Ma Maison…the Breakfast Room

Last week, I took you for a tour through my den. Just off the den and kitchen is the breakfast room. The breakfast room is where J & I usually eat our meals if we do not use the snack bar in the kitchen.
Now for your tour of my breakfast room…
The center of the breakfast room features a table covered in burlap from Ballard Designs & green apple toile fabric from Aux Belles Choses. The wooden rusch seat chairs are from The Plantation Shop in Amelia Island. The oyster bowl is a Christmas gift by J from Oysteria.
On the rear wall is a former TV armoire turned into a dry bar which is very useful for entertaining and storage of various bar necessities.
Check out the bar transformations:
Atop the bar is a collection of various glass cloches collected from antique malls and specialty shops from here to Atlanta. The clock is from Ballard Designs circa 2004.
The wall features jarboe sconces from now closed, Nest, a fave in Atlanta.
The wall also houses my vast collection of menus from Commander’s Palace. Each menu serves as a momento of a special occasion at one of our favorite New Orleans institutions. I had them framed a couple years ago as a Christmas present for J. Atop the framed menus are two original paintings by local artist Martin Welch. Martin Welch: Click here!
Two antique chairs are covered in coral cascade fabric from Lewis & Sheron in Atlanta.
Along the sliding glass door wall is an antique cabinet house my collection of antler handled utensils-some real, some faux. On the top of the cabinet are three crystal decanters and a brass & crystal lamp from Hill Street Warehouse.
Atop the cabinet is a chalkboard from Pottery Barn which displays menus, messages, and various seasonal sayings.
A George Rodrigue signed Jolie Blonde print rests on the the same wall. The print is a gift I received from a family friend when I was in college and have cherished for many years.
The rug is another sisal bordered in brown fabric.
I hope you have enjoyed this tour of my breakfast room.

  1. Picture perfect! I'm still loving the bar makeover. Can't wait for the next "tour"!

  2. I think breakfast there would be so interesting. I'd be reading the menus on the wall and checking out that gorgeous tablecloth.

  3. What a fun tour! I love the wall of menus - I spent my 50th birthday at Commander's Palace in NOLA. We have, also, eaten at the one in Destin, although, I am not sure that one is still open. Thanks for sharing - I am like Ginger and looking forward to the rest of the tour!

  4. What a cozy spot for dining!

  5. Such fun! I really like how the room expresses your interests and experiences.

  6. Loved the tour! You have a lovely home with great taste...the style I like! Your gallery wall is awesome, I always wanted to do one. Have a great week.

  7. I love your breakfast room and have enjoyed seeing all the wonderful elements you've included.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. Your mini bar is fabulous! I found you at Sherry's Open House. Robyn

  9. Hi Ron, I hope you are enjoying your summer off from school. Your breakfast room is fabulous and I especially love your collection of antler handle utensils. Thanks for joining the Open House party.

  10. Great room, Ron! I love your toile table topper and the burlap {I've got two of those myself}, too. Great gallery wall featuring the menus. Love the chalkboard; it looks like the perfect spot for it.
