Whereas I desperately need to take my time adorning this home (and I’m, in some methods) there are a couple of furnishings items which can be going to be customized (aka lengthy lead instances) that I actually need to get occurring (our inexperienced lounge couch being one other). At the moment is concerning the eating nook up within the nook. She is a decent little nook that we already use lots, however the plan was all the time to have a built-in banquette that may be inviting however easy, nearly like that restaurant sales space at a bar within the nook. I might say that proper now we eat dinner right here 3-4 instances every week (sharing the schedule with the kitchen island on late nights after sports activities after we are extra rushed, particular sunroom meals on Sundays and a few Mondays, and film meals most Friday/Saturday nights if we don’t eat out or go to a pal’s home). It’s additionally an excellent place to do future homework and the children draw right here lots.
Right here’s the nook that we’re speaking about. And in case you might be questioning if I’ve provide you with an answer for the partitions/trim feeling unfinished, I’ve not and I’m nonetheless sad with it however am not going to make a transfer till I really feel it’s the fitting one – learn this put up to get caught up on that. However as you possibly can see, the peak of the paneling will dictate the peak of the again of the sales space – which is 32″ (the dimensions of the room is massive – excessive ceilings, massive home windows which make the paneling look small however its 12″ paneling).
For enjoyable right here’s a have a look at what this area appeared like after we bought it…
It’s nonetheless to me wild how a lot has modified and the way significantly better it feels for our household.
With the format of the dwelling/kitchen, it was arduous to squeeze in a eating desk principally as a result of the hearth dictated the middle of the lounge, aka the dialog space. So at instances through the design course of, we had somewhat eating desk floating between the kitchen and dwelling however it didn’t really feel proper. We then realized that if we constructed on this nook, we’d have the area to seat 4 – 6 (little ones) right here. So that’s the reason the door is slammed in opposition to the facet of the kitchen.
The pocket door goes to the household room (and sure it’s tight) however if you find yourself sitting right here it feels good!
Once we first moved in we used our IKEA tulip desk right here with 4 chairs and it was tremendous and helped us actually get a way of the area. It additionally confirmed that we appreciated sitting right here, that it’s a very good location from the kitchen and does really feel cozy.
The IKEA desk right here is 40.5″ in diameter, so we’re pondering a 30″x60″ oval desk – making the pass-through area simpler to navigate and simpler to get out and in of.
Right here’s extra context – with the kitchen a complete mess, however you get the thought (we shot this for the lounge replace shoot, however purposefully hid the kitchen whereas wanting to indicate you the connection with the lounge.
That hanging sconce is classic from The Rejuvenation Classic Assortment and it’s unbelievable (see this put up for more information). It was hung too excessive and to the left so it’s now been moved down.
You possibly can see the connection between the lounge and the eating nook there – it’s positively shut sufficient.
So the place are we now?
This was a couple of months in the past, however we have now made a teeny tiny little bit of progress. I discovered an excellent cute farm desk at a thrift retailer that was a significantly better scale for the interim (and we use the tulip desk for stitching upstairs now).
Right here it’s. It gave us a greater thought of what measurement would work. It’s 30″x48″ and we hope so as to add one other foot onto the desk, as an oval. I actually need to get on designing it. I do know that we’ll use Sunbrella on the cushion however uncertain if we would like a again cushion or simply fairly wooden with pillows or hanging slim cushions – once more we don’t have a ton of area.
Extra to come back clearly…however needed to provide you a fast farmhouse replace whereas I had you. xx
