Breakfast Nook with Domino & Laura Ashley
I have been shamelessly dropping hints about a “Secret Project”, well… this is it! A few months back I was contacted by Domino Magazine to help with a project. Could you just die?! Domino emailed me. I may have shed a tear if I am being honest. They said they loved the Hunted Interior & wanted to know if I would like to pair up to create a space to ReImagine Laura Ashley… Loving a challenge I immediately said “YES!” without even thinking of a space to ReImagine.
You all know our home is quite small. And while there are always projects going on, we were starting to love the way each of the spaces was going. I wasn’t looking to simply redo a space, just to redo a space. We wanted to create a space we would really love & really use. While we loved our Hutch/Desk at the end of our Kitchen, after creating the Office/Guest Room there wasn’t really a need for a second desk space. And since we are now minus a Dining Room, we really needed a space to sit & dine as a family. So we decided to create a Breakfast Nook & deck it out in Laura Ashley, only in a more current way.
The ironic part of this project is I grew up in the late 80’s, early 90’s in a Laura Ashley bedroom. As I am sure a lot of you did as well. You remember the look… Matching Floral Print Comforter, Pillows, Valances, Sheets… well everything. My goal with this space was to still incorporate all of the lovely florals Laura Ashley offers, but to mix them up creating a more eclectic & modern vibe.
Head on over to Domino.com to check out how our space went from a Mood Board to realization using some amazing Laura Ashley products.
btw… there will be a few tutorials coming your way from this project so stay tuned!
EEK! Kristin!!! This is so exciting and it looks so fantastic!!!!!! Congrat and fab work xoxo
Thanks love!! (Welcome to the East Coast!!)
Gorgeous as always Kristin!
Congrats on the great feature, Kristin! Those wallpaper panels make the space.
oh girl! This is so fabulous- but as we all know, everything you touch turns out amazing!! I love watching you master your craft!! Happy to see the David Hicks pillow still making appearances . LOL!!
It looks wonderful Kristin! And congratulations! I'm glad Dominio sees in you what we all see as well. 🙂
It's gorgeous, Kristin! Love how you used those wallpaper panels!!! And I *totally* was Laura Ashley-ed out back in the day. I just may pull out a photo or two for my blog post, hahaha!!
Thanks Emily!!! xo
Thank you Amanda!! That really means a lot. & yes…It is still getting lots of love around here!!
Thank you Elizabeth!!
Thank you so much Traci! I cannot wait to see you space!! And please share pics lol. I wish I had some of my own!!
love the space and i've been looking for a built in bench design for our cottage dining room and think i'll copy yours! Wonder if you can say where you got the curtain hardware? I'm tired of stuff I have now which looks like what it is: generic dull and heavy
Thanks Kelly! I'll be sharing tutorials for both the bench & the drapery rod very soon!
It looks really, really fabulous, Kristin! I'm going to be building a built-in bench for our kitchen soon – just a straight one, not corner – and have been brainstorming the structure of it since I need it to be open underneath for baseboards. I've been picturing something similar to this – love seeing a real-life mockup here 🙂
Beautiful as always, friend! Can't wait to hear more about the process.
So stunning! Bravo friend! xo MKR @waitingonmartha
Oh my gosh…fabulous as always Kristin! I absolutely grew up in that Laura Ashley era. I might have had quite a few frilly dresses designed in her fabrics as well. (but we will just keep that a secret) You totally did her fabric justice and made it a hip place to sip some tea. Love It!
You are my hero!!! xo
It is amazing!! You are beyond talented. My bedroom at my parent's house is still decked out in coordinating Laura Ashley head to toe. You have made it so modern and clean!
Beautiful as always!
I really love it Kristin, your eye is impeccable
Love how it turned out- and I spy some fabulous lucite/brass curtain rods! Fabulous as always!
This is stunning! Congratulations on the Domino feature Kirsten! You have such a talent for mixing fabrics together.
This is great!! I might really have to attempt it and congrats on Domino!
SO so pretty! That Summer Palace Wallpaper is gorgeous!
so pretty! i'm totally not surprised domino called YOU…it's a perfect match. and, i love, love the shape and style of the bench…plus everything on top! gorgeous.
First, CONGRATS! That's so exciting! What a pretty and functional space for your family, love your new take on Laura Ashley!
congratulations and the space looks gorgeous!
SO good Kristin!! Amazing as usual 🙂
What wonderful mix of patterns! I love everything you do. I'm curious – is that the Ikea docksta? I have found mine a disappointment. The base is easily scuffed and impossible to keep clean. What's your experience with it?
I watched that gif about a 50 times already this morning. This is incredible, Kristin! Inspiring as always. xx A
Great project! It turned out really beautiful! I love the wallpaper panels!
