I found this photo there and I'm not sure why I like it so much, but I do! I really do!
Uh, now I'm pretty sure I need a) banquette seating and b) to paint my pedestal table white. I do like the idea of a nook, but the thing that I think mainly appeals to me about this photo is how vibrant the pops of color are in the muted room. And the kid art. Lovely.
