The Whittingtons opened some of their Christmas gifts early.  The big changes here were a new side board from Bobo Intriguing Objects, new artwork from Left Bank, a new Masland rug and a fabulous new Roost light fixture.  There is also a new mid-century sconce from West Elm and a new sideboard lamp from Mr. Brown.

Love the new light fixture by....

We love the texture in this Roost fixture.

Meanwhile, over in the breakfast area:

We ripped out the banquettes and added cabinetry.  The walls are covered with a gorgeous, textured cork by Anna French for Thibaut.  Both cabinets were painted a deep, glossy blue and dressed up with new brass hardware.

We also added study space for the kids and a new table and chairs.

Cocktail space for the holidays, study space when school starts again!
