A Chair in the Breakfast Room {Pretend Banquette}

Dear Friends,
I thought I’d show you a couple of updates to the breakfast room. Before Christmas, I finally got a seagrass rug.  It is from Home Decorators and is just what I was looking for.  It is rough on the feet but has already proven to be spill and stain -resistant.   With small children, I can’t see any other option and so far this seems to be much better than the indoor-outdoor rug that we tossed during the move.   I wouldn’t choose a rug that is quite so textured for the family room but I am pleased with the quality.

Also, I took down the curtains for a cleaner look right now.  I actually took them down to finally lengthen them but I found I was enjoying the fact that they were down.  I’m not against putting them back up but that has fallen by the wayside for now.

This chair has taken up residence in Reid’s room, the living room, and now the breakfast room. I love the banquette look but our windows don’t really allow for that so my corner chair will have to do.  I’m finding it to be a cozy addition.

I tried it there once before but it was before the dresser and rug so it seemed to stick out.  Now it tucks right in.  Oh, and I’m excited about a makeover on the horizon for that dresser!

Do you have any “extra” seating in the kitchen or breakfast area that isn’t at the table?

    Music started playing when I opened this internet site, so frustrating!
    I believe one of your ads triggered my internet browser to resize, you might want to put that on your blacklist.
    I just added this web site to my google reader, excellent stuff. Can not get enough!
    This is a fantastic website, could you be involved in doing an interview regarding just how you designed it? If so e-mail me!

    ages and yours is the best I’ve found so far.

  1. […] Friends, Earlier this week, I mentioned my partiality to the banquette.  While I am limited to my cozy corner chair, I can’t help but swoon over these amazing banquette combinations. From corner built-ins to […]
