Fixer Upper's Dreamiest Breakfast Nooks

Casual dining never looked so elegant and inviting.

Let’s be honest — Joanna Gaines’ design concepts, no matter what the space is, make us drool with design envy. I wish I had the eye she has for interior design. And combined with Chip’s knack for real estate and construction, they're an unstoppable team.

From incredible kitchen makeovers to beautiful and timeless living areas, Chip and Joanna know exactly how to create that homey feel in each of their renovations. Breakfast nooks are no exception.

White Country Breakfast Nook

Country Breakfast Nook With Bench Seating, Natural Lighting and Simple Country Table Setting

This breakfast nook features bench seating that also has storage. A country chandelier illuminates the table while shiplap walls brighten the space, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. Dark wood chairs are seated at the open sides of the table. A metal basket with fresh yellow tulips creates a simple and stylish centerpiece for the space.

Part of what I envision for my future home includes a cozy breakfast nook to enjoy coffee and early morning conversations with my family. Until then, I'm content to browse through my favorite breakfast nooks from Fixer Upper for inspiration.

So, sip on some coffee, put your feet up and join me as I take you through these stunning breakfast nooks designed by the one and only Joanna Gaines:

This breakfast nook from the renovated Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast is great inspiration for the holidays. Add some greenery and a dash of red for a timeless look that will last the whole season. The signature shiplap walls, hardwood flooring and classic wood dining set really bring in that gorgeous farmhouse vibe.

A cozy nook for two might be just what you envisioned. Coffee mugs are easily accessible, and the vertical bakery sign simply completes the coffee shop-esque design. All that's missing is a plate of pastries and pot of coffee.
