Wednesday Inspiration

Hello Wednesday!  Half way through the week already…geeze!

I’ve been scouring the internet for weeks now for inspiration and confirmation that I want need to build out a really special little nook for this space in my eat in kitchen (or as we refer to it in the new Casa, the tiniest formal dining room attached to a kitchen ever).And since it’s connected to my kitchen and the kitchen is part of my One Room Challenge, I thought I’d share with you some of what has me dreaming big.

Here’s what we’re working with now (no frills…full disclosure):

breakfast nook chaos

As you can see, there’s a LOT going wrong here.  We’ve only been in the house for 4 weeks and I haven’t found a table I’m in love with yet.  I’m also in desperate need of storage space for things like my china, cook books and random kitchen items that should usually be hidden away somewhere but I’m out of hiding places!

As for the nook, I want something special…something that distracts you from the fact that there is no formal dining room here.

Something like this via Apartment Therapy:

Or even something more playful like this via Pinterest (source unknown)

Given the fact that we would like to  eat, draw, work, play and just plain old relax in this space, I could see this, no problem.

What do you think?  Any other suggestions?

I’d love to hear!
