It actually took awhile to figure out what to do with the nook...
It started with the vision of a built-in banquette...
...with red and white ticking stripe like this one that's been in my inspiration file for years.
But the space is a touch too small. So we thought we'd tuck in a vintage table and add a few Louis chairs...
Country Living...but that didn't feel "just right."
As it turns out, the Sofia settee from Ballard Design did the trick!
It fits perfectly into the nook, right under a window that gazes out on our magnolia tree-- I can't wait to sit here in the spring and watch the pink blossoms pop!
We're still on the hunt for the perfect 39 to 41-inch round vintage table and the Louis chairs, but add a couple pillows from Pam at Red Ticking and, voila, a lovely nest for drinking morning coffee and reading a book. Perfect happiness! When the pieces all come together, I'll share a bigger photo.
How about you? Do you have any nest-feathering projects this fall?
