Our breakfast nook has a special place in my heart. It's where my family gathers every morning for breakfast. As a home based business, it's where the CCT team gathers for lunch. And at the end of the day, it's where my family regroups with a glass of wine. Our nook gets beautiful light throughout the day and has a welcoming and casual vibe that beckons you. Writing this right now from my office, I'm wishing I were writing this post from the nook, ha! There's just something special about this little space in our home.
And did I mention Taos, our toy pomeranian, also loves it?
As you can imagine, the nook gets a lot of traffic. Truth be told, it doesn't regularly have coffee table books so perfectly styled on the table. And speaking of styling, since it's such a busy zone, I decided to keep things as simple as possible and keep the styling to a minimum. Which is why I chose a pair of our BRIDGE / Black Natural square pillows for the built-in bench. They make a big visual impact without a ton of pillows taking up too much space, or requiring too much maintenance (pillow chopping takes time, people!).
I also used our BRIDGE / Black Natural lumbar pillow and TITIK / White Natural lumbar pillow on the pair of rope chairs for back support. No one wants to cozy up to scratchy woven rope, no matter how pretty it looks! Am I right?
And while I'm absolutely in love with our nook as-is, it's also a fun and less intimidating project to redesign as they years go on. I can already imagine doing a bold DARK wall, swapping the round tables for a longer rectangular one, and adding a splash of color with the pillows. After all, our collections are designed to work effortlessly across aesthetics, whether the space is a neutral haven, coastal sanctuary, traditional setup, or happening spot.
