Seems like everyone I talk to these days is itching for spring to get here! Daylight hours are getting longer and I love waking up to the sun with a cup of coffee in my kitchen dining space. To create your own springtime fresh breakfast nook, here’s a few ideas to get you started!
Color! Find a fresh color and paint your table, chairs, or even your walls. It’s amazing how just a small touch of color can brighten up a space.
Add Natural Elements. Whether it’s a colorful bowl filled with fresh lemons or a pretty new plant, natural elements lend springtime appeal to any dining space.
Rev Up Romantic Appeal. Fans of the shabby chic look are good at adding a bit of romance to their homes. Here, a fringed tablecloth pairs with a fresh bouquet of roses. Painted chairs (see the first tip) can easily give your breakfast nook charming appeal.
Think Spring Colors. Nothing says spring like the color green! And what’s more, this organic color is a hot trend for 2019. You only need a touch of the color to create earthy appeal.
Update Your Pillows. I always like a pillow or two in my dining spaces. If you’re lucky to have a banquette, you can enjoy lots of pillows. Even though the walls are a deep brown, this charming dining corner is light and bright with colorful pillows.
Change Your Wall Art. A simple framed print might be all you need to add a fresh look to your dining area. The beautiful bird print is paired with a simple feather print hung by a clip. I have a few vintage bird prints you can download and frame.
Table for Two, Please! Don’t have a designated breakfast nook in your home? Make one! A small drop leaf table tucks nicely next to a wall free of cabinets and appliances. Look around – you might find you have the perfect spot for a table for two.
Add Color with Accent Pieces. Anyone can brighten their breakfast nook with just a few accent pieces. Window ledges can be lined with glass bottles in an array of colors, or small plants that like bright light look cute, too. Use a colorful pitcher as a centerpiece and set your table with colorful dishes.
I hope these breakfast nook ideas provide inspiration to brighten your morning dining space for the spring season. Let me know if you decide to incorporate any of these ideas. Spring arrives in less than a month!
