My LA Home Tour: Dining Nook

Venice, CA

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend!  I am so excited to share my dining nook with you.  This little alcove was empty when I moved in, and I immediately envisioned a cozy dining bench built into the corner.  I found a picture of one I loved on Pinterest, showed it to my contractor and he built it in 2 days.  It’s one of my most used areas in the house.  I love eating breakfast here, having meetings around the table, and bringing my laptop to work.  I rotate the flowers and coffee table books I keep on it and it always brightens my day when I walk by and see a pop of color in that corner.

For artwork, I made custom art to hang in this nook.  I love the look of custom art – it’s so unique – and SO easy to make!  The larger piece is a textile I picked up on a trip to San Miguel de Allende.  A woman handmade the piece and I knew I had to bring it home with me the second I saw it!  The wonderful team at Simply Framed laid it in this stunning lucite frame.  The other two pictures are actually just photos I tore out of a magazine and a coffee table book and put in Restoration Hardware frames!
