Kitchen Nook Progress
Okay guys let’s chat kitchen nook, shall we? For those of you who are loyal readers (thank you, Debbie) you know that I have big dreams for our breakfast nook.
Currently this is the little alcove that sits off of our kitchen.
It’s highly functional with a small West Elm desk, a child’s kitchen, two high chairs and two antique chairs. Isn’t it clean too? My God people, it’s hopeless in there currently. But, I’ve got some big plans. Originally, I wanted a booth along the back wall and on the left hand wall that juts out so I would have an L shaped built in booth.
I had my guys over from B&L Seating who have helped me out in numerous design projects to see what they thought. They felt that the left hand wall was too short for it to be very functional and didn’t think the booth should curve. So now, we’re thinking about doing one long built in bench/booth along the back wall and then nothing on the side wall. I’ll then do a smaller table and people can access the booth from either side.
Next decision comes in with the booth fabric. In my dreams I’d do nice fluffy down pillows in a comfy linen fabric and make it like one giant inviting couch to come sit in while I slave away in the kitchen. Kidding! WHile I drink wine and microwave.
Something Amanda Peetish…
In reality, I have children that would smear red sauce into the fabric faster than you can say “dammit Josie stop that” Trust me, I’ve tried. She is fast. So vinyl it is.
I’m considering cognac
I’m considering seafoam
I’m tiny weeny bit considering patterned oilcloth – is that crazy?
I’ve just always loved this Amy Butler oilcloth pattern (shown below) but I don’t think I’d go through with it.
We’re getting places people. I just thought I should let you know where my heads at, like a nut. Thoughts?
