breakfast nook

A lot of houses we have seen come with the so called recipe desks in the kitchen area. I feel women being under appreciated of doing their paperwork close to the kitchen while the men can enjoy their full own room with closed doors. But that is me – please do not feel offended…

In our house this desk is once more a built in among the others that would rather take away flexibility than being helpful – for our lifestyle that is.


The first agreement I made with my husband on closing day was: this one had to go!


We love how it opens up the whole area and will give us so many more options  to use this space now. Either for art…



These wooden artsy people represent our family. We had them screwed to the wall in our previous homes but later the artist Ingrid Wild came up with the idea of those metal feet. Now they really are 3D art and can be moved around easily. One night I came home from the movies with this little red card saying ” Love your movie theatre”. Changing only the letter “O” to an “D” was changing the meaning to “child”. Love your child! Made a lot more sense to my son  – he had to correct it immediately. We then attached it with kitchen string to our wooden family. Voilà!

The other option we are contemplating would be to create a banquette seating or add a sofa as part of our overall concept for this area. We call it the “communication area” it would involve more than the seating.


The green settee is from Horchow. And then add some other seating options plus side tables like these from Westelm. Better even, have some custom built banquette seating with very cool fabric.


What would you do with this area? I would love to hear your ideas in the comment section!

  1. Love the Blanco granite composite sink you chose for the kitchen. I used the same brand for a rental remodel two years ago. My first sink arrived with cracks in two corners so there must be an issue with shipping. However, the second sink arrived without a problem and is holding up very well. Love the way it looks – doesn’t stain or scratch. When I need a new sink in my own home, that is what I will use.
