Get the Look: Nest-Inspired Breakfast Nook

Nothing says morning like the sound of chirping birds, and the bird motifs that are so ubiquitous now feel like they belong in the breakfast nook. So for this Get the Look, I'm designing a comfy dining area using subtle, natural elements. I was inspired by this Room Service Home Faux Bois Tableware ($34 to $58 per piece). I love the rustic yet delicate charm of the twig accents and nest motif. Here's how to get the look in your nest.

The Palette: Robin's egg blue should be in abundance, offset by dark woodsy brown and pale green.

The furniture: The Faux Bois tableware will look best against a natural wood or white table. I chose a sunny white one with rustic-looking chairs. For a bit of color, find a baby blue sideboard or buffet.

The accents: Bird-adorned pillows are a comfy addition to the wooden chairs, while curtains and table linens should complement the nest theme without being too cutesy.

The lighting: In addition to overhead lighting, I've found some elegant nest-inspired lamps that would look great on the buffet.

Love the nature theme, love birds...I think I'd go a little less 'cute' and blue and a little more pale green/botanical print serious. But then that wouldn't be very sweet and breakfast nook-ish, now would it? Anyways, I like it.
