Slender french presses, shiny espresso machines, printed mugs and tiny sugar cups: each of these coffee-making accoutrements carry a certain elegance on their own. But when considered together, these pieces bring on a whole new dimension, creating a virtual black hole for any java lover that's almost as all-consuming as their love of caffeine. Yes, when the power of coffee and the power of pretty unite, there's no stopping morning cup appreciators from jumping with joy (and, for once, it's not to do with their extra burst of energy). Take a look at how your first sip of the day could be oh-so-much-better, and be prepared to start brewing even more than you already do.
A coffee cart with all the necessaries plus a touch of decor is the way to go. We love the wooden touches and lovely portrait above the espresso machine.
Amplify that wake-me-up feeling by placing your pretty coffee station near the window. Early morning light streaming in while you make a cup is a recipe for the perfect way to start the day.
If you take yours black, this coffee station against a pitch-dark wall is just for you. The contrast of the white station against the background is ideal for a decor pick-me-up prior to the potable one.
Tucked away with pretty tea canisters and a few printed cups, morning coffee starts to look a lot more special. And that's saying a lot for someone who considers morning coffee hour the next best thing to happy hour.
Adding a few fun little details to the otherwise very serious affair of making coffee makes the process that much more alluring.
An easy, breezy and light area for making coffee lets you visually relax a little as you brew up a cup. A great way to combat stressful mornings.
