Original Eat In Kitchen Status
This is how our eat in looked when we moved in.
You can see from the before shots that we had travertine floors, a small island, and a railing to our sunken living room.
Eat in Kitchen Progress
We Changed The Floor Plan
During the Fall 2019 One Room Challenge we rearranged the kitchen floor plan. By turning the handrails into a banquette we were able to make room for a longer island.
Latest Eat In Updates
While I did like this look, I have opted to replace the fringe, and swap out the chairs for new Serena and Lily Balboa Side Chairs.
We are also trying out a faux print cowhide under the rug, which may or may not stay.
This is how the zone looks without the rug.
I have been trying to work more wicker into my decor because I love the way natural feel adds balance to my glam elements and the Serena and Lily Balboa Side Chair is a gorgeous choice.
For now at least, I plan to keep the green chairs here. I like that the olive speaks to the wallpaper and the drapes in the next room.
Also noteworthy: I was able to choose from a selection of custom options for these Balboa side chair cushions seat covers. I opted for this blue and white gingham pattern because it looks greats with my navy pinstripe banquet.
We received the Balboa Side Chair Cushions before the chairs, and during that time my kids spilled on the gingham. My husband was very concerned when he saw the mess. I, however, was not worried. I knew that they were made from Perennial fabric, which is a solution dyed acrylic. That means that the spills washed right off. I have heard that even the worst of stains (think red wine spills) are not a problem. This has to do with the way the stain blocking power is woven into each thread of the fabric vs a spray added at the end.
One other feature that I love about the Serena and Lily Balboa Side Chairs are the brass feet. It is such a fun design choice to pair a little glam with the earthy wicker element. It makes for a chair that is effortlessly beautiful.
I love that the new updates to our eat in area make it more functional and beautiful.
Thanks for joining me on this tour. I am excited to show some really big projects coming up in the works soon.
