Monday Nook


This lovely little kitchen nook was sent in by 'Jenny'.

Jenny says, "I have a study nook between my kitchen and laundry and I must say I love it! The main advantage is observing little people's internet use while cooking dinner. I have filing drawers to organise paper flow and a butler's pantry to store any build up, with door closed, until I can get to it."

Jenny says my kitchen was inspiration for her kitchen. Jenny your kitchen nook is inspiration for my next kitchen! We could go on like this forever!

Happy Monday! ... my little tacker is off on school camp.... in the rain. Venue has been changed already. I was having a bit of a whinge on twitter about the $580 school camp levy, for 2 x one night camps. I had a giggle at some of the responses referring to lobster and 1000 thread count sheets. Poor mites are going to be cold and wet. The 'making of men', they say! It's only one night. I'll cope. He's beyond excited.

  4. I love this kitchen. and the nook. i need to do this somewhere in my place.
    Please could you tell me what the kitchen cupboards and doors are made of or called. as i like the finish aswell as the caesarstone benchtop name, i am meeting with the kitchen man tomorrow.
    Another Question: if i go with the all white kitchen: will it still look good if i am having a high gloss porcelain white 1 meter x 1meter floor tile. i am also thinking of having a soft latte colour glass splash back.
    HELP

  5. Penny, looks like the doors are 2 pak, shaker profile. The Caesarstone looks like Osprey, 40mm, but I would have to confirm with Jenny. You know me, I love 'all white'. I think it will look fabulous! A-M xx

  6. Thanks for posting my study nook A-M, and thanks for all the lovely comments. The area was supposed to be a side door for the laundry, and we changed our minds and put the nook there! The cupboard doors are Polyurethane, colour dulux vivid white in a satin finish. the caesar stone is Ice Snow! Good luck with your kitchen Penny!

  14. This is so wonderful to see. Planning a HUGE Reno this year and this is the sort of kitchen I'm aiming for. I'm fortunate to have the space for a butler's pantry but do I put a sink in it or just have shelves and cupboards? The "office" corner is so genius and excellent for supervising children, as well as managing the bills, etc. Need to work one into my space.

    Does 2-Pak chip or dent, AM? Apologies if this is a stupid question - my current kitchen is full Danish oak, so I have no experience in 2-Pak, but I am "liking what I see!"

    All the best with the camp, AM. I am with you re: the cost of camps, but it's all about the rising costs of liability, etc and I get that too. *sigh* Just watching those Jimmy Choo peep-toed heels pass us by.......wheeeeee!

  15. How lovely.... all that lovely natural light streaming in the window to give your eyes a rest from the computer screen.... but without affecting the mood lighting in the kitchen!
