Three Ways: Colourful breakfast nooks

I love breakfast nooks. Fact. There is something cosy and welcoming about them that I always relate to. For me, breakfast is a time to gather one's thoughts for the day ahead and enjoy a moment of calm before the day kicks off. In my little London flat I sit at my dining table to eat each morning but one day I'd love to have the space to create a dedicated area as seen in these three spaces. The first, Circus Brights, is ideal for colour-loving families as it sees cheerful hues paired with weathered wooden surfaces resulting in a stylish, grown up take on a multi-coloured scheme. I love the Scandi feel to this nook, achieved with the tongue and groove panelling and white washed floors and walls. The second space, Citrus Zing, shows how modernistas can add fresh, bold accent hues to even the most stark of spaces. And finally, Lazy Lemon (by far my favourite name of all three!) is perfect when you have a feature you don't want to overshadow. Here, the breathtaking view from the picture windows is framed by a sophisticated palette of cool grey and muted lemon - a real winner in my book! Which of the three do you like best?

  5. We have a silver patterned backsplash similar to the wall in the second photo. I'm loving the effect it has on the room!

  7. In my dream home I am totally going to have a breakfast nook! Full of natural light and an upholstered bench seat. Did I mention its going to have wallpaper too? You've made me start day dreaming Will! xx

  13. hahaha I love the picture on the second setting (the "dishes...." one). I need one of those in my kitchen (I hate doing dishes). My favorite setting is the last one though but overall they're all beautifull.

  14. Love that orange shade in the first pic, but yes I could spend all day in the last one staring out the window.

  15. Oooh the first and the second are my faves. I especially like the yellow stools with the wooden seat. Love the contrast between pale wood and neon yellow. Have a nice evening Will

  16. I love tongue and groove, so the first for me. Though if I had the view in the third I might eat at a picnic table outside.
    I feel you on the lack of breakfasting space in London flats - we are still using my grandpa's folding, baize-topped card table!

  17. ADORE that lost shot... so peaceful and so springlike!

  18. I like the first and the second one best.

    Who thinks that breakfast nooks are an anglo-saxon tradition? I am no expert but I've seen very few of them over here in France.

  19. I dig the first two simply because I adore pops of color and the orange pendant lights are calling my name. The third one is lovely, too. It's chic and serene and the view is great, but I need happy color in my life. Dang, I want a cool breakfast nook.

  20. Oh to have that 3rd view out of my window!! Love the rug in the first one too!

  21. I know myself; sometimes I'd wake up wanting the first nook and other I'd opt for the third one... hmm, maybe in my dream (palace)home I'll have both ;)

  24. I love the Circus brights with the weathered wood, but the 3rd just feels somehow really "right", so I'd probably go for that one!
