{design board: breakfast nook}

casual and comfortable yet completely stylish.  This breakfast nook design board is for a middle aged couple who are building their dream house now that their children have left the nest.  They are outdoor-sy people who love gardening and nature.  Thus, we were inspired by two of natures prevalent colors: blue & green.  The window treatments will be done in the graphic ikat pattern which pulls out the sea blue and olive green we will use throughout the space.  The break fast nook is lined with windows so the window treatment will make a huge impact and frame the gorgeous view of their backyard garden.  On the floor will be another more subtle graphic statement with a chevron ticked rug in neutral linen colors.  The table will be this gorgeous chunky pedestal table which has unique metal detailing around the edge.  This gives it a rustic chic look.  To add some texture to the room we will place 6 dark brown wicker chairs around the table to complete the look.  Above the table will hang this large outdoor-sy  pendant lantern.  We will put a dual purpose serving cart/console table next to the only blank wall in the space.  We will complete the look with some unique accessories, wicker vases, olive green dinnerware, zinc industrial letters spelling: EAT, and some fun linen napkins.  This breakfast nook is classy enough for a nice supper with the neighbors or casual enough for reading the newspaper with a cup of coffee on Saturday mornings.
