Don’t you love a sunny breakfast nook?  For me, it conjures up visions of cozy weekend mornings spent drinking coffee, eating pastries, and reading the newspaper.  (Never mind the fact that we rarely have pastries in the house and no longer get the newspaper!) After we finished our kitchen refresh a few months ago, my focus immediately jumped to the next project: updating our breakfast nook.  Our kitchen eating area is in dire need of a facelift.  We’ve had the same table and chairs for years, and I’m ready to replace them with something fresh and new.  That means I’ve been spending a lot of time over on Pinterest and Instagram gathering breakfast nook ideas.  

Last fall, right at the beginning of our kitchen project, we did replace the light fixture over the table with this light fixture, which I love. Now I just need to find the perfect table and chairs to go with it! 

Currently, I’m leaning toward a white tulip table and either bistro or Windsor-style chairs.  But I’ve seen so many creative and beautiful breakfast nook ideas that I’m open to other possibilities.  Just take a look all the kitchen dining spaces below, and you’ll see what I mean!

Note: I found most of these photos over on Pinterest and tried to credit the original sources where possible, but some of the pins were vague as to the original designer.  I’d love to give full credit to the owner/designer of each of these beautiful kitchens, so if you know the original source for any I couldn’t identify, please let me know and I’ll amend my post!
