Recently we painted our breakfast nook. I wanted it to look airy and bright so we chose white for the walls above the chair rail and a terracotta of sorts for below. I wanted the paint below to match my furniture. I think it comes close.
The decorating started with this piece that I made for my Modern Quilt Guild project when I was the monthly moderator.
This is the view from the living room into the breakfast nook.
I decided that four of those same blocks would make a beautiful valance.
You can see the lovely sunshine coming in the window with a view to our back garden.
With the scraps left over I made a couple of place mats for our table.
Now I love to be in my nook. It is relaxing and refreshing. Just makes me feel good all over.
Often I choose to sign wall pieces instead of adding a label.
N.A.Fogg Creation just about says it all.
Just so you will "see" what we see from our little breakfast nook window, here is a picture with the Red Japanese Maple, the Green Japanese Maple, the Yellow-Twig Dogwood, and the Pink Loropetalum. The landscape has the same palette as my project -- or, perhaps, it is better to say that my project has the same palette as the landscape.
