Breakfast Nook: Before and After

September 5, 2013 at 5:33 AM 4 comments

Yesterday, we did an installation for a very sweet family.  I have loved working with this family and I’m so happy with how the project worked out.  Most importantly, the client is happy and that’s what it’s all about.

One fun portion that we worked on was a breakfast nook that sits off of the kitchen.  This is what it looked like when we were called on…


Fabulous windows with great light and perfect spot for meals but my client wanted an updated look and so here it is afterwards…


One of my favorite elements was adding the tufted back and new seat cushions to their built in.  IMG_7682

We paired a built in bench with a tufted back with a crystal chandelier to give a more traditional look.  Then, we mixed this with a knotted wood table and navy chairs to bring in an industrial vibe.  I love how the two worked together.

    Wow, wow, wow! Talk about a transformation, it looks beautiful! I LOVE the tufted booth and the juxtaposition of the metal chairs and rustic table. Such an unexpected combination and it looks fantantastic! The after seriously looks like a page in a magazine. Amazing job!

    I love the chairs. Where did you get them? I’ve been looking for some metal chairs for awhile.
