One of our longtime clients wanted to transform the breakfast room off their kitchen. We envisioned a sleek space with LOADS of seating. A place that felt comfortable enough for casual breakfasts, yet tailored enough for semi-formal dinners. The style of the room had to coordinate with the vibe that was happening in the rest of the house. So, we kept the colors simple: different shades of grey, cream and white, with a dark contrast of ebony wood.
The breakfast room itself features windows on three sides and a vaulted ceiling. So it's about the most cheerful place you can imagine. In the winter, I can imagine sitting here and sipping coffee while the snow falls... In the summer, it's the perfect place to sit with open windows and a warm breeze. :)
(designing a 3-piece custom banquette with tight upholstered back, waterfall skirt, and a french seam)
We selected a heathered grey upholstery fabric that would wear well for this busy family. The finish on the custom table would be a weathered ebony wood. Double x-base pedestals would anchor the table and create visual interest.
(after)RH Modern adds just the right amount of sparkle without taking anything away from the amazing view outdoors. The heathered sisal rug hides EVERYTHING and it brings such beautiful texture and warmth to the room. I love how this space turned out. Our first installation of 2016-- not a bad way to start the year. :)
