breakfast nook

Finally, an area of the house that looks pulled together! Pulling together a house is big work, and before I started nailing things on the wall, I needed the go-ahead from my mom.  Yes, you heard it.  I will always need my mom.  As for the pieces, I found the light fixture at Uncommon Objects in Austin.  Oh, I could spend hours there- love it! I collected the posters in Paris a couple of years ago…I thought I was tired of them, but they pull the little space together.  The place-mats and napkins are an estate sale find.  In case you were wondering, David is highly supportive of all the shades of coral on the first floor of our house- obviously, he is a keeper. It is a little bit cottage-like for me, but I am just going to keep editing until I am satisfied.  Right now I am just so happy for my mom and David’s help, and I love that it is cozy.  The perfect place for sipping coffee and chatting with family and friends.
