I'm still slightly perplexed about what to do with the windows. I'm usually all about window treatments, but I don't want to obscure the view. Originally I planned to design an interior awning that wrapped the three windows. Now I'm concerned it will keep the eye focused on the inside rather than drawing it outside. For now, I have simple roller shades to help insulate during the winter.
If you look closely, you can see the creek flowing in the background.The bench is another piece from Redford House. We meant to have a bench built in, but when we moved this bench as a temporary measure, it proved to be a perfect fit. For extra comfort, I added three down bed pillows and some quilted shams. I may redo it one day, then again, I may not.
I'm really happy with the light.We ordered the shades from Pierre Deux.
I love my little Currier and Ives prints.
My husband insisted on the beams and I insisted on the skylights.
The woodwork above the beadboard echoes the woodwork in the two photos below.
Remember Earnest's Room?
I'm very happy that my husband was adamant about repeating the beams from the sitting room in the breakfast room.
This is where my "Trusty Chair" spends all its time these days.
I think it misses me.
The cabinet holds a television. I love to sit in the corner and watch Masterpiece Theatre on Sunday nights.
I keep the top of the cabinet simple and natural. I collected the pine cones near the old cemetery and the cuttings came from the garden.
I still need to find hardware for the pocket door.For some reason, this is my favorite view of the room.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Brambly's breakfast room.
