BREAKFAST / MORNING ROOM
Characterizing “conspicuous consumption with a conscience,” the Breakfast Room juxtaposes the idea of sustainable design with maximalism and the element of excess, but with restraint. Finishes and products were selected with the idea of sustainability in mind but with an eye for fashion. The woven wallcovering is crafted of recycled newspaper and the ceiling features a large scale black and white hand-illustration of tree branches and magnolia buds. The wood grain of the painted white floor is highlighted with black for definition. Vintage, recycled luxury goods shopping bags and boxes were deconstructed and upcycled into meticulously embroidered and embellished works of art. Each piece of furniture is custom designed, including the colorful glass light fixture and glass curtain, both of which were commissioned in Murano, Italy, and the grasscloth wrapped breakfast table. Three-dimensional embroidered butterflies on the ceiling bring attention to the often overlooked “fifth-wall”. Although small, the Breakfast Room is an adorned jewel box that sparks conversation and makes a lasting impression.
