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?

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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! :)

    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.

    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.

    […] wanted a Michelle Armas painting forever, and when the one I really wanted sold out before I could commit to buying it, I was disappointed. When I spotted that smaller pink […]
