesterday's post, I've had breakfast nooks on my mind. Now...most normal people have regular life things on their minds...family, friends, love, work, religion, politics, helping others...I've thought about those normal things certainly...but for an entire day or so I have truly been thinking a lot about breakfast nooks. I know...weird...I know...weird. Welcome to my world.
Anyhooo....in yesterday's post, the home owner chose a round table and adorable cafe chairs to make a stunning breakfast nook space off of her kitchen. After I saw that nook, I wanted to scoop it right up and take it home...there is a problem...I do live in a tiny tiny tiny cottage in the Hollywood Hills so I have no space for a proper eat in kitchen dining area...but that nook got me thinking...could I do the same type of nook with built-in bench seating?
Well, if you are doing your kitchen or trying to figure out how to squeeze a table and chairs into a small cove or nook...here are some ideas on banquette seating!
