So it’s a really weird quirk that I have, but I don’t really like chairs. Let me explain. I like chairs but I only like super comfy large chairs. Someone described me yesterday as a cat. Ready to cozy up any chance I get. I think that’s why I don’t like chairs. As I sit in a standard chair right now, I also realize that I would get nothing done if I were in a lazy boy. Such is life.
Why do I love kitchen nooks? Well for the first obvious reason, it eliminates most chair situations. Secondly, it is just a cozy way to create another sweet zone in your space. I would rather have someone hanging out in my comfy ol’ kitchen nook while I cook then be super uncomfortable sitting in an upright chair. Why do I hate chairs so much. I think it has to do with yoga too. I would rather be in a lotus position sitting on the floor. Ok, enough about me. Let me show you some awesome kitchen nooks:
Flea Market Trixie shares with us a beautiful, cozy, shabby chic inspired kitchen with an incredible nook. First off, let’s say hallelujah to the refurbished furniture and I’m not sure what’s happening with the floor but I’m not complaining. I love how the built ins around the window frame the seating area.
Ok, this one is a little out of control but I am probably the most in love with it. Those pillows couldn’t be more worn in.
Here’s another kitchen remodel. I can tell most of the furniture here is from Ikea but they put it together so well. I have too used Ikea bookcases and flipped them on its side to be a seating area. I have never attempted putting more then 2 people on mine, so I’m not sure how much I want to endorse this for everyday sitting. I also love the way the light fixture reflects off little daisies, although I am sure in the middle of the night while getting a glass of water I might think there were spiders all over my walls. Wow, I’m getting real with you guys today.
Just another kitchen nook. Similar to the one above. Shabby chic, cottage looking, light, airy, fresh. Love it.
Hello sunshine! This is probably the perfect kitchen nook for those that need a little more caffeine in the morning. That yellow will scream, “GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE!” before you even get a chance to pour your first cup of joe. I love it. It is also a bit retro with the matching cushions on the chairs and bench.
And finally, the kitchen nook that inspired this whole post from Poppytalk. Loving the materials, the colors, the raw accents. Check out that iron table base.
Enjoy this Wednesday!
