"Nook" is one of my favorite words; it's just so cozy and comforting somehow.  From that nook I slide into on the couch when I'm falling asleep as we watch TV, to that perfect little nook on his shoulder when he puts his arm around me, to that private, secret reading nook that we all dream about in our "someday I will have a perfect home" dreams...nooks are happy and wonderful places indeed.

Which brings me to the breakfast nook.  Ah yes, one of the most famous of all nooks.  A series of breakfast nooks was posted on Apartment Therapy last week, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites.  Click here to see the original article.

And now, if you'll excuse me, it's cold and rainy here in Berkeley, and there's a little couch nook all decked out with a down comforter, whispering my name.


  1. As I looked through these, I thought about each one, "OMG! Fave!"... until I looked at the next one. They're all so different but so awesome in their own ways.

    Nooks do, indeed, rock!

  2. I always did love the breakfast nook idea. Of course my little reading nook on the green couch is my favorite.
