Back in January I did a post on my kitchen. At that time I mentioned my banquette would soon have cushions. It's July and they are finally being made! I choose a very durable vinyl by Kravet with a crocodile imprint, because I'm a sucker for anything animal print! Vinyl is an excellent option in a kitchen....it's wipeable and well, that says it all. I always suggest wipeable over washable when it comes to the kitchen. Don't we all have enough wash to do without adding kitchen textiles?
Here's what the seating area of our kitchen looked like when we moved into our home.
I love cooking, so meal time in our household is family time. With that in mind I wanted to maximize the seating area in the kitchen to accomodate lots of people. I had a banquette built around the perimeter of the wall, switched out the lighting fixture and moved the electrical up the wall to center it in the room (not the windows) and painted the entire kitchen Benjamin Moore's Bunny Gray. I hung the photo ledges to display family photos and my kids artwork.
I will have the cushions shortly and I'll share the finished look!
