"Edible" Breakfast Nook

Last time we looked at my breakfast nook, Jesse and I were at odds about paint colors.  And then in the last few minutes of the Super Bowl, somehow I got Jesse agree to let me paint any and every room in the house blue IF the Giants won.  They did.  Go Blue, indeed.

Though the color we went ended up being a bit greener than I expected, the walls in the breakfast nook are now Behr's Atmosphere.  I love it.  It's hard to capture in photographs because the breakfast nook gets so much sunlight, but check it out:

And, as you can see, I stuck up some old "Edible" magazines that I had collected during our time in NYC...

I have a mix of Edible Brooklyns (from my favorite kitchen store) and Edible Manhattans (taken from the Gramercy Tavern, across the street from my old office) propped up on the window sill.  I'm trying to decide what to do about framing, but for now I love the colors and the detailed photographs...

I even like that sparkly pink pig lamp, even if the "good meat" issue wasn't my favorite one.

For now, I'm loving them just casually propped up.  They're food related, of course, for the room we eat most of our meals in but interesting and a little different.  What do you think?  Let me know and stay hungry (& homey!).


  1. Go Blue, indeed. hehee!! Yay for the win because this is beautiful. I love green and that is a beautiful shade!

  2. I love that color it is really pretty! I'm glad you won because this is just perfection!

  3. I love that color! My Jesse (so funny our husbands have the same name!) and I were discussing a deep, rich blue green color for our dining are tonight at dinner!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! :)

  4. I love this color.....YAY!! Don't you just love when you can pursuade the hubs to do anything you want during a game.......I have a whole list when the Super Bowl rolls around!! :-)

  5. Thanks, everyone! I meant to say in the post (and forgot) that I LOOOVE how the paint looks with the wood color. I wanted to repaint all of our wood trim white and Jesse put his foot down and I am glad he did. This color makes the wood look so much richer.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
