Welcome to my breakfast nook. It is by far my favorite room in the house. Actually I lie. Any room I am in is my favorite room except for the dining room it needs help (not much) but that's a whole other issue.
So the breakfast nook is 8 feet by 8 feet. Cozy.
And everything is in white and a soft mossy green.
Including the green and white ticking striped wall paper.
I need to talk about this poster for a second. It's cool at first glance until you look at it closely. The mermaids... A.) have no nipples and B.) have no pupils. Freeeeeaky man.
Seriously. They. Are. Scary.
Don't stare at that poster at night when everyone is in bed, the house is eerily silent and your husband is at work. Don't let your overactive imagination get the best of you. Not that I have or anything.
All the way down to the green sea glass curtain finials and the soft green canvas curtains. It's like Martha Stewart personally came down and decorated just for me.
Speaking of which... let's talk about lighting. You know how sometimes you go into people's houses and they are decorated nice enough but then you glance up and there is some horrible out of date lighting? It's like they never craned their neck upwards the whole time they have lived in their home? Not this house. In every case but two, the lighting is matching with the decor. (I just wanted to use the word decor in a sentence.)
Full disclosure: The wallpaper, curtains, finials, and paint were here before we moved in. The people before us had good taste, or at least taste that was pretty close to our own style. All I had to do was bring in my dishes, tea pots, crazy mermaid poster and make one trip to Ikea for a table and chairs, other than that this room was already complete.
I eat lunch, read, write, plan menus, talk on the phone, and take photos in here.
The kids eat, do their homework, talk, joke, argue, play games, and do crafts in here. I would even venture to say this is their favorite room also. It's a good room with a good vibe.
