If you know me at all, you know I am completely and hopelessly addicted to coffee. It’s the last thing I think of before I fall asleep at night and it is the first thing I think about in the morning. You could safely say that I am addicted and am borderline needing an intervention. Lol!
If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my coffee corner pictures before. Most questions and comments I receive are somehow related to this pretty little corner. You all like coffee as much as I do apparently! #butfirstcoffee
So many of you want to create your own coffee corner but aren’t quite sure where to start. Well, the most important part is choosing your coffee maker – obviously. I have a white Keurig which I received for Christmas last year and I am obsessed. It gives me the option to brew my coffee STRONG which is totally necessary in my opinion. It also has the option of brewing a small pot or single cups. Most days I drink three cups of coffee in the morning…I should probably be brewing a pot instead of a cup. Ooops.
Second, pick your favorite type of coffee; mine is McDonalds McCafe coffee – it is smooth and not bitter at all. They have the option of K-cups or loose grounds. I use both.
Now for the pretty details. Pull out some of your favorite mugs from the cupboard. If you are like me, you are slightly OCD…meaning the only mugs I display are white, gold or pink. So picking a color scheme is helpful to keep the corner looking tidy and somewhat uncluttered. The best way to display them is on a large cake stand. Ikea, Homesense and for your American girls, Target, have great cake stand options. Who actually uses those things for cake, right??
Next? Add a vase of fresh flowers. This is the first spot in your house that you will see in the morning. It may as well be really pretty, right? Plus the scent of fresh coffee and fresh flowers? The perfect combination! I try to always have flowers in the house – even a small bud vase will do the trick in this corner.
Next up, add some cute little details. I love displaying different prints or signs that reference coffee. I have a mirror tucked in this corner as well to make the space look a little bit larger.
Other than that, it is totally up to you. If you put cream or sugar in your coffee, this would be a good corner to display your sugar and creamer set. If you don’t have one, I think this is a good enough reason to go buy a cute set.
Anyway. That sums up the process of creating a picture worthy coffee corner. When we build our next home, I have very specific designs and ideas for this important corner of the kitchen. I can’t wait for that to become reality.
Now go set up your own corner and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you do.
