When I was a child, some of my favorite books were the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series. The books, written in the 1950s, introduced me to such home elements as chaise lounges and breakfast nooks, both of which I have wanted ever since. I have rarely seen a modern house that has a breakfast nook, but I think it is a room that should make a come-back. What sounds cozier than eating hot pancakes and cocoa in your breakfast nook on a cold snowy morning? Nothing. That’s what.
My breakfast nook will be snuggled in a corner just off the kitchen. Preferably, it will be round with windows on all sides because no self-respecting breakfast nook would be windowless. Despite the quaintness of a booth set up, mine will not be so. Booths have always made me feel boxed in and claustrophobic. Nonetheless, these are some classy booth examples:
