Take a peek at our styled breakfast nook! This is one space in the house that I sort of neglected since we moved in. I literally just assembled the 4-seat dining table from the small apartment and added an area rug and left the space bare for months. The size of the space is definitely challenging, and with the old chandelier hanging that came with the house (which by the way I don’t like), I can’t figure out what kind of wall arts I should use while keeping my minimalist style.
Since it’s just my husband and me with our almost 6-year old Shih Tzu, we tend to use our breakfast nook more often than our dining area on a daily basis. It’s the small space in the kitchen area, so it’s accessible and especially for us who don’t have the passion for cooking the setup suits our needs – FOR NOW! But when the boys join us for sure, it will be a total change of how we approach meals and home setup in general.
After the Haven conference (a.k.a. DIY blogging conference) last week, I decided to tackle our breakfast nook. Wait, it wasn’t that easy though because I was so stuck with the wall art ideas. I have this tendency of pushing myself to paint something pretty when the (sad) reality is, it’s not needed after all for the project. So, after rocking my head, I decided to go to a local store to look for wall art ideas. I know that fabric can be a great option, but I don’t know what color and design I wanted that would fit in the space until I stumbled upon these gold print fabrics.

Wall Art Ideas for Our Breakfast Nook
* 4-Photo Frame Wall Gallery – I used this photo frame and cut the gold print fabrics as per the needed size. Then, I ironed the materials to make sure that it’s not wrinkly when positioned into the frames. There are four different print fabrics designs among the ones I bought, so I have to play with the gallery placement. Here’s what I came up with!
* “Be Obsessively Grateful” Wall Art – This one is effortless. I simply write the quote using a craft paintbrush and black craft paint on a heavyweight board. I’d like to believe that it came out just fine.
Let’s talk about the table setup. For a centerpiece, I painted the terracotta I had leftovered from a previous DIY craft project with white craft paint and added my favorite succulent. It’s a 10-minute craft idea that you can replicate for sure.
The dining table is Mainstays 5-piece counter-height, cherry finished, and all-wood construction. This set is perfect for a contemporary style look.
The area rug I used in this space is Electra beige/ blue with a geometric diamond pattern set against a streaked gray background that’s brimming for a contemporary style look.
Overall, I’m pleased with how our styled breakfast nook turned out. It’s a simple project that adds so much personality to our home. For sure we’ll love this space even more. As I always say, one room at a time. On to the next project!
