Nooks and Crannies

The other day while perusing the internet I saw the most amazing breakfast nook over at Willow Décor.  How DELICIOUS is this amazing space?!  The light, the space, the airiness, the in-your-face French Country-ness with a hint of traditional.  I just want to sit down with a cup of coffee and a muffin and live there…with a puppy.

It got me thinking about my own kitchen and the lack of eat-in area.  You hear a lot these days about people not using their dining rooms because they use the kitchen…well, I am here to tell you that in my house where space is tighter than the lid of the peanut butter jar after my husband’s had it, we use our dining room.  But that means I don’t have a nook.

But a girl can dream, right?  Check out this gorgeous eat-in kitchen.  The space is pretty open and non-nookish…but those dark custom shelves filled with beautiful serving pieces really help cozy up the place.
