A “Bullet Proof” Breakfast Nook Facelift
My clients top priority for this area was to make it as “bullet proof” as possible.
With 3 kids under 10, the fabrics had to be easily wipe able and long lasting.
It started with the window. She wanted a window here……and I wanted a non straight back banquet so I came up with a softer design with a custom window.
The window had to be custom made…and then it was some trouble to have it installed being the house has masonry walls. But its different and fresh and I love it.
Banquet Fabric: Great Plains Marrakesh Nylon/ banquet custom to go around window.
Chairs by Fenton Poston (call for details) /Fabric: Brentano Snakeskin Vinyl
Table Base & top: Bradley Hughes base in pewter, but the table top is custom planked driftwood finish with a MARINE Finish (used for boats) so the kids can live with it and the mom can have luxe look that is low maintenance.
Walls: I needed something that was just right to pair with a Meredith Pardue painting that would be in the family room diagonal from this area. I found a picture of this painting by Richard Giglio called “Word Painting” in a book in my libary. So I took to Simes Studios and Jorge created an interpretation that had similar properties but was something original that would work with the painting across the way. The clients speak fluent Italian so they used verses from Dante’s Divine Comedy. He did the work on canvas so it could be wallpapered to the wall since care was important to us to have an epoxy finish so it would be completely cleanable.
Chandelier: David Iatesta at Summerhill in Chicago
