When we first started looking for a new home, there were two major items on my wish list. The home had to have a nook area in the kitchen & a separate dining room. So many of the models these days have done away with dining rooms, which I think is completely absurd. When we finally found our house with both, I was thrilled! My husband and I are definitely not ones to have a super fancy dining area, but I love the idea of having a separate dining space for holidays & get togethers. And I'll be honest, it is just one more room I get to decorate.
I have been on a pinning frenzy lately, trying to find some different inspiration for our kitchen nook. I say nook, but the space is just about the same size as our dining room. My plan is to really keep the space airy with light colors, since our kitchen is going to have maple cabinets & semi-dark granite. The space has a window on one wall & a sliding glass door on the other, so there will be a lot of natural light coming in. On the blank wall across from the sliding glass door, I am planning to do a mini gallery wall with mismatched frames with a mixture of photos & art. I am obsessed with this piece of art & thinking that it will be my key inspiration for the gallery wall & nook color scheme.
For furniture, I am swaying towards either a white or light wood table- I have had my eye on these three tables from Ikea. We are going to take a trip to Orlando soon, to check out the quality & actual size of them. They have lots of different chairs that I plan on checking out as well.
Here are some of my inspirations I found on Pinterest...
I love, love, love the look of chairs with the faux fur draped over it. Mark my word, I will have this in our house. I am not sure what chairs it'll be draped over but it'll look perfect.
I cannot wait for our house to start building- it all truly feels so surreal still. I have never wanted to unpack & be reunited with all my belongings as bad as I do now. I keep remembering all the wonderful things that we already have.
Have any of you found any tables and chairs similar to any in my inspiration pictures? If so, let a girl know !! :)
