Le Chateau des fleurs, breakfast nook

Oh i loved the Alice in Wonderland  party yesterday...I can't stop looking at the pictures...So glad i have a camera to capture those memories...Now....The tour continues...
Welcome to the Breakfast nook. The walls are brown like in the kitchen. Ceilings Aqua blue. The floor is the same as kitchen... Cobblestone in an Antique pattern.

I really love this white buffet...I love painted furniture.

When i lived in Southern France, we lived in a small white house with a Terracotta roof tile, like in this picture. We were on a hill facing another hill. My bedroom view was on the other hill, covered with Sunflower fields.....Oh so beautiful...France is covered with fields. We have our own agriculture and produces for the country, it includes farming too.

Yep, Zacky, you match my furniture...Looking good... LOL

I love the bench, although plan for a lot of room to move it to sit down.

I love toile. It is the theme for my kitchen and nook.

It is next to the kitchen... What you see, the green wall is the hall to the lockers if you go right. On the left  is the garage door.

This is my winter look on the buffet. Tomorrow is my spring makeover in the breakfast nook...:)

I use to have this exact table and chairs. I gave it to my daughter because it was just too large for our space...even with the leaf out. ;( I sure do miss it. Especially the bench!

Everything looks BEAUTIFUL!

What a pretty nook! I love your colours (my living room is exactly the same colours!) I love the French sign too, how appropriate!
My boyfriend is taking me to Paris soon and I'll be keeping my eye out for some shabby, French goodies!

I sure do love your home, very beautiful. I think my walls are a bit darker brown but it's hard to tell. Thanks for sharing! :D

I love the cabinet, because I too, love painted furniture. I like that the painting reminds you of home.

Your breakfast nook is nice, perfect for a family. And I love the toile fabric. Thanks for sharing, Frenchy.

Ma chèrie,
You home is lovely, and the Provençcal look is my absolute favorite. It is comfortable, elegant and rich all at the same time. HAVE A FUN DAY! Anita

Beautiful nook! This Ozark farm chick's home is French country, at least I try! Heeehehe! It's a little hard when you smack in the hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa!

I popped over from Maggie's to say howdy and so glad I did.

Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

Your home looks so warm and inviting. You've created a perfect get-together place. Everything flows with your French theme. Fantastic. Also, you sure keep a clean house. That says alot about a person, how they keep their house. Good Work!
