Let’s Put Together a Nook

Which furniture, art, and lighting would you choose to put together a little nook? I’ll tell you what I’d choose below!

  1. Claude Walnut Bar
  2. Cleo Table Lamp *
  3. Keriloo *
  4. Baby Donkey
  5. Green Wave Print
  6. Number 36 Painting
  7. Verona Wheeled Console Table
  8. Delta Bone Table Lamp
  9. 1940s Architect’s Boom Lamp Sconce
  10. Louis XVI Dresser *
  11. Rift #26 (Heimaey Houses)

* I would be thrilled to put any of these in my home, but I think I’d go with 2, 3, and 10. I really, really want that painting.

Which ones would you choose?

  4. MyPeaceOfFood September 20, 2011 at 10:49 am #

    Those choices for a little nook are perfect!! Love the Claude Walnut bar, the Delta Bone table lamp and the donkey picture. Thanks for sharing where we could find these items. Could make a very fun space with this stuff!

  7. Catherine September 20, 2011 at 11:13 am #

    I like 3, 7, & 8. THe painting is a MUST. :)

  8. Megan September 20, 2011 at 11:15 am #

    9, 10, and 11

  9. Amanda September 20, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    I’d choose 1, 2, 3 and a smaller version of 4 for the table top in giraffe form (I’ve be ooh and ahhing over Sharon’s work for a while now!)

    I love the colour and playfullness of 3 and the lines of the console table.

  10. Renee Smith September 20, 2011 at 11:23 am #

    7, 3, 6, and 9. I’m going to have to double up on the art, and prop the numbers on the table… 36 doesn’t have much significance, though, so maybe a smaller version of the donkey for that purpose.

  11. Down and Out Chic September 20, 2011 at 11:35 am #

    i adore all the pieces so this is difficult but i think i’d go with 1, 8, and 4.

  12. Carla September 20, 2011 at 11:39 am #

    1,3,8 for sure, these are always so fun!

    • Jill Browning September 20, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

      I’m with Carla. The Claude Walnut Bar is awesome!

    i love that michelle armas painting!

  14. Lindsey September 20, 2011 at 11:55 am #

    6,8, & 10! Love your blog Nicole!

  15. Jessica September 20, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    I’m with you on 2, 3, 10. Usually I have a really hard time with these posts, because I just can’t picture the different items together very easily. But this time those three things just jumped out at me and now I’ve got some major “wanting” going on.

  16. Priscilla September 20, 2011 at 12:14 pm #

    Such a cute idea for a blog post. I love it! I’m a huge industrialist style fan and I love Sharon Montrose so I’d have to go with 4, 7 and 9.

  17. reynok11 September 20, 2011 at 12:34 pm #

    5, 8, 10 – looks so peaceful! I also really do love #3 as well!

  18. Bohemian Zsi Zsi September 20, 2011 at 12:47 pm #

    Great election! i´m with you, 2, 3, 10. The painting would look so well in my bedroom… :)

  19. Nelle September 20, 2011 at 1:17 pm #

    I have the Cleo lamp and I love it so much I even had it rewired to work in England! Its so beautiful and gives of the perfect light… in case you needed more encouragement ;)

  20. Kristin September 20, 2011 at 1:39 pm #

    I would choose what you did. :) but I also love the 36 and donkey print and like the idea of a collage of those three pictures in different sizes.

  21. diane September 20, 2011 at 1:44 pm #

    1, 3, and 8 would be my choices. Love them

  22. iris September 20, 2011 at 2:17 pm #

    Oh, gawd. I love Michelle Armas’ work so much, I have TWO copies of her “Secret Garden” print in my apartment.

  23. lea September 20, 2011 at 2:31 pm #

    7, 9 plus a comfy chair with a throw!

  24. Sarah W September 20, 2011 at 2:50 pm #

    I’d do 123!

  25. Anita K September 20, 2011 at 3:03 pm #

    This room is done by a friend of mine, I thought of you with all the beautiful colors and awesome style!

  26. Erika September 20, 2011 at 3:11 pm #

    Oh man, I need 3 nooks! Okay, I would choose 1, 3 and 9 plus a comfy chair. ;o)

  27. Brittany September 20, 2011 at 4:10 pm #

    #2, #3, and #10!!!! Love all the pieces though :)

  28. Dacia September 20, 2011 at 5:25 pm #

    I would go with 1, 3, and 8. I, too, LOVE that painting.

  29. Emma September 20, 2011 at 5:49 pm #

    3,7,&9 … but I luuuuurve 1, its a bit tall for my nook, so it will just have to go somewhere else!

  30. Cindy September 20, 2011 at 5:53 pm #

    All good options, but I think I would go with 3,7,&9. But I would turn my nose up at any of them!

  31. CJ September 20, 2011 at 6:07 pm #

    I love nearly everything here. But mainly I want to say thanks for introducing me to Sharon Montrose. I have just looked at her website and found about a dozen must haves for my little boys’ rooms! Now to decide how to justify shipping them all to Australia. Thx Nicole!

  32. Jan September 20, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    I’d choose 3, 8, & 10.

  33. Amanda September 20, 2011 at 9:21 pm #

    I’d choose 10, 3, & 9!

  34. Viv September 20, 2011 at 10:31 pm #

    Michelle’s work is BEAUTIFUL! I’ve yet to have mine stretched and hung. I should get onto that and this post has reminded me, thank you.

    Great choices – I’d go with 1, 2 & 3 myself. I’m crazy for that Jonathan Adler piece.

  35. Desiree September 20, 2011 at 11:12 pm #

    I’d go 2, 3, 6, 7 – which, I know is two pieces of art but I would love to lean both pieces on that fantastic table to create a bit of a layered look. And that lamp adds just enough gild to the entire look.

  36. ANDAC September 21, 2011 at 12:36 am #

    2-3-10 absolutely :)

  37. VikaMoka September 21, 2011 at 1:21 am #

    2, 7 & 4 … The donkey is absolutely lovely !

  38. Nat @ Dear Little House September 21, 2011 at 1:26 am #

    1,4,9! :)

  39. Kathy September 21, 2011 at 1:42 am #

    All I know is that #1 needs to be in my life, somehow, some way…So 1 and 3 for sure.

  40. Kristín September 21, 2011 at 9:23 am #

    love this post, especially #11, I was there last weekend, (http://kristinjona.blogspot.com/2011/09/we-visited-westman-islands-yesterday-it.html)- visiting my husbands relatives who live really close to where the picture was taken! Such a beautiful place.. If you ever come to Iceland (a big IF for most people, hehe) you must visit the Westman Islands! :)

    Greetings from Iceland!
    Kristín :)

  41. Rebecca September 21, 2011 at 9:48 am #

    1, 3, 8

  42. Jennae @ Green Your Decor September 21, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    Definitely 1, 3 & 8. LOVE the Claude Walnut Bar, and I am completely with you on the painting. It makes me want to pull out all my paint and try my hand at DIYing it.

  43. kate September 21, 2011 at 2:40 pm #

    1, 2, 3.
    Michelle Armas is an amazing painter. Her paintings look even better in person…I’m lucky enough to have one in my living room and I just love it.

  44. Caitlin September 21, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

    I’d choose 3, 7 and 8!

  45. Stefan September 22, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    1, 3, 8(with a different lampshade) or 11,5,6,7,9. I really want 2 in my house.

  46. Nichole October 10, 2011 at 5:49 pm #

    I’d choose 2, 5, and 7. Those three lend themselves most to my current color scheme (red, aqua, green), so I’d start with those and add a splash of aqua and red on the table with smaller accents or books. That is an awesome table.
