We're waiting on the hood which is due to arrive and be installed any day, as well as the pendant light fixtures for over the island. Once those happen, the kitchen will be completely finished! I'm excited to show them both to you as well as the other little things that are coming together gradually. In the meantime, I'm thinking about furnishings. The house is a blank canvas right now, so it's been fun to think about all of the possibilities!

I would like to tackle the nook off of the kitchen first, as I expect this will be my preferred spot for reading, watching movies, hanging out with friends, etc. It's small and cozy, so it won't need much!

A sectional sofa will fit along the wall and under the window.

Here are two sofa options I'm considering.  Either one will need to be customized to fit the space. We sell this fabulous made-in-USA line in the shop and online here. Extremely well made and at a great price point! Please email me directly with inquires.

I like the look of this sofa – modern, yet it looks really comfy and deep. 


Sectional1
This one is more traditional. I would change the cushions so the sofa part has only one upper and one lower. I like the higher arms and side cushions too.

Thoughts?

Here are the fabrics – indigo linen for the sofa and the floral and striped for throw pillows.

I'm intrigued by small spaces and how the scale of a room impacts the way we feel while in it.

Here a few small spaces that inspire me.
