Breakfast Nooks are cozy, inviting and functional. Whether your enjoying the weekend paper with a hot cup of joe, or scrambling to get the kids fed and off to school the breakfast nook is a wonderful addition to any kitchen. The name is somewhat misleading, because this comfy kitchen space doesn’t have to be breakfast related…often times it’s the homework hub for kids, a wine date with a girlfriend or a home office to pay bills or catch up on email. Usually it’s design composition of banquette, chairs, pillows and a lighting fixture that draws people in, but we couldn’t help but swoon at these 5 delicious breakfast nooks this week.

This modern and colorful nook makes us want to pour a glass of sauvignon blanc and open up the latest issue of Architectural Digest. The lighting fixture, clean table lines and beautiful kitchen art all compliment the nook perfectly.

This cozy blue and green compliment to the white kitchen is warm and comforting. The design of the nook built into the island is a fabulous use of space.

This vibrant nook was designed with tremendous thought because if all of the colorful elements were taken away, you’d have a clean, white space. Changing up the accessories and pillow can change the entire look and feel of the nook once this one needs a change!

The gold chairs, sexy lighting fixture and stunning window treatments all work well in the nook. The rug compliments the entire space nicely and brings it all together.
