Farmhouse Style Breakfast Nook Reveal

This quaint little breakfast nook, with a nod to farmhouse style, actually came together rather quickly. It wasn’t even on my decorating radar for 2016, but then we decided to sell our home… and plans changed.

What an unexpected surprise, because we are loving this space in our home. Loving it not just for looks, but for how functional it is, as well. We typically eat breakfast in here, and sometimes lunch. It’s convenient for when the kids want a snack or if I’m drinking a coffee while working on a project.

The light pours in from the window, which makes it a great space to work. The industrial pendant light was found at a local Lexington shop called Street Scene. We’ve got a similar light hanging in our Entry Way. If I recall correctly, I believe the lights are made locally, as well.

The light’s style is a perfect contrast to the vintage, turned-leg, drop-leaf table. This table was actually my grandparents at one point and my mom has given it to me {on loan} in order to stage our home for selling.

In typical farmhouse style, the chairs don’t match. The black in the traditional Windsor-style chairs is repeated in the wall decor. I hung a wooden growth chart on the wall which is both functional and decorative art. It has already been used as a fun photo prop, which I’ll be sharing soon.

The other side of the window is an Instagram photo display that I created from a vintage yardstick. Sometimes decor magazines and experts give us the impression that family photos aren’t curated enough for our walls. Instead, I believe that there is no reason not to display family photos in your home. In fact, are we creating a home if our family isn’t shared in the decor?

The curtains are from a flea market in Lexington. I love them and their vintage floral goodness. They will be going with us to our next home. I’ve literally looked forward to the day when they would be hanging up against a neutral painted wall, instead of plaid wallpaper {see the before photo in this post}. They can shine, now. Maybe I’m being dramatic about these curtains?

Maybe not.

On the other wall is both a personal favorite and a best seller in my Shop. The Initial Wreath Print features both black and gold with our family name.

This little nook looks so cute!! I love the farmhouse look, and I agree wholeheartedly with the family pictures. I have them all over my apartment, because it helps make a house feel like a home.
