Makeover Monday: A Fresh Breakfast Nook


This small eating area (part of an open concept kitchen and great room) screamed utilitarian pit stop versus Sunday brunch escape for our Augusta, GA clients.  Of course our clients wanted Sunday Brunch escape.  After a lot of debate we exchanged the clean lined table and chairs for a farm style table from the dining room and started over.

While the clients loved the natural light from the large windows, they wanted a little more privacy from the neighbors – and they definitely needed more color in the space.

The addition of drapes out of a Ikat Suzani print, a wool and sisal rug from Design Materials, and a Lee Industries custom banquet covered in a Thibaut coral fabric warms the space and adds a punch of color and pattern. The seagrass side chairs add texture and fit well with the farm style table (stolen from the client’s dining room). A classic pendant adds the finishing touch. An inviting breakfast nook begging for you to peacefully begin your day!
